Created and tested by a multi-institution consortium with funding from the US National Science Foundation, this site offers Economics students "Math you need, when you need it." Each topic has explanatory text with examples, plus self-test questions and an instructor page with learning objectives and further links. The site has an online assessment tool, iMath, which course leaders can use to conduct online tests. There are five topics as of Summer 2014, with many more in development.

WinEcon is an interactive learning software package for economics, business economics, maths for economics and the range of Sloman textbooks designed to support economics courses. The software provides many hours of tutorial material and includes: all the relevant theory, interactive exercises, self-assessment questions, economics databases and an economic glossary. Teachers of economics can integrate WinEcon into their Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) by creating links from any Web page, Word, Powerpoint or Excel document to specific WinEcon topics. Students working on their own machines can also make full use of these features to link to specific WinEcon screens from their lecturer's Web pages by installing the single user software.
