The most modern and authoritative text—now with online homework

From Google’s chief economist, Varian’s best-selling intermediate microeconomics texts are revered as some of the best in the field. And now students can work problems online with Smartwork5, Norton’s online homework system, packaged at no additional charge with the Media Update Editions. In addition to online homework, the texts now include four-color graphs and new interactive animations.


The problem-solving approach you trust—now online

Intermediate Microeconomics is a foundational course where students begin to develop the analytical and problem-solving skills they’ll use in the rest of their studies and career. Smartwork5 for practice and assessment has been designed to support and develop this critical skill by including both homework and adapted, multi-step “Workout” problems—including graphing problems—and is easy for students and instructors to use. Smartwork5 is included with the purchase of any Media Update Edition.

Cutting-edge text content by a trail-blazing economist

Now chief economist at Google, Hal Varian has taken part in the economic revolution sparked by new forms of technology and commerce. Used by well over a million students since its publication, Varian’s texts stay on the cutting-edge by incorporating thorough coverage of contemporary topics.

New Graphing Interactives, full-color figures, and PowerPoints enhance your course

Students often need additional support to understand and apply concepts such as production possibilities frontier, Edgeworth boxes, supply, demand, competition, and cost minimization. Graphing Interactives allow students to manipulate various factors that change results in the graph with accompanying explanations, enhancing their learning, which they can then apply to problems in Smartwork5.

All graphs and figures in the Media Update have been updated in consistent, full-color formats. All figures and Graphing Interactives meet accessibility guidelines.
