Intermediate Algebra is the second part of a two-part course in Algebra. Written in a clear and concise manner, it carefully builds on the basics learned in Elementary Algebra and introduces the more advanced topics required for further study of applications found in most disciplines. Used as a standalone textbook, it offers plenty of review as well as something new to engage the student in each chapter. Written as a blend of the traditional and graphical approaches to the subject, this textbook introduces functions early and stresses the geometry behind the algebra. While CAS independent, a standard scientific calculator will be required and further research using technology is encouraged.
The first alternative explanation for the correlation between connectedness and mobility we consider is reverse causality, whereby greater economic mobility could lead to greater EC. Specifically, in our baseline analysis, we correlated rates of upward income mobility with EC measured among adults. Because friendships and SES are measured in adulthood, economic connectedness may itself be influenced by rates of intergenerational mobility. For example, in places with high upward mobility, many children from low-SES families have high incomes as adults and may retain friendships with individuals who remain at a low SES. This would lead to high-mobility areas having a high rate of friendships among people with different SES in adulthood, even in the absence of any effect of economic connectedness on mobility.
In summary, places with higher levels of EC generate higher levels of economic mobility, even when controlling for the strongest neighbourhood-level predictors of economic mobility identified in prior research. Moreover, the relationships between these other neighbourhood characteristics and mobility become much weaker once we control for EC, which indicates that the links between those factors and mobility may run through their impacts on EC. These findings suggest that other observable neighbourhood characteristics do not explain why higher EC areas generate higher levels of upward mobility, calling for further focus on causal mechanisms through which economic connectedness itself may affect mobility.
13 The teachers of the eighth grade students participating in the NAEP mathematics assessments were asked to complete a teacher questionnaire (see ). Because the sampling for the teacher questionnaires was based on participating students, the responses to a particular teacher questionnaire do not necessarily represent all teachers of that subject at that grade level in the nation. It is important to note that in all NAEP reports, the student is the unit of analysis, even when information from the teacher or school questionnaire is being reported.
MICRO: Intermediate Microeconomics with Microsoft Excel The web site has Excel workbooks and the Comparative Statics add-in for my book (published by Cambridge University Press in 2009). It includes videos of lectures for this course. The second edition, MicroExcel.pdf, is OPEN ACCESS so you may freely read, modify, and use this book and accompanying Excel workbooks to help your students learn economics. 2b1af7f3a8
