    TEXT Intermediate Accounting by E. Gordon, J. Raedy, A. Sannella; Pearson Publishing 2016; ISBN 13: 9780134053714 FASB Codification Access for Students:Login: AAA51914Password: c63hKHRThe website to login is MyAccountingLab MAL is a computer program developed and designed to reinforce the information introduced in the accounting text. You will use the computer program to complete exercises and problems that will give you practice in applying basic accounting principles and procedures. A major advantage of computer-assisted instruction is that you will be provided immediate feedback to your responses and provided with an explanation of the suggested solution to the exercise. ALL assignments (HW) completed on MAL are due by 11:59pm CST on the due date. No late work is accepted!

  • HOMEWORK Homework assignments are to ensure that you are comprehending current material being covered. You should NOT wait until the due date to begin work on the homework! You may work on the homework at different times (the assignment does not have to be completed in one sitting) and you can work/rework each exercise/problem as many times as needed to fully grasp the material up to the due date of the assignment. The homework assignments are a tool to allow you the opportunity for more practice of the concepts in the chapter and those covered in class. Working diligently and fully understanding the homework assignment will be a good first step in preparation for the upcoming exam. You should NOT fully rely on the homework as your only preparation for the exam/assessment(s). (These assignments are located under Do Homework in MAL). EXAMS Exams may be a combination of short answer and/or multiple choice. Exams test your ability to recall the concepts that you have acquired in your readings of the chapters, our class discussions, online lectures and individual research. In addition, exams will require that you be able to not only recall concepts but be able to apply them in accounting situations. Exams will be given during the course as outlined in the Course Calendar on MAL exams are password protected; the password will be given in class just prior to taking each exam. FINAL EXAM The final exam will be administered during the final exam week during the scheduled time for this course. The final exam will be comprehensive and may cover any/all material covered in class, readings for the course, case study information, guest speakers (if any), etc. CASE STUDIES During the semester you will be asked to complete cases. These cases will be real-life scenarios of materials that you have encountered throughout the semester. You will be allowed to work in teams on these case studies. If you choose to work in teams, peer evaluations of your team members will be required for each case study and may affect your individual final grade on the respective case study.

  • NOTE: There are multiple online lectures that I have developed and you are encouraged to utilize those to assist you throughout this course. The online lectures are not exhaustive with regards to coverage of the material and you will not be able to rely solely on the notes from those lectures. You can find them for this course at as well as other potentially helpful materials (lectures from your previous accounting courses: Financial and Managerial, Cost Accounting, etc.). All Assignments in MAL are due by 11:59pm CST on the due date or the last date available unless otherwise stated. You should only email assignments if there is no specific Discussion Board in MAL created for that assignment or if instructed to do so. Any emailed assignment should be in PDF format and in ONE file (i.e. Not multiple files for multiple pages - these should all be merged into one PDF file as with ALL submissions, if I can't open the file it will not be accepted as on time). Any emailed assignments must appear in my email box PRIOR to the beginning of the class it is due or it is considered late and will not be accepted. Please make sure you keep a close eye on your MAL calendar and the course calendar at the end of the syllabus to stay abreast of when things are due! This is YOUR responsibility - NO LATE WORK IS ACCEPTED! METHODS 1. Online video lectures and online/class discussion of text/case material, 2. Application of text material in solving assigned problems/case studies, 3. Collaborative group/team discussions for problem solving GRADES
