When you buy a new copy of Essentials Version, you’re not just getting a text, you’re getting access to a complete package of online active learning resources—resources designed to help you build confidence in mathematics. When purchased separately these resources would cost you $20, but they’re yours for FREE when you buy a new copy of the text!
Here’s what you get:
The Essential Version eManipulatives offer you the convenience of an online resource. These virtual Manipulatives are similar to physical manipulatives frequently used to teach mathematics (for elementary through secondary) and for pre-service students. They are designed to develop key mathematical concepts by allowing you to actively work with virtual manipulatives such as the geoboard, base ten blocks, black and red chips, pattern blocks, and other tools.
Spreadsheet Activities and Tutorial
