Think of it as portable office hours! AUTOMATICALLY PACKAGED WITH THE TEXT, the Interactive Video Skillbuilder CD-ROM contains more than eight hours of video instruction. The problems worked during each video lesson are shown on the viewing screen so that students can try working them before watching the solution. To help students evaluate their progress, each section contains a 10-question Web quiz (the results of which can be emailed to the instructor) and each chapter contains a chapter test, with the answer to each problem on each test. This CD-ROM also includes MathCue tutorial and quizzing software, featuring a Skill Builder that presents problems to solve and evaluates answers with…
