At any given point in time during the upcoming semester, you can ensure that you are on track with Finance 4335 assignments by monitoring due dates which are published on the course website. See http://fin4335.garven.com/readings/ for due dates pertaining to reading assignments, and http://fin4335.garven.com/problem-sets/ for due dates pertaining to problem sets. Also keep in mind that short quizzes will be administered in class on each of the dates indicated for required readings. As a case in point, since the required readings entitled “Optimization” and ” How long does it take to double (triple/quadruple/n-tuple) your money?” are listed for Thursday, August 23, this means that a quiz based upon these readings will be given in class on that day.
Important assignments due on the second class meeting of Finance 4335 (scheduled for Thursday, August 23) include: 1) filling out and emailing the student information form as a file attachment to email@example.com, 2) subscribing to the Wall Street Journal, and 3) subscribing to the course blog. A completed student information form is graded as a problem set and receives 100 points; if you fail to turn in a student information form, then you will receive a 0 for this “problem set”. Furthermore, tasks 2 and 3 listed above count toward your class participation grade in Finance 4335.
Regarding the student information form, I prefer that you complete this form (by either typing or writing) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the beginning of class on Thursday. However, if you prefer, you may turn in a hard copy instead at the beginning of class on Thursday.
