Fundamentals of Corporate Finance by Ross, Westerfield and Jordan, 7th Edition. A financial calculator is not required for this course, but is highly recommended for problems and exams. I will work with students on using the TI BA II PLUS. It should help with homework and exam problems.

Exams will be multiple choices. Bring a calculator, scantron and pencil with you to each exam. Formula sheets (Appendix B) and time value tables (Appendix A) will be provided. Financial calculators are permitted. No makeup exams will be given. If you miss one of the first two exams due to an emergency your final will count for 65% of your semester grade, provided you make arrangements with me prior to missing the exam. Final exam is comprehensive and you must attend it to receive a passing grade in this class. Participation includes assignments, attendance and short quizzes and will count for 10% of your total semester grade. There will be a quiz at the beginning of each class over the material covered in the previous section. If you miss a class it is your responsibility to get your assignment turned in on time and makeup what you missed. It is also your responsibility to sign the class roll which will be passed dur ing each class meeting.

NOTICE OF POLICY OF CHEATING: Policy on Cheating: Students are expected to be above reproach in all scholastic activities. Students who engage in scholastic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the course and dismissal from the university. “Scholastic dishonesty includes but not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts.” Regents’ Rules and Regulations, Part One, Chapter VI, Section 3, Subsection 3.2, Subdivision 3.22.

End-of chapter problems: Even though links to end-of-chapter problems solutions will be available on my webpage, it is strongly recommended that you work them yourself first. These problems are not to be turned in, but the more problems you work the better understanding of the material you will gain.
