The integrated solutions for Colander's Ecomics 9e have been specifically designed to help today's students succeed in the principles of ecomics course. Colander's trademark colloquial approach focuses on modern ecomics, institutions, history, and modeling, and is organized around learning objectives to make it easier for students to understand the material and for instructors to build assignments within Connect. McGraw-Hill's adaptive learning component, LearnSmart, provides assignable modules that help students master core topics. Significant improvements in pedagogy such as reworked end-of-chapter problems, seamless integration within the Connect eBook, and instant feedback on assignments will engage students in the ninth edition like never before and instill the ecomic sensibility necessary to apply ecomic concepts to the real world. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

In their spare time, the Colanders designed and built an oak post-and-beam house on a ridge overlooking the Green Mountains to the east and the Adirondacks to the west. The house is located on the site of a former drive-in movie theater. (They replaced the speaker poles with fruit trees and used the I-beams from the screen as support for the second story of the carriage house and the garage.) They now live in both Florida and Vermont.
