Index

The 10th edition retains many of the popular features of the previous edition:

· An even micro/macro split.

· A wealth of applied material, with over 177 boxes, relating economics to the real world.

· An open learning approach, with questions incorporated into the text so as to test and reinforce students’ understanding as they progress. This makes learning a much more active process.

· End-of-chapter questions with answers on the Companion Website

· All economic terms highlighted in the text where they first appear and defined at the foot of that page. Each term is also highlighted in the index, so that the student can simply look up a given definition as required.

· 40 Key Ideas and 15 Threshold Concepts are highlighted throughout the book and explained when they first appear.

· Extensive use of data, with links in the online version to general data sources and individual datasets, with many opportunities for students to explore data to help them reflect on policy choices.

· Chapter maps at the beginning of each chapter help students to see how the chapter is structured and how the various topics relate to each other.

· Starred sections and boxes contain more advanced material allowing the book to be used by students with different abilities and experience, and on courses of different levels of difficulty.

· ‘Looking at the maths’ sections express a topic mathematically and support those on more quantitatively-focused courses.

· A companion website and MyLab Economics support the text with extra case studies, audio animations, maths cases, answers to all the questions in the text and link to the frequently-updated Sloman Economics News site for students as well as a full package of teaching and learning resources, assessment and lecturer materials for lecturers.
