Use of Technology in the Classroom The inappropriate use of electronic devices during class is disrespectful and distracting to those around you. Cell phones should be on silent or turned off, and they should be completely put away during class. Students are allowed to use laptops and tablets during class to access textbook materials and to take notes. However, students who use technology for social media, games, browsing, or other non-class-related purposes will forfeit that privilege for the remainder of the semester in addition to losing points on their professionalism score (discussed below). Programmable calculators and/or cell phone calculators are not allowed to be used during any assessments Course Objectives and Policies Accounting is often referred to as the language of business. The objective of this course is to develop an understanding of financial accounting and reporting issues and their impact on business decisions. Although students should be able to prepare basic financial statements upon successful completion of the course, a user/decision-maker perspective will also be emphasized. Further, the importance of integrity and ethical behavior in financial reporting will be discussed throughout the course. The financial statements and reports of publicly traded corporations will be examined as part of a practice-oriented focus of the course.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
