Everyone agrees that they only way to learn economics is to do it. Rote memorization does not work. The keys to success in economics are active involvement and working problems. To help students succeed, the Bade/Parkin package is designed to encourage learning by doing. After all, practice makes perfect!Practice is the cornerstone of the innovative Bade/Parkin approach. Each chapter of Foundations of Economics concentrates on a manageable number of core concepts. A full page Checkpoint-containing a Practice Problem with solution and a parallel Exercise-immediately follows each main idea. Checkpoints serve as stopping points and encourage students to practice using a concept before moving on.Different learning styles need different learning tools, and eFoundations, Bade/Parkin's extensive web environment, puts students in the driver's seat and allows them to use technology in the way that suits them best.
