Just in Time Syllabus (JITS): This pedagogical approach is said to allow instructors to develop and integrate active learning strategies that will engage students in current economic problems and cases. It encourages students to employ critical thinking skills to analyze and evaluate these resources. Assignments connected with a Just-in-Time Syllabus require student participation in the learning process, not only through reading and writing but also through discussions about what they are learning and the development of collaborative solutions to current cases or problems.
Matrix Multipliers: For readers with a background in matrix algebra, this supplement expands on the concept of the multiplier that is developed in chapter 9.
