This class requires you to mathematically solve several financial management problems using simple algebra.  The book has step-by-step explanations and examples.  Two comments about math:

 

     1)  Starting with Assignment 1 you are going to need to manipulate numbers and in many cases submit an MS Excel spreadsheet.  In most cases you will also need to submit a short paper about some decision you are recommending.  Treat your papers as if you are writing to a "math phobic" boss, e.g., explain what the math means when reaching you recommendation.

 

2)      Starting with Week 2 the discussion questions have math problems embedded.  I know it may be difficult to "discuss" arithmetic, but are a graduate student.  So get creative and get some reasonable 200-word posts in the Dqs.
