Using intuition, a conversational writing style, everyday examples and outstanding graphs to present microeconomic theory as a way of looking at the world, MICROECONOMICS: AN INTUITIVE APPROACH sets a new standard for clarity in the course and requires no prior background in calculus. It builds on the foundation of individual behavior, showing students the big picture of economic intuition while developing conceptual thinking skills with carefully written analysis. The first chapters establish a set of tools based on utility functions, so students learn about supply and demand in context, with a solid understanding of the underpinnings of those concepts. The package offers unprecedented flexibility in terms of topical coverage and graphical analysis. Each new copy of the text also includes access to a premium website featuring Nechyba's LiveGraphs a suite of interactive, animated graphs that allows students to view dimensional graphs and functions illustrated in the book, as well as some additional graphs that are not in the printed text. Students can play and replay the LiveGraphs while listening to a brief explanation of the graphs.
