Promote critical thinking and application of key economic principles

Digital Interactives

Economic principles are not static ideas, and learning about them shouldn’t be either!

Digital Interactives are dynamic and engaging activities that promote critical thinking and application of key economic principles where students can explore, apply, compare, and analyze a topic. Students can practice their graphing skills using a graphing tool to plot points on a graph that relates to economics concepts.

Digital Interactives can be assigned and graded within MyLab, or used as a lecture tool to encourage engagement, classroom conversation, and group work.
