The ‘New’ Aplia
What is it?
Aplia is the most successful and widely used homework solution in the Economics market. 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.
Arnold’s 12th Edition includes a fully interactive eReader embedded in the Aplia product. This new approach combines the functionality you and your students are coming to expect from a modern eReader (text search, highlighting, note-taking) with our exclusive embedded media.
- An optimized iPad experience, allowing students to access content on their mobile devices anywhere and anytime.
- Improved graphing with better graph precision, a new fill-area tool, and an improved shifter tool.
- Expanded partial credit and task level grading – providing feedback to students at the task level in addition to the problem level for more granular and incremental guidance to coach students where they need it most.
- Closer alignment between the end-of-chapter questions and Aplia homework.
- End of Chapter Assignments, along with the traditional Aplia assignments that have previously been available, are now delivered in the Aplia format with graphing functionality.

Cengage Learning’s Write Experience allows you to assess written communication skills without adding to your workload. Instructors have told us it’s important that students can write effectively in order to communicate and think critically about economics. Write Experience uses artificial intelligence to score student writing instantly and accurately, as well as provide students with detailed revision goals and feedback on their writing to help them improve.

Adaptive Test Prep
NEW! Adaptive Test Prep -- Only available in MindTap -- Adaptive where it counts!
The new Adaptive Test Prep App helps students prepare for test success by allowing them to generate multiple practice tests across chapters.
The program grades practice tests and indicates the areas that have or have not been mastered.
Students are presented with an Adaptive Study Plan that has a series of highly targeted remediation resources, including "Teachable Moment" videos created by the author. This allows students to better assess their level of understanding of the course material prior to the exam.
|| The Adaptive Study Plan also takes students directly to pertinent pages in the text where practice question materials are referenced.
Students also receive a robust explanation of the problem and a video ConceptClip, where appropriate.
NEW! Progression Graphs – Available in both MindTap and Aplia!
Many economic graphs have been digitally enhanced in the Arnold, 12e eReader using our new Progression Graph technology.
|| Progression Graphs decompose each graphical exhibit into several layers while still maintaining a rich, economic pedagogy.
NOW with Progression Graph functionality, students can work at their own pace in order to see a complex graph being built step-by-step.
