Student Learning Outcome (SLO) 1. Identify elements of cost for a business and explain and analyze how costs are allocated and assessed for various users.

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 90 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 four quizzes that gets dropped. You will be assigned a group that you can discuss the answers with before turning in your quiz. Exams During the quarter, there will be 4 exams – three mid-terms and a final. The first midterm covers chapters 18-20, the second midterm covers chapters 21-23, the third midterm covers chapters 24- 26, and the final exam is comprehensive. I will drop your lowest midterm grade. Exams cannot be rescheduled for any reason. Projects There are two projects that you will need to complete during the quarter. The projects are very extensive, involving quite a bit of material spanning multiple chapters. You should begin them early. The first project is an individual assignment based on one of the comprehensive problems in the textbook that will be completed via CengageNow.

The individual project involving the comprehensive problem must be submitted by 8pm on the due date. Late submissions are not allowed. The second project is a group project. You will be
