Math for Business and Life has several
valuable assessment tools to help instructors and students.
A Pre-Quiz, free of charge, helps evaluate the level of each student at the start of the course. The questions cover basic concepts; we predict that over half of students who take the Pre-Quiz should be able to answer at least 80% of the questions correctly. For questions missed, students are given page numbers of the text to review. Instructors are provided with a summary report that shows how each student did, as well as how many students missed each question. The summary report should provide a basis for how much time instructors should spend reviewing each of the basic concepts for each specific class. If you are an instructor who is considering using Math for Business and Life at your school and would like to see the Pre-Quiz questions, send your request to
Student Tutorials, free of charge,
provide a fun way for students to sharpen
their skills. Students select a chapter and
answer questions to see what has sunk in.
Students are given a chance to re-do the
questions they miss and are shown the correct
answer if they ask.
Homework Assignments are provided in two formats: (1) a printed booklet, and (2) an online auto-graded format. The homework questions mirror Chapter Review Problems (found at the end of each chapter); if students are having trouble with a certain homework problem, they can refer to the corresponding Chapter Review Problem and solution. This means less frustration for students and less time required by instructors. Our online auto-graded homework results in less time for instructors. There is a nominal charge to students. Instructors are provided with a summary report for each class.
