Accordingly, the expected student outcome is the demonstration that the student can read, analyze and interpret external financial statements. Prerequisite is Acct 1A. Required Text and Materials: Accounting 1B with CengageNOW (26 th edition) by Warren, Reeve, and Duchac, published by Cengage Cengage Now Registration ( ) Course Key: E-Y84E3NZPRRBEZ Basic or scientific calculator, cannot use cell phone or tablet Course Format: The course will be made up of lecture, illustrations, homework, problems, and take-home projects – all of which are intended to reinforce your reading of the chapters covered during that specific class period. Quizzes, tests, homework, and projects will assess your comprehension of the material. Class participation is critical to your success in learning the concepts covered. Student Learning Outcomes (SLO’s) 1. Demonstrate a knowledge of the users of accounting information and forms of business ownership, risks and capitalization of each and prepare, analyze and evaluate the financial structure of a firm using corporate financial statements (and include the statement of cash flows). 2. Analyze and evaluate the capitalization of a firm using debt and equity and apply net present value methodology to the analysis.
Course Expectations: I expect you to read the relevant pages of the textbook before coming to class, attend regularly, and actively participate. The course covers quite a bit of material, not all of which will be reviewed during class. The lectures and presentations are designed to build upon your preparation, not to replace it. Students will be called upon during class to answer questions. Course Requirements: Quizzes There will be weekly quizzes that focus on your comprehension of the material presented in the text we are covering that week and reinforced during class discussions. The day of the week that the quiz is given will not be announced ahead of time; i.e., it could be any day the class meets. Each quiz is worth 10 points for a total of 80 points, however only the best 5 quiz scores will be recorded and thus the max quiz score is 50 points. If you miss a quiz for any reason , you cannot make it up; it will instead be one of the three quizzes that gets dropped.
