Interactive Presentations teach each chapter’s core learning objectives and concepts through an engaging, hands-on presentation, bringing the text content to life. Interactive Presentations harness the full power of technology to truly engage and appeal to all learning styles. Interactive Presentations are ideal in all class formats—online, face to-face or hybrid.
Guided Examples provide narrated and animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises. This allows students to identify, review or reinforce the concepts and activities covered in class. Guided Examples provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.
Applying Excel problems provide students with an opportunity to build their own Excel worksheets and formulas by recreating examples provided in the text, so that they are developing Excel skills in the context of managerial accounting. Students are then asked a series of “what if” questions in which they analyze how and why the related pieces of accounting data affect each other. This feature is integrated into Connect Accounting with algorithmic variables; the Excel spreadsheet can be uploaded by the student and graded by the instructor manually, while the questions that test the validity of their worksheets and the what-if questions are graded automatically.
