10th Birthday Quiz Contest - For Students

Happy birthday to us, presents for you!

It might be our birthday, but the presents are for you—and your students! We didn’t want to leave the students out of the celebration, so each month, when your students take one of our online quizzes (you must set up your classes so they can do this—log in to your account, go to the My Account Page, and click the QUIZZES button. You’ll find a How To video to demonstrate the complete process!) and score a 75% or higher, they’ll be entered to win a pair of Boompod headphones.  

We automatically score the quizzes for you, and your students’ privacy is assured because we will send the prize to you, and you will award it to your student. (We’ll let you know which student won based on how you entered their ID, which is completely up to you. Watch the How To video for details.)

One eligible winner will be randomly selected each month.

The Invisible Hand - New Release

The Invisible Hand isn’t so invisible after all! 

The entire global economy boils down to two people: a buyer and a seller. And the system works best when the seller has the buyer’s best interests at heart. But even if the seller is acting strictly in his own interest, good things happen – we get what we want! 

Over 200 years ago, a Scottish philosopher named Adam Smith came up with revolutionary ideas about how things work. Those ideas are easy to see in the world around us. 

Visit a bakery in Scotland to witness supply and demand, and to learn how businesses know the prices at which they can sell their products and what they should offer customers. Then go to eBay to see the Invisible Hand in action, showing how economic systems can self-regulate without a “Man of Systems” micro-managing every transaction, and how trust and reputation are critical to sellers.
