Business Finance 640 Syllabus / Autumn 2011 Page 2 Required Calculator You will need a calculator for this course. We recommend either the HP-12C or the TI BA-II PLUS . Both are excellent financial calculators with easy-to-use pre- programmed financial functions. Guidebooks for these calculators are posted on the course website. If you are planning to major in finance or a related field (like risk management or actuarial science), you should own a financial calculator. IMPORTANT: If you have a scientific (or statistical) calculator, please check the user’s manual to make sure it can perform time-value-of-money operations. We assume you are a proficient user of your calculator (that is, you can use your calculator for any computational task in this course without assistance). Lecture Materials
