RELATABLE EXAMPLES THAT ENGAGE STUDENTS

Mateer and Coppock firmly believe that helping students see how their lives are affected by economics is critical to effective teaching. They include real-world examples throughout the text's key features: Practice What You Know; Economics in the Real World; Economics in the Media; and Economics for Life.

TEACHES STUDENTS HOW TO APPLY ECONOMIC CONCEPTS TO DECISION-MAKING

Icons explained in Chapter 1 are then used throughout the text to help students connect five foundational concepts that drive economics decision-making: incentives, trade-offs, opportunity cost, marginal thinking and trade-created value. "Practice What You Know" features in every chapter teach student to check their understanding, learn how to solve a problem and make a decision or judgment (often relying on the use of associated mathematics). At the end of each chapter, Mateer and Coppock provide Study Problems (increased in the Second Edition) as well as three Solved Problems—a unique feature of our text—that engages students in applying chapter concepts to real economic problems.

PRECISE ECONOMICS IN EXACTLY THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF DETAIL

Every graph in the text and in Smartwork5 uses colours in a consistent manner to help students easily identify common elements. For example, supply is always red, demand is always blue and profit is always green. Where appropriate, equations are provided throughout the text. In the "Practice What You Know" and "Solved Problem" features, students are given mathematical information to support written explanations. Along with the essentials of the discipline, Mateer and Coppock cover topics more modern or advanced but at the appropriate level. Topics include Behavioral Economics, Health Insurance and Health Care, Growth, and International Finance.
