Thinkwell's Economics with Steven Tomlinson lays the foundation for success because, unlike a traditional economics book, students actually like using it. Thinkwell works with the learning styles of students who have proven that traditional textbooks are not effective. Watch one Thinkwell video lecture and you’ll understand why Thinkwell works better.
Comprehensive Video Tutorials We’ve built Thinkwell's Economics around a series of 262 multimedia tutorials, providing dozens of hours of instructional material. Compared with a traditional textbook, Thinkwell offers a more engaging, more effective way for students to learn.
Rather than reading dense chunks of text for homework, students watch video lectures filled with illustrations, examples, and even humor. Students report learning material more easily with Thinkwell than traditional textbooks.
Interactive Exercises with Feedback Thinkwell's Economics contains nearly 2000 exercise items with fully worked-out solutions and explanations for the right and wrong answers. Students can work on the exercises at the computer or print them out to work on later.
Once students enter their answers in the computer, the items are automatically graded and the results reported to professors. Review Notes While the video lectures are the heart of Thinkwell products, we also offer concise, illustrated review notes, a glossary, transcripts of the video lectures, and links to relevant websites. All of these materials may be viewed online, and the notes and transcripts may be printed and kept for reference.
Custom Website We will build a website around the customized table of contents and assignments for every course using Thinkwell. Materials will be presented in exactly the order professors want them.
Professors can make changes to their websites with our easy-to-use online tools; or contact us and we’ll be happy to take care of them.
Course Management Tools Assignments from Thinkwell's Economics are automatically graded, and the results are reported to professors. We also provide aggregate data about the exercise items that are giving students the most trouble. All of this information may be exported to other computerized gradebook systems.
