    New products in principles of economics have been eager to address innovative ways of using technology to teach this introductory course. However, they all share one characteristic: they are still grounded in the traditional textbook format.

    In a new, “digital-first” approach for principles of economics, Carlos Asarta and Roger Butters offer the core content of economics in a way that breaks free from the constraints of a traditional textbook’s structure and format, empowering instructors to take advantage of new approaches in teaching methodology to revitalize their courses. Instead of lengthy, narrative-driven chapters, content in Connect Master: Economics is organized into accessible modules that span the most commonly taught concepts in this course.

    Over 200 distinct learning objectives are each anchored by an engaging 2-4 minute professionally-produced video (in both English and Spanish) and supported by dynamic learning resources meant to address different types of learners (such as interactive graphs, worked examples, and applications). Concepts are delivered to students through the most advanced adaptive learning technology on the market, using continual assessment to personalize the learning experience for each individual student. Through the adaptive workflow, students move efficiently through the content, encountering only the learning resources that are relevant to them, helping them work towards higher levels of mastery and critical thought.
