I have been teaching math of finance in the college system for more than 25 years. I have been the course lead for the business math courses (MA101 and MA10037) at Mohawk College for the past three years, since moving to the Business Department. During this time, I have been using Vretta’s textbook and online resource for these courses. In the past, I also used resources from McGraw Hill (Jerome and Zima/Brown) and Pearson (Hummelbrunner). My students like Vretta’s resource because of the online capabilities for homework assignments. The textbooks colourful illustrations and layout makes the subject matter less intimidating for the students.
Vretta’s online resources are very flexible. I have customized the content to suit the learning objectives of our courses. Vretta has been very flexible in modifying the resource to conform to our teaching style. The interface of the online resource is intuitive, which has ensured that our students are able to register and utilize the resources effectively.
The ability to customize the resource, gives educators the opportunity to adapt their teaching style. Vretta has always provided excellent support. They are also available for our students on the weekends, which is when our students tend to complete their weekly online homework.
I wish the Vretta team continued success in building products that help students succeed in mathematics.
