Questions that drive interest, applications that illustrate concepts, and the tools to test and solidify comprehension.
Students come into their first Economics course thinking they will gain a better understanding of the economy around them. Unfortunately, they often leave with many unanswered questions. To ensure students actively internalize economics, O'Sullivan/Sheffrin/Perez use chapter-opening questions to spark interest on important economic concepts, applications that vividly illustrate those concepts, and chapter-ending tools that test and solidify understanding.
MyEconLab and the Text are in Synch
All of the end-of-chapter text questions are replicated in MyEconLab with the same numbers to make creating homework easier for instructors, and remediation easier for students.
MyEconLab New Design is Available for this Title!
Draw Students Into the Material
Chapter-opening questions spark students’ interest on important economic concepts. After drawing students into the material, these opening questions are paired with in-chapter applications that bring the economic concept to life. Exercises that test students’ understanding of the questions, concepts and applications appear in the end-of chapter materials.
Demystify the Tools of Economics
The 5 key principles of economics show students the logic of economic reasoning and demystify the tools of economics. The 5 principles are first presented in Chapter 2, and then the authors return to these 5 principles throughout the text to remind students of the underlying logic behind newly presented concepts:
Apply the Concepts
This is an Applications-driven textbook. The authors carefully selected over 120 real-world Applications that help students develop and master essential economic concepts.
Easily Incorporate Economic Experiments in your Course
Economic experiments in O'Sullivan/Sheffrin/Perez actively involve the student in role-playing as consumers, producers, and policy makers. These experiments stimulate student interest and are easy for professors to use and implement in a classroom of any size. See Chapter 4, Supply, Demand and Market Equilibrium after the end-of-chapter material.
Designed to Capture Students’ Interest
Do you think your current text is too cluttered with boxes and colors that take students’ focus off of the important material? This edition features a streamlined design with no boxed features that draw students’ attention away from the core concepts. An “application” flows in the body of the chapter material so it will not distract students and so they will not skip the material.
Help your Students Study
How do you use your text’s end-of-chapter material? The end-of-chapter material is organized around the major sections of the chapter and its "applications" so the student can better organize his/her study plan.
In addition to updating all the figures and data, the authors made a number of other key changes in this edition. They include the following:
The authors also incorporated a total of 61 exciting new applications into this edition, including 11 in the common chapters (Chapters 1 — 4), 17 in macroeconomics, and 33 in microeconomics. In addition, they incorporated a total of 19 new chapter-opening stories, including 2 in the common chapters, 10 in macroeconomics, and 7 in microeconomics. These fresh applications and chapter openers show the widespread relevance of economic analysis.
In the chapters common to macroeconomics and microeconomics, the new applications include incentives to purchase hybrid cars (Chapter 1), choosing how fast to sail a container ship (Chapter 2), the markets for meteorites (Chapter 3), and the economic forces behind the proposal to include sheep shearing as an Olympic sport (Chapter 4).
