  • MCEACHERN LEADS BY EXAMPLE. The author introduces each macroeconomic idea by using common everyday student experiences to bridge the gap between what students already know and the unfamiliar world of economics.
  • "CHECKPOINT QUESTIONS" HELP ASSESS RECALL. After each major section, your students are asked a key "Checkpoint Question" to help evaluate how well they recall and understand what they just read.
  • END-OF-CHAPTER QUESTIONS AND PROBLEMS ARE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED BY CHAPTER CONCEPTS. These questions and problems that correspond with major concepts give you flexibility for easier assignments while helping students find the specific material they need to review if a question or problem gives them difficulty.
  • BOOK IS FULLY INTEGRATED WITH APLIA®, THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ONLINE PRODUCT FOR ECONOMICS. Aplia® offers interactive tools to help better prepare macroeconomics students.

Analytics and reports provide a snapshot of class progress, time in course, engagement and completion rates.
  • CLEAR, COLOR-CODED GRAPHS ENHANCE UNDERSTANDING. Special care has been taken to ensure all graphics are understandable with curves that are systematically color-coded to enhance student understanding.
  • "TO REVIEW" ENSURES STUDENT COMPREHENSION. These helpful sections sum up lengthy concepts. Brief one-sentence questions, inserted into the flow of the text, make certain that students comprehend the macroeconomic concepts they're studying and are ready to continue through the material.
