Overview

MindTap™ Economics for Gwartney/Stroup/Sobel/Macpherson's Macroeconomics: Private and Public Choice, 15th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. The MindTap learning path begins with Audio Cases with Quizzing. The MindTap Reader features a variety of media assets specifically designed to address the challenges that students and instructors have told us impede learning. ConceptClips address the challenge of understanding economics terminology that students face when first introduced to the subject matter. Graphing at a Glance video tutorials allow students to see graphs physically move along the axes. Auto-graded homework assignments from Aplia™ give students hands-on application without adding to your workload. Access to this product is valid for 6 months of usage.
