Hi, and welcome to the slide presentations for Introduction to Business. There is a set of slides for each of the eleven chapters that we will cover. There is another slide set with sound that you should also check out. These slides that you’re viewing here are the slides that I usually use when conducting a live face to face class. If all 40 of us were all together in a traditional classroom, we’d go through each of these sets of slides one at a time and have a discussion and answer questions about nearly all of these topics presented here. In our course, we won’t get to do that, at least the online section won’t. The blended section will meet roughly every other week to have some discussions of all of this, but not much. Since we can’t talk about this all together, it’s important for you to go though all of the slides and imagine how a class discussion might go. And then if you do have questions, comments, or would like to discuss some of these topics, please post your question or comment in the chapter discussion topic for this chapter. I won’t ignore you, and neither will your classmates.
