Viswanath**Issues from March 3**-Slow down -Write more clearly on the board -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**• 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. P.V. Viswanath**What we will do, today, March 10**• Effective Annual Rate • Valuation of stock P.V. Viswanath**What we will do March 24**• Finish up Chapter 7 and what we need from Chapter 8. • Make sure you do all the assigned problems. There are not a lot of new concepts, so I will focus on doing problems. P.V. Viswanath**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. P.V.
