The issues addressed and analytical tools taught are practical in application. Each student is encouraged to adopt the role of a business manager confronted with a real-life situation. The student will learn how to apply management accounting tools to accounting data. Students will use the tools to address issues and make appropriate and applicable decisions. While the text literature and many of the problems focus on a manufacturing setting, the concepts are applicable to all enterprises. An attempt has been made to introduce as many service industry examples as possible. The emphasis in this course is on learner centredness, in accordance with the University's Mission Statement, and as such, there is a significant element of self-teaching involved. The time commitment will be commensurate to other types of courses but the benefit to students working on the problem components outweighs the time commitment. CLASS WORK: Class time will be spent predominately on end-of chapter problems. It is assumed that each student will come to class prepared, having read all the assigned material before class and having attempted all of the assigned problems each week. Should you need to miss a class e.g., for religious purposes, please advise the instructor in advance. EXTRA PROBLEMS: In addition to the in-class problems, a list of extra problems will be provided and the solutions to these problems will be posted on courselink. These problems will be similar to the ones taken up in class and make excellent review problems. They are there to provide extra practice. As a students father once said, You dont read accounting, you do accounting. In other words, for most people it comes down to practice, practice, practice. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION Quizzes 10% Mid-term Exam #1 (Tuesday Feb. 4 in class) 25% Mid-term Exam #2 (Tuesday Mar. 18 in class) 25% Final Exam 40% Total 100% </p></li><li><p>ACCT 3230 Intermediate Management Accounting Winter 2014 ~ 3 ~ </p><p>QUIZZES: (10%) The purpose of the quizzes is to help students increase their understanding of the material in the course and to improve their success on the midterms and final exam. They will be a combination of both qualitative and quantitative material from the course. In-Class Quizzes (6%): </p><p>There will be 3 in-class quizzes (one before each midterm and one before the final exam). The quizzes are worth 2% each for a total of 6% of students final grade. The quizzes will be held at the beginning of class on Jan 23, March 6, and March 27. Students must write the quizzes in the section they are registered in. If a student misses Quiz 1, then the weight of the quiz will be added to Midterm 1. If a student misses Quiz 2, then the weight of the quiz will be added to Midterm 2. If a student misses Quiz 3 the weight of the quiz will be added to the Final Exam. </p><p> On-Line Quizzes (4%): </p><p>There will be four online quizzes available through MyAccounting Lab. A separate account must be purchased by students in order to use MyAccountingLab. Each quiz is worth 1% of the final grade and the 1% is assigned based on completing the quiz (not based on the number of questions answered correctly). The quizzes are open until the last day of classes and there is no time limit on the on-line quizzes. Questions on these quizzes will be similar to the problems done in class and/or assigned as extra problems. The Government of Ontario requires Universities to provide a no-extra-cost option for obtaining a course credit. Students who do not wish to pay for the MyAccountingLab subscription will have the weight reallocated equally over the In-Class quizzes. This option will cause quizzes 1, 2 &amp; 3 to be re-weighted to 3.3%, 3.3% and 3.4% respectively. To exercise this option, you must notify your professor via e-mail no later than January 16, 2014. </p><p>MID-TERM EXAMS (2 worth 25% each): There will be two midterm exams held in class. Midterm 1 is in class on Tuesday February 4th and Midterm 2 is in class on Tuesday March 18th. Students must write the midterm in the class time they are registered. Further details regarding the midterms will be posted on courselink. The mid-term will be a combination of both qualitative and quantitative material from the course. FINAL EXAM (40%): The examination time is set by the Registrar. The exam is on Thursday April 10, 2:30pm-4:30pm. It is the students responsibility to resolve time conflicts. The examination may encompass any material covered during the semester and will be a combination of both qualitative and quantitative material from the course. </p></li><li><p>ACCT 3230 Intermediate Management Accounting Winter 2014 ~ 4 ~ </p></li><li><p>ACCT 3230 Intermediate Management Accounting Winter 2014 ~ 5 ~ </p><p>COURSE SCHEDULE </p><p>The attached schedule may require modification from time to time.

The University of Guelph takes a serious view of academic misconduct and it is your responsibility as a student to be aware of and to abide by the Universitys policy. Included in the definition of academic misconduct are such activities as cheating on examinations, plagiarism, misrepresentation, and submitting the same material in two different courses without written permission. To better understand your responsibilities, read the Undergraduate Calendar at: You are also advised to make use of the resources available through the Learning Commons ( and to discuss any questions you may have with your course instructor, teaching assistant, Academic Advisor or Academic Counselor. Students should be aware that faculty have the right to use software to aid in the detection of plagiarism or copying and to examine students orally on submitted work. For students found guilty of academic misconduct, serious penalties, up to and including suspension or expulsion from the University can be imposed. Academic Consideration: Students who find themselves unable to meet course requirements by the deadline or criteria expected because of medical, psychological or compassionate circumstances beyond their control, should review the regulations on Academic Consideration in the Undergraduate Calendar ( and discuss their situation with the instructor, Program Counsellor or Academic Advisor as appropriate. Documentation supporting requests for academic consideration for final course work or final exams based on medical, psychological or compassionate grounds must be submitted to your program counsellor within five (5) working days of the missed exam or course work deadline. In addition, approved deferred privileges must be completed within the semester immediately following the semester in which the exam/course work was originally missed.
