The MindTap Learning Path guides students through readings, multimedia, and activities designed to follow the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension up to analysis and
application. By hiding, rearranging, or adding your own content, you control what students see and when they see it and match the Learning Path to your course syllabus exactly.
1. ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITY. These short, participation-based activities start out each chapter of the MindTap learning path as tools to help you pull students into considering the material to be covered applies to them before they dive into it in detail.
2. MEDIA-RICH MINDTAP READER with CONCEPTCLIPS and SELF-CHECK QUIZZES: Students have varying learning preferences, but in order for you to get further in the class time you have, it’s important for them to be familiar with key terms and chapter content. In addition to eReader tools that allow them to capture highlights and notes in a common location for easy review and an app that will read the text aloud to them, students will find interactive tools that support learning key financial terminology – like the new ConceptClips. Developed by Dr. Mike Brandl of The Ohio State University, these vocabulary animations provide students with a memorable and humorous auditory and visual representation of the important terminology for the course. Each ConceptClip has an accompanying short self-quiz so students can check their understanding before moving on. Additionally, each section of text ends with a short reading comprehension self-check quiz for students to use to check their understanding and stay engaged as they move through the material.
3. ASSIGNMENT. Challenge students to apply the concepts they’ve learned with these problem sets, written to assess them on the key topics covered in each chapter and to provide immediate feedback and explanations as they work.
4. CRITICAL THINKING ACTIVITY. Here’s a chance to test your students’ understanding and to encourage them apply what they’ve learned. In these activities, they’ll be introduced to a short, real-world scenario and asked questions about what to do. These provide opportunities for students to to prove to themselves that they understand the chapter’s material, and how it will be important to their own financial future.
