- LaunchPad Units that provide the ability to build a course in minutes. LaunchPad offers selected resources compiled into ready-to-use teaching units, complete with problem sets, activities, e-Book
sections, and state-of-the-art online homework and testing. Instructors can quickly set up their course using precreated LaunchPad units for each chapter. They can also enhance LaunchPad units or create
their own original assignments, adding selections from our extensive resource library of questions and activities, and their own materials as well.

student follows a unique path to understanding the material. The more questions a student answers correctly, the more difficult the questions become. Each question is written specifically for the text and
is linked to the relevant e-Book section. LearningCurve also provides a personal study plan for students as well as complete metrics for instructors. Proven to raise student performance, LearningCurve serves as an ideal formative assessment and learning tool. For detailed information, visit
