A practice-oriented learning system that breaks the traditional textbook mould
To help students focus on the most important concepts—and effectively practice application of those concepts—Microeconomics & Macroeconomics are both structured around a Checklist/Checkpoint system. The result is a patient, confidence-building program that prepares students to use economics in their everyday lives, regardless of what their future career will be.

MyLab Economics has been designed and refined with a single purpose in mind: to create those moments of understanding that transform the difficult into the clear and obvious. With comprehensive homework, quiz, test, activity, and tutorial options, instructors can manage all their assessment needs in one program.

MyLab Economics is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
The duration of access to MyLab Economics is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study.



A practice-oriented learning system with a global perspective.


To help students focus on the most important concepts—and effectively practice the application of those concepts—Microeconomics is structured around a system of checkpoints which teach students how to think like an economist.

 

Eye On boxes throughout each chapter challenge students to apply theory to important issues and problems that shape our global society and individual decisions.

The result is a patient, confidence-building program that prepares students to use economics in their everyday lives, regardless of what their future career will be.
