Vretta’s Mathematics of Business and Finance blended resource has been the standout learning tool for our students at Seneca College. The online lessons and labs are tools for the modern world. They have great appeal for our students. We have found that students’ participation in the course increased significantly since we began using these resources. As a result, more students than ever have been completing their homework assignments.
The exciting approach to teaching mathematics in the online lessons, which are animated and highly interactive, makes studying seem less like work, and more like a fun learning activity. Students have not only been completing their lessons, but reviewing them several times before their tests. The results speak for themselves. This increased participation was reflected in the students’ performance in tests, mid-term exams and the final exam. A great feature of the textbook is the way it explains the use of the calculator to solve problems. It presents step-by- step instructions to solve all of the problems where the use of the financial calculator is relevant.
