Enhanced Videos

Arnold’s Enhanced Videos: Video Questions and Problems and Working with Diagrams

The 11th Edition of Arnold’s Economics takes video tutorials to another level. Previously, Arnold’s Video Office Hours provided students access to the author himself, explaining key concepts much the way an instructor would during office hours. NOW, students can benefit from two new video types that will further explain difficult concepts and homework roadblocks. Students can play and replay the tutorials as they work through homework assignments or prepare for quizzes and tests, almost as though they had an instructor by their side the whole time. Ideal for homework, study outside the classroom, or distance learning, these tutorials give students extra instructional help whenever and wherever it's most useful.

About

Overview

The economy is tough – but economics doesn’t have to be! Let Roger Arnold’s ECONOMICS open up the world of economic analysis for your students. With more detailed coverage of the financial and economic crisis than any other principles text on the market, fun and innovative pedagogy, easy customization, and fully integrated digital and course management options, ECONOMICS is the perfect solution for any classroom. With intriguing pop culture examples, the text bolsters student interest by illustrating the unexpected places economics occurs, and how economic forces link events to our lives and are part of your student’s world 24/7. Building on the Video Office Hours lectures developed by Roger Arnold for the tenth edition, the eleventh edition features two entirely new video assets--See It Solved and GraphIt! See It Solved videos walk the student through a worked problem, similar to those found at the end of each chapter, providing an ideal study tool for reference as students work through assigned problems. GraphIt! videos demonstrate key concepts in graphing in short (averaging three to five minutes) video pieces that students can play and replay to see how the graphs are built. Ideal for self-study or for online courses, the complete video assets available with ECONOMICS provide even greater flexibility for instructors. The eleventh edition is integrated with powerful resources, such as Aplia, CengageNOW, and Cengage’s CourseMate for Economics, which provide unsurpassed planning and management tools, like homework that is automatically assigned, graded, and recorded online, or tracking of students’ time spent with online resources. With new content reflecting a changing economy and new resources addressing the needs of a changing classroom, ECONOMICS, Eleventh Edition, is an ideal text for principles courses.

Features and Benefits

  • Chapter 18 on the financial crisis of 2007-2009: Arnold’s ECONOMICS, Eleventh Edition, is the only principles of economics text currently on the market that focuses an entire chapter on the financial crisis. Covering all aspects of the crisis from its historical roots and various factors that contributed to the breakdown to policy responses from the government, this chapter brings together the context and direction that instructors and students are asking for in economic analysis of the recent crisis.
  • Video Office Hours: These videos feature Roger Arnold as he walks students through key concepts and graphs in each chapter. Using innovative video and whiteboard technology, the author provides both short concept pieces and longer lectures for each chapter, talking through the concepts just as he would in class and displaying on the whiteboard lecture points and demonstrating graphs. Students can play and replay the lectures as often as needed to review concepts.
  • Office Hours: This feature emulates the kinds of questions students bring to economics instructors after class. Office Hours explores key concepts such as how the money supply works; the purpose of the PPF; whether price ceilings are really good or bad for consumers; and the purpose of the AD/AS framework.
  • Economics 24/7: Illustrating the practical relevance of key concepts, this feature explores anything that can be explained through economic analysis. For example: Why do people specialize and trade? Will a tax on soda help reduce obesity? Why might states ban real estate commission rebates? Which is better, a tax rebate or a tax bonus? Economics 24/7 helps students learn to look for economic forces at work--and understand the principles behind them.
  • Aplia: Available bundled with the text or as a digital solution, Aplia is fully integrated with the eleventh edition. The comprehensive online, interactive problem sets, analyses, tutorials, experiments, and critical-thinking exercises give students hands-on application without adding to instructors’ workload. Based on discovery learning, Aplia requires students to take an active role in the learning process--helping them improve their economic understanding and ability to relate to the economic concepts presented. Instructors can assign homework that is automatically graded and recorded.
  • Virtually Endless Customization Choices: Chapters can be rearranged, online chapters can be customized in print, and instructors can add any topic, including their own research and notes, or specialized topics pulled from the Cengage Economics Issues database. Aplia customization is fully integrated, giving students hands-on application opportunities without adding to instructors’ workloads.
