For courses in Principles of Microeconomics. An evidence-based approach to economics Throughout Microeconomics, 2nd Edition, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help students learn about the world around them. Taking a fresh approach, they use the themes of optimization, equilibrium, and empiricism to not only illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, but also to explain and predict what's happening in today's society. Each chapter begins with an empirical question that is relevant to the life of a student, and is later answered using data in the Evidence-Based Economics feature. As a result of the text's practical emphasis, students will learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions they make in their own lives.

A clear and student-friendly introduction to the fundamentals of Python
In Starting Out with Python, 4th Edition, Tony Gaddis’ accessible coverage introduces students to the basics of programming in a high-level language. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows readers to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to recognise the logic behind developing high-quality programs.
Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, focused explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. Updates to the 4th Edition include revised, improved problems throughout, and new Turtle Graphics sections that provide flexibility as assignable, optional material.
Finite Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences, 14th Edition offers more built-in guidance than any other text for this course — with special emphasis on applications and prerequisite skills — and a host of student-friendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own.
