Summary

Foundations of Macroeconomics was developed on the premise that economics is a core competency for the responsible citizen and a foundation tool for every type of career. The Bade/Parkin package is designed to encourage learning by doing. Each chapter concentrates on a manageable number of core concepts that are called out in the beginning-of-chapter Checklist. Students know what they're expected to learn and are given the chance to apply those lessons to real-world problems. Practice is the cornerstone of the innovative Bade/Parkin approach. A full page Checkpointcontaining a Practice Problem with solution and a parallel Exerciseimmediately follows each main idea. Checkpoints serve as stopping points and encourage students to practice using a concept before moving on. Different learning styles need different learning tools, and Bade/Parkin's extensive and tightly integrated web environment puts students in the driver's seat and allows them to use technology in the way that suits them best.
