Course Prerequisite Principles of Financial Accounting -101 Required Course Materials Managerial Accounting, 1e, by Bamber, Braun and Harrison (GREEN COVER) Some student material (including: quizzes, chapter overviews, power point slides, etc.) is available FREE on-line at www.prenhall.com/bamber . You may also want to purchase a companion study guide at mypearsonstore.com (ISBN #978-0-13812980-4). You should also buy a 3-ring binder to keep your lecture packets organized. Bring your current lecture packet, a calculator, and a pen or pencil to class with you every day. Course Objectives and Content The objective of this course is to introduce you to basic managerial accounting terminology, concepts and practices. Since businesses vary in their accounting information needs, their specific managerial accounting systems will vary, too. However, this course will introduce you to the most commonly used concepts and practices so that you will be able to effectively use managerial accounting information in your future careers. This course will focus on 5 broad themes: 1) Understanding managerial accounting and its terminology (the building blocks) 2) Product costing systems (How much does it cost to make one unit of our product/or service?) 3) Understanding, estimating, and using cost behavior to guide management decisions 4) Financial planning (budgeting) 5) Performance evaluation (Are subunits of the company performing up to expectations?) Blackboard I will be using Blackboard extensively for this course. I will post announcements, daily readings, daily homework assignments, homework solutions, and copies of class handouts on Blackboard. I will also be posting your exam scores, etc., to Blackboard’s on-line gradebook. Plan to check Blackboard daily. 1
