Unformatted text preview: (Difficulty Levels: Easy, Easy/Medium, Medium, Medium/Hard, and Hard) PART I New and Revised Carryover Problems and Questions Multiple Choice: Problems Notes to Professors: A good bit of relatively simple arithmetic is involved in these problems, and although the calculations are simple, it will take students some time to set up the problem and do the arithmetic. Please allow for this when assigning problems for a timed test. Also, note that students must have memorized a number of definitions to answer some of the questions. You might want to provide students with a list of formulas and definitions for use on the exam. Many of the problems involve situations where a number of steps are required to reach a final solution. We developed some of these problems so that the first problem takes us through the first step, the second one through the second step, and so on until the last of the problems requires students to do all the steps to get to the final point in the process. Obviously, the first of these questions is easiest, and the last one is most difficult. Instructors can decide to use easier or harder ones of these problems. Also, to avoid confusion when the algorithmic process is used to create new versions of the problems, we treat each of these problems completely separately. Finally, note that a number of the problems go into more depth in accounting, and especially managerial accounting, than some professors want to require of students in the introductory finance course. We recommend that you select problems with care, depending on what you emphasize in class. Also, to help students focus on important issues as opposed to memorizing definitions, we recommend that you consider providing students with a list of formulas and definitions for use on the exam.
