On September 24 and September 29, we’ll focus our attention on the first midterm exam in Finance 4335. Class on Thursday, September 24 will be devoted to a review session for the exam, and the exam will be administered during class on Tuesday, September 29.
Great advice from today’s WSJ, which applies to school as well as work! “Limit surfing online, define your workspace, and schedule breaks to help keep your concentration during remote work, experts say.”
Since many of the topics covered in Finance 4335 require a basic knowledge and comfort level with algebra, differential calculus, and probability & statistics, the second class meeting during the Spring 2020 semester will include a mathematics tutorial, and the third and fourth class meetings will cover probability & statistics. I know of no better online resource for brushing up on (or learning for the first time) these topics than the Khan Academy.
So here are my suggestions for Khan Academy videos which cover these topics (unless otherwise noted, all sections included in the links which follow are recommended):
