Stevenson / Wolfers Principles of Economics
In Principles of Economics, students will learn how the basic tools of economics can be applied to decisions that range from personal and professional goals to public policy and the broader economy. Combining fundamental theory with modern applications, familiar examples, and plenty of opportunities to practice using economic tools, Principles of Economics helps students to develop economic insight.
Principles of Economics is available with SaplingPlus online learning system. Our integrated, online learning system combines powerful multimedia resources with an integrated e-Book, robust homework, and a wealth of interactives, creating an extraordinary new learning resource for students.
Key features include:
- Online homework helps students get better grades with targeted instructional feedback tailored to the individual.
- Step-by-Step graphs break complex graphs and other figures into their component parts to help students understand how graphs are built and what they represent. Captions on each step help the students to understand what’s happening as the figures change.
- Decision Points allow students to explore their own decision-making process and how economic principles and thinking can inform their decisions. Students work step-by-step through decision-making scenarios, receiving feedback about how the economic principles did (or did not) play into their choices. Decision Points help students apply economic insights to their everyday lives.
