Product Description:

Economics is a subject you learn by doing. Foundations of Economics breaks the mold of a traditional text and becomes a practice-oriented learning system. Each chapter uses a Checklist to focus students' attention on the most important key concepts. A discrete section introduces each of these core concepts and is immediately followed by a Checkpoint, a full page of practice that applies the concept. The result is a patient, confidence-building approach that prepares students to use economics in their lives, regardless of what their future career will be. Many instructors turn to online assessment in MyEconLab as a way to encourage practice without needing to grade homework by hand. Bade and Parkin have written online versions of their Checkpoints and end-of-chapter problems in MyEconLab so that there is complete synchronicity between the content online and in the text. MyEconLab New Design is now available for this title! MyEconLab New Design offers: *One Place for All of Your Courses. Improved registration experience and a single point of access for instructors and students who are teaching and learning multiple MyLab/Mastering courses.*A Simplified User Interface.
