Issues from March 3

-Slow down

-A little hurried. I like the examples but they seem rushed 

-Make “revised” PowerPoint lecture notes available earlier than the day of class 

-Why is your lecture is quite different from the book. How can I concentrate on preparing for exams?

- How to calculate growth rates

P.V. Viswanath

Issues to keep in mind
Issues to keep in mind

  • Everything we do in class is related to other things.

  • When we do present value, you cannot forget financial statements

  • Since I want to focus on connections, so sometimes I go ahead. That’s why I went on to the issue of risk.

  • We will revisit things that are not clear; that’s why I solicit your comments.

  • We will certainly revisit statistics – mean, variance, correlation, etc.

Questions from march 10
Questions from March 10

  • Difference between rates

  • How to solve problems by myself

  • When would knowing the effective rate be useful?

  • Post solutions

  • Issues with quiz

    • Only one question

    • Tricky!

    • Why did we do problems just before quiz? Do it a week before quiz.

    • Less time on quiz; more time on problems.
