North Carolina State University Accounting 210 - Concepts of Financial Reporting Sections 004 - Spring 2011 Instructor: Julie-Anne Moretti, CPA Office: 3113 Nelson Hall Phone: 919-259-6082 E-mail: jam29cpa@nc.rr.com Office Hours: By appointment Class Schedule: Section 004: 6:00 – 7:15 PM Tuesday/Thursday in Nelson 2402 Class MOODLE Page : http://moodle.wolfware.ncsu.edu (login required) Lab MOODLE Page : TBD (login required) CengageNow URL : www.cengage.com/login Course Prerequisites: None. Course Objectives: This course is designed to provide students exposure to financial accounting concepts. The primary focus of the course is on financial reporting concepts, the accounting information generating process, reporting practices, financial statement preparation and the interpretation and analysis of financial statements. The course covers basic accounting principles and concepts, the accounting cycle, income measurement, internal controls and time value of money. Specific chapter objectives are available in a file posted to MOODLE. Course Structure: A traditional lecture format will be utilized throughout the course. We will spend most of time in the lecture going over concepts from the book and other sources. To be effectively engaged in the class you must bring your book, assigned handouts and calculator to EVERY class . In addition to the lecture, you will be participating in lab sessions taught by a graduate student and conducted on a stand-alone basis. The lab sessions will be “hands on” and you will spend time working through specific examples and problems related to the concepts discussed in the lecture. Suggestions for satisfactory progress in this course: The Accounting Department wants all students to have success in the classroom. You will not be able to pass this course only by attending lectures. On average, most students find they need to work on ACC courses at least three hours outside of class for each class hour . Chapters should be read before each lecture class meets . Accounting requires lots of independent learning and studying. Stay current with your assignments. Many of the concepts in this course build on one another. It is essential to stay current. Seek help EARLY if needed. Review the “Learning Objectives” both before and after studying a chapter to make sure you understand the concepts. We don’t necessarily cover everything in every chapter in class!
