    How WebAssign for Calculus Can Refresh Algebra & Trigonometry Skills and Improve Conceptual Understanding through Visualization

    4/7/17
    Presented by: Ryan Ahern, Sr. Marketing Manager, Cengage

    What is the most difficult challenge you face when teaching Calculus?

    The most common answer is that it is not necessarily the Calculus that students struggle with most, but rather their understanding of the prerequisite skills.

    Likewise, Calculus itself is a dynamic subject and we routinely hear that its concepts are best understood when presented in a dynamic manner. Although the concepts of Calculus have not changed since the days of Sir Isaac Newton, the technology available to support its teaching continuously evolves.

    We invite you to join this interactive session to learn about the unique features that Cengage delivers through the WebAssign platform to help you resolve the challenges you face in teaching Calculus.

    We look forward to speaking with you soon and to answering any questions that you may have.

    As technology evolves, so do the teaching and learning resources available to help students improve their conceptual understanding of important Precalculus topics.

    We invite you to join this interactive session to learn about the algebra review and innovative dynamic assets that Cengage Learning developed in response to research with Precalculus students that helped inform not only the design of the interactive simulations, but also the appropriate level of instructional support and context.

    We look forward to speaking with you soon and to answering any questions that you may have.
