Cover key grammar concepts with instructor-written workbook

Do your students think good grammar is important? They might after reading these stats:

  • Passed over for promotions: A study found that employees who didn’t get promoted to director-level positions within 10 years made 2.5 times as many grammatical mistakes as the individuals who did achieve such positions. (Learn more.)
  • Love lost: The online dating site Zoosk polled 9,000 users, and 48% consider bad grammar to be a deal breaker. (Learn more.)

Cover of Foundations of English Grammar WorkbookDevelop critical grammar skills of your English students with the new Foundations of English Grammar Workbook.

Activities, reading passages, and sentence-analysis questions build a strong understanding of topics that range from correcting run-on sentences to spelling commonly confused words. (Affect vs. effect, anyone?)

Written by instructors, the workbook is an excellent resource to complement in-class activities and online lessons available in Foundations of English. It can also be used as a standalone resource.

Strategies for Academic Success In New Editions – Free Download Included

Preparation for College Mathematics and Developmental Mathematics new edition textbooks

The National Student Clearinghouse® Research Center™ studied a cohort of more than 2.2 million degree-seeking students who first started college in fall 2011 (both at 2-year and 4-year institutions in the U.S.). Six years later, 43.1% of that cohort had not completed their degree.*

Oftentimes, low completion rates are due to students not accessing the right resources or having the necessary study skills. Not all students enter your math class adequately prepared to juggle the responsibilities of both the course and their general college experience.

Hawkes wants to set students up for success — that’s why the new editions of Developmental Mathematics and Preparation for College Mathematics offer Strategies for Academic Success, an entire section devoted to preparing students for the challenges they may face and the skills they’ll need to acquire to aid them throughout their academic careers.

View the Strategies for Academic Success here.

The Strategies for Academic Success cover the following:

  1. How to Read a Math Text
  2. Tips for Success in a Math Course
  3. Tips for Improving Math Test Scores
  4. Practice, Patience, and Persistence!
  5. Note Taking
  6. Do I Need a Math Tutor?
  7. Tips for Improving Your Memory
  8. Overcoming Anxiety
  9. Online Resources
  10. Prepare for a Final Math Exam
  11. Managing Your Time Effectively

 

 

Are these skills important to your students’ success? If so, request your exam copy of either Developmental Mathematics or Preparation for College Mathematics today!

Guided Notebook is the perfect supplement to Precalculus courseware

Precalculus Guided Notebook coverWritten by Dr. Chris Schroeder, Morehead State University, the Precalculus Guided Notebook accompanies the Precalculus courseware to emphasize the importance of writing mathematics and taking thorough notes.

View a FREE sample of Precalculus Guided Notebook.

This guided notebook ensures students engage with the content as they follow along throughout the instructional “Learn” mode and videos within the Hawkes courseware.

 

Students develop organizational skills as they are prompted to write down key definitions and concepts, work out similar problems that are shown in accompanying videos at tv.hawkeslearning.com, and solve problems that are similar to what they will encounter in the “Practice” and “Certify” modes.

By the time students are ready to certify, they have the major concepts of each section written down, as well as several worked-out problems in their notebooks that they can use to get through the Certification. In addition, those problems will be useful when reviewing for exams or quizzes.
