Each year you and your students encounter new challenges - in and out of the classroom.  The Cengage team has been hard at work creating new question types and assignments to help you engage your Developmental Math students on a deeper level. 

 

Continue reading to learn more about the new question types available for Development Math and how to assign them in your course.

 

 

Concept Checks

Concept Checks are short, multi-step videos that review key math concepts. Students are required to answer a question after each video to ensure their understanding of each concept. 

 

Concept Checks are a great way to kick off assignments to remind students of key topics. They provide a useful way to help students confirm their understanding.

 

How To Add Them: To add Concept Checks to your course, use the Question Browser and look for questions ending with “.CC”.  Alternatively, reach out to your local sales team for assistance.
