Project 2

This project has two goals. First, the project is designed to teach you the fundamentals of time value of money. Secondly, the project is designed to familiarize the student with the operation of their financial calculator. As indicated on the syllabus, the HP 10B calculator is highly recommended. If you choose to use and other financial calculator, please show the calculator to the instructor for his approval.

Instruction for this project is primary through an extensive HP 10B calculator tutorial is available on the course web site.  However, if you are having any difficulty, you should contact me as soon as possible to make an appointment to be tutored.  You are required for this project to complete the entire tutorial even if you do not use the HP 10B calculator. You’ll find that most of the material will also be relevant to whatever financial calculator you may choose.

This project should be begun early in the course. There will be several project submissions prior to the end of the class. If you began working on this early, you’ll have no trouble completing the material by the end of the course. Below is a table indicating the relevant topics to be covered in the time value money tutorial along with the corresponding project submission.  The project submissions shown are to help you prepare but the actual submission should be made through the http://online.clarion.edu  site.  You will need to connect to the internet, go to the site, and log on to the RE 270 course site.  The assignments are located at the assignments tab under Time-value-of-Money assignments.  Also included are the dates you should have completed the material.
