Show synopsis Economics is a subject you learn by doing. Foundations of Economics breaks the mold of a traditional text and becomes a practice-oriented learning system. Each chapter uses a Checklist to focus students' attention on the most important key concepts. A discrete section introduces each of these core concepts and is immediately followed by a Checkpoint, a full page of practice that applies the concept. The result is a patient, confidence-building approach that prepares students to use economics in their lives, regardless of what their future career will be. Many instructors turn to online assessment in MyEconLab as a way to encourage practice without needing to grade homework by hand. Bade and Parkin have written online versions of their Checkpoints and end-of-chapter problems in MyEconLab so that there is complete synchronicity between the content online and in the text.
