Lecture notes
The 10th ed. of textbook added a new section 21.3 Effective Rate and APY. This material was included in section 21.2 Geometric Growth and Compound Interest of the 9th ed. and all material is coverd in 21.2 videos and lecture notes. The 10th ed. of the textbook split the material on Present Value between sections 21.5 10th ed. A Model for Savings and 21.6 10th ed. Inflation. This material is coverd in 21.5 videos and lecture notes.

Chapter 21 Objectives (Skills)

• Apply the simple interest formula to calculate the balance of a savings account.
• Apply the compound interest formula to calculate the balance of a savings account.
• Describe the difference between arithmetic and geometric growth.
• Calculate the APY for a compound interest account.
• Calculate the APY for a compound interest account.
• Use the savings formula or payment formula to determine required deposits into a sinking fund.
• Calculate depreciation of a financial asset, given a negative growth rate.
• Use the Consumer Price Index to find the current cost of goods.

Quiz 6 Chapter 21 (Sakai-> Tests & Quizzes)

• The quiz for Chapter 21 will be available from 11:00am Jan. 17 - 11:00am Jan. 19.
• The quiz will consist of 10 multiple choice questions.
• You will have a maximum of four hours to complete the quiz.
• You will be allow two tries. The computer will accept the best score.
• Failure to take the quiz by 11:00am Jan. 19 will be given a zero. No exceptions!

Homework Assignments

The 9th or 10th edition of the textbook can be used for this course. All material covered is the same and independent of textbook editions. Homework problems between editions are the same. The homework assignments must be neatly prepared and handed in by 11:00am in class on the due date. We will spend class time doing homework problems. I will provide helpful suggestions, do similar problems, and give hints on all homework. Please do not ask to submit late homework. I will not accept them! I will not accept homework without worked out problems. Homework assignments with answers only will be given a zero. You must show the work for credit. You should do a similar odd problem to make sure you understand the homework. Each homework problem (or answer) is worth 1. Problems with multiple parts (or require multiple answers), will have each part (or answer) worth 1. Each homework assignment is worth 10 points. For example, if an assignments has 18 problems (counting multiple parts e.g. 3a, 3b, 3c 3d would count as 4 problems or if a problem requires 2 answers that would count as 2) and you miss 2 problems, your homework score is 16/18 = 8.9 points.

• Due by 11:00 am Friday Jan. 19

 9th ed. 3, 11, 13, 25, 26, 40, 53, 54, 55, 56 pages 795 - 800 10th ed. 3, 6, 21, 31, 32, 46, 59, 60, 61, 62 pages 899 - 904

Chapter worksheets (In-class)

The worksheets are designed to help you understand material and are aligned with the Learning Outcomes to provide practice and feedback. All students are expected to watch and take notes on the videos of the chapters before class. This is a flipped classroom (i.e. part online and part in classroom). There will be NO in class lectures! In class, we will work on homework problems, briefly discuss topics, interact with each other, and do the in class worksheets. Each worksheet will have 15 questions each worth 1 point (partial credit is possible). Worksheets with answers only will be given a zero. You must show the work for credit. Failure to watch the chapter videos and take notes, will make the worksheets very difficult for you. No make-ups allowed. Do not ask to submit late worksheets.
