Overview

Aplia is an online interactive learning solution that improves comprehension and outcomes by increasing student effort and engagement. Founded by a professor to enhance his own courses, Aplia provides automatically graded assignments with detailed, immediate explanations on every question. The interactive assignments have been developed to address the major concepts covered in the textbook. Students get immediate feedback on their work (not only what they got right or wrong, but why), and they can choose to see another set of related questions if they want more practice. A searchable ebook (MindTap Reader) is available inside the course as well, for easy reference. Aplia's simple-to-use course management interface allows instructors to post announcements, upload course materials, host student discussions, e-mail students, and manage the gradebook. Personalized support from a knowledgeable and friendly support team also offers assistance in customizing assignments to the instructor's course schedule. To learn more, ask your Cengage Learning sales representative to provide a demo -- or view a specific demo for this book, at www.aplia.com.

Aplia™ significantly improves outcomes and promotes critical thinking by increasing student effort and engagement.

Aplia Instructor Testimonial: Jarren Gonzales

Hear how Jarren Gonzales of Orange Coast Community College uses Aplia to build foundational skills.

“I was very engaged; the content in Aplia is useful. The study tools and materials in Aplia most definitely help me feel more prepared. I understood more than I would have otherwise.”

“[Aplia] has facilitated a greater level of meaningful engagement for my students, and has prepared them more effectively to be successful on the TSI Writing exam. Thank you.”

“Aplia helps and encourages the students to do the readings and pay more attention to the information, and it will allow you to bring in more examples and have APPLIED examples.”
