Publisher Comments:

TLE is designed for learner-focused, computer classroom, lab-based, and distance learning courses. Adopting institutions receive and have license to install all TLE courses on their campus computers, even if they only adopt and have students purchase TLE for one section of one course. The pedagogical model employs a "Guided Inquiry" approach whereby students construct their own understanding of concepts. Instead of passively being fed information, students are actively involved in tasks requiring them to discover or apply mathematical concepts. Brooks/Cole Assessment, the browser-based course management system that supports TLE, allows for the easy creation of algorithmically generated, machine-graded, free-response mathematics practice, quizzes, and tests, giving instructors the power to assess student understanding of skills in a more meaningful way. Because the testing and course management system is browser-based, it can be used on a stand-alone or networked computer, or any computer with Internet access, providing instructors the ability to access course management information such as student progress, time-on-task, and grades, anytime, anywhere. Additionally, students working off campus can access TLE assignments using the Internet anytime. Adopting institutions may use Thomson Learning servers for course management at no additional cost.
