Homework

Finance 300 includes weekly online homework. Students are encouraged to practice the homework questions daily and make progress incrementally. There is no limit to the number of practice sessions during the week and there is no grade assigned for practice sessions. Homework grade is earned by completing one proctored 15-minute homework test by the end of the week.

  • Practice Homework
    • Homework is accessed through GRT
    • Homework is weekly. Each weekly session opens Saturday at 6am and closes Friday at 1pm.
    • There is no limit to the number of times you can do the practice sessions.
    • Practice sessions are graded so that you can see which questions you answered correctly, but the grades are not included in your course grade.
  • Graded Homework
    • Proctored homework sessions will be held in the Learning Lab (36 Wohlers Hall)
      • Tuesdays (4pm-5pm)
      • Wednesdays (4pm-5pm)
      • Thursdays (2pm-5pm) and
      • Fridays (9am-5pm).
    • Students must present valid University identification, register, and have the proctor validate their homework session.
    • There is only one proctored, graded, homework session per student per week. There are no make-ups, no conflicts.
    • The graded homework session is pulled from the same test bank as the practice homwework for the same week.
    • The lowest homework score will be dropped from your grade calculation.
    • Graded Homework is due on the dates and times given in the Homework Calendar.
    • Note that the lab closes at 5:00pm. This means that you must begin the homework by 4:45pm at the very latest in order to use the full 15 minutes allocated. Accordingly, entrance to the lab will be closed at 4:45pm.

A note on rounding

The GRT computer rounds according to Banker's rounding rules. The rounded off part of the number is always less than half the precision, but when the rounded off part is exactly half of the precision then round to the even number. So

$1.875001 rounds up to $1.88
$1.875000 rounds up to $1.88 because 8 is an even number
$1.874999 rounds down to $1.87
and

$1.865001 rounds up to $1.87
$1.865000 rounds down to $1.86 because 6 is an even number
$1.864999 rounds down to $1.86
