Dear Student,

Whew!  We are working on/ have completed Chapter 5, and have even gotten a start on extra credit problems this week.  Congratulations to all of you!

Just as a reminder - if you want to take this course Pass/No Pass (that means no letter grade...69.5 points = Pass, below 69.5 points = No Pass), then the deadline to do that online is Monday, September 26th.  Please consult a counsellor before you make that decision.

Here is the list of upcoming assignments:

--Chapter 2 homework. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept 25 11pm.

--Chapter 3 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Sept 25 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Oct 2 11pm.

--Chapter 4 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Oct 2 11pm.  Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Oct 9 11pm.

--Chapter 3-4 quiz. Due Date: Sunday, Oct 2 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 5 homework. Due Date: Sunday Oct 9 11pm. Grace period ends Sun Oct 16 11pm.

--If, for any reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. The first assignment is due less than a week from now. All assignments (homework, quizzes are available for you to work 3 weeks ahead of time at a minimum. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

--If you lose any points, you can make them up by doing problems in the Extra Credit Problem set. It is a selection of 20 problems in chapter order, and it is available now to work on. The Extra Credit Problem set functions like homework (not-timed, unlimited submission, Question Help and Check Answer features). Incomplete or wrong answers cannot hurt you, as only correct answers result in points earned. Do as little or as much of it as you like. It is not due until the end of the semester. We will try to do these in class and there will be a class designated for Extra Credit help at the end of the semester.

--We will do some Extra Credit problems in class this upcoming week.

Some helpful suggestions:

--Make friends with your classmates. Sit together, talk together, and work on homework problems together while in class. I like a fair amount of chatter in the class. Exchange phone numbers and emails. I encourage you to help and be helped by your classmates.

--Remember that you can attend either section of my Financial Accounting classes whenever you want - no need to email me to ask permission. I teach this class at the Indian Valley campus of College of Marin in Building 27, Room 118 on Mon/Wed nights 6:10-8pm, and also teach the very same class at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin in AC 240 on Saturdays from 9:10-1pm. Not sure what we are covering at each campus? Look at Syllabi on this website, and check out what we are covering each class date.

--I am here to help you SUCCEED in accounting. Please email me if you have any questions or problems, and I will get right back to you (usually within a day). I also have office hours (See Office / Class Hours on this website) in which we can work on problems together, or I can help you with understanding the theory and language of accounting. Don't be shy!


----If you are buying the book at the bookstore, be very careful to select the correct bundle (looseleaf textbook and access code) at the bookstore. Look for my name on the shelf tag, and make sure that you have the book that says"The Financial Chapters" as a subtitle. If you have bought the book/access card at the bookstore, register with the My Accounting Lab online program using your access code now. The link to registering is at Links on this website, or you can simply type in your toolbar: myaccountinglab.com Don't throw away the Access Code card that comes packaged with the textbook in a separate sealed enclosure. You will need the code to register. You will also need the course id: forsyth09273. Finally, if you need any help in starting, registering, or navigating My Accounting Lab, look at Links on this website for helpful videos and the student guide.

--If you haven't bought the book/access code yet, you can still register on MyAccountingLab and read the e-text, take the quizzes, and do the homework. You may access the system for a free 14 day trial period. You will see that option when you register (using the steps above). If you are ready to buy the ebook/access code directly from the publisher, the publisher sells it for $120 (much cheaper than the bookstore). You will see that purchase option when you register for MyAccountingLab. If you already have a copy of the textbook (either renting it, purchasing it on Amazon (4th edition is also ok), you can buy the $65 access card from the publisher when you register.

--To keep up with the reading (if your textbook has not yet arrived), please use the e-book that is available at My Accounting Lab. It is located on your MyAccountingLab menu under Pearson etext. No time to read the text? Review the Power Point slides for each chapter available at MyAccountingLab, Multimedia Library.

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using My Accounting Lab online program. This means that you need to have access to a computer, an email, and an Internet connection to do your work. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe and Library in Bldg 27, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students access to computers and Internet. Both classrooms (Bldg 27, Room 118, and AC240) also have Internet access.

--We do the homework in class. Whenever possible, we also work on the extra credit. To that end, bring your laptop/tablet to access My Accounting Lab in class (which has an internet connection). Smart phones may/may not work.

If you prefer working with paper (or don't want to bring laptop), print out your homework from the My Accounting Lab program and bring it to class. To print out a chapter's homework, enter into the homework, enter any answer to any problem, select check answer. This stops any algorithmic changes. Then select Question Help, Print, and select Print Homework

Assignment.

--All homework, extra credit and quizzes are open-book, open-note. Use all your materials to help you succeed.

Some other reminders:

--The College requires instructors to drop students not "significantly participating" in the class. Please note (see FAQ on this website) that students must complete Chapter 1 homework and take Chapter 1-2 quiz by their due dates to be considered as significantly participating in the class. If you do not, you may be dropped from the class.

--I am told that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work best with MyAccounting Lab online.

--I encourage you to use "Question Help" at the top right of your screen when you are doing a homework problem in My Accounting Lab. There you will find help in answering that specific question, such as Demo Docs, videos, the etext pages covering that problem, and also Ask My Instructor. If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with the problem you are working on along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within 24 hours.

--While working on your quiz in My Accounting Lab online, don't SUBMIT QUIZ unless you want it to count as your only allowed submission. Simply x (or leave) the page. Your answers will still be there when you resume. However, when it's time for you to submit your quiz for grading, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ.

- To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results. Look at Overall Score. For example you might see: You have earned 6.2 points out of 8 points for an overall score of 77.14%. It is the 6.2 points that are the total points that have been earned to date, and which I look at to determine your grade.

--I encourage you to look at your quiz in advance to get to know the problems, and to inform your reading of the chapter. There is no harm in getting into the quiz, and answering the questions you know already, just as long as you don't SUBMIT QUIZ before you are ready to have it graded. Aside from the due-date, there is no time-limit on taking the quiz, once you start the quiz.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies.

--If you need additional help in understanding the material, you have access to personal tutoring (Hours to be determined) is at LC 160 on the Kentfield Campus, and Bldg 17 on the IVC campus. Tutoring is scheduled by request so you should submit your application early in the semester. This is a free service. The best way to complete an application is online:

Dear Student,

Just as a reminder - the College requires instructors to clear our roster of students who are not significantly participating in the course. Since I am flexible with regards to attendance, my requirement for significantly participating in the course is the purchase of the access code and the completion of two assignments.

To that end, there are three things that must be done as quickly as possible:

1) Do the Chapter 1 Homework and take the Chapter 1-2 quiz, as these 2 assignments are a requirement for staying enrolled in the class. DUE DATE: SUN 9/18 8PM. Since the College will close enrollment that day, please complete the homework and quiz no later than 8pm SUN 9/18

2) If your free access to My Accounting Lab has expired, purchase the access code through the publisher when you sign on. You cannot do any more assignments without purchasing the code. Please do this Friday 9/16 or Saturday 9/17. Any students who have not purchased the code by then will be cleared from the roster

Since the College requires us to clear our roster of all students who are not significantly participating in the class, I will drop students by 8PM SUN 9/18 who have not a) not purchased the Pearson access code b) not completed Chapter 1 homework and c) not completed Chapter 1-2 Quiz.

Thanks for your understanding!

Here is the list of upcoming assignments:

--Chapter 1 homework.  Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, 9/18 11pm (8pm - see above)You must complete this assignment to keep enrolled in the class

Dear Students:

Our first couple weeks are over, and I want to make sure that all of you are on track and feeling more comfortable with the class. My job is to help you SUCCEED in accounting. To that end, here are some reminder questions:

1) Have you registered for the course with the College of Marin? If not, the deadline to add the course is tomorrow Fri Sept 9 in person, and Sunday, Sept 11 online.  After that, you can no longer add the course, or attend class.

2) Have you registered with MyAccountingLab? If not, you must register, and do Chapter 1 Homework and Chapter 1-2 Quiz by their due dates to keep enrolled in the class. (Hint: Chapter 1 is due this Sunday 9/11 by 11pm)

3) Are you still enjoying free temporary access to MyAccountingLab? Check to make sure that you pay for the access code before your access runs out, and you cannot complete your assignments/quizzes.

4) Have you allowed all pop ups and cookies for My Accounting Lab? If so, that might eliminate any error messages you are seeing.

Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 1 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Sept 11 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, 9/18 11pm. You must complete this assignment to keep enrolled in the class

Dear Students:

It has been a pleasure being your instructor this semester! Your willingness to work hard every week, show up to class, help others to learn, and contribute to class discussion with your insights was really inspirational to me.  It isn't easy to tackle the evening commute, get up early on Saturday, spend your free time reading an accounting textbook, as well as hours in class recording transactions and analyzing statements!  I thank you for all your efforts!

I have submitted the final grades for Business 112 (both sections) to College of Marin.  Your grade will be available for viewing from the COM MyPortal on June 7th.

Meanwhile, I have posted the final grades to the Final Grades section of this website.  Please email me if you have any concerns.  Please follow the directions at Final Grades icon of this website in order to access your particular grade.

I believe that accounting knowledge/skill is very valuable. Please recommend this class to others who might be interested in taking accounting.  I hope that you found the class stress free and flexible. Good luck to all of you in your future, and keep in touch!

*********************************************************************************************

Dear Students:

Our last week of class has concluded. 

 I want to thank you for coming to class, studying hard, and mastering accounting - which can be a very difficult subject.  I have enjoyed being your instructor!!

If you think the class has been worthwhile, would you recommend my class to others interested in taking accounting?  I would appreciate it!

 A reminder:  there is no final for this class, however I will be in the classroom during the scheduled final time to help anyone with extra credit work.  Please note the times, below.***

I would like you to take a moment now to check your point totals.

To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date and which I look at to determine your grade.

Below is the grading scale for the semester. After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

Please review the due date, below.  There is no exception to this due date, so please take an opportunity to review, and plan your workload accordingly.

--Extra Credit Problem Set. Due Date Monday, May 16 11pm. No Grace Period.

In the next 5 days, there are two remaining special (optional) class sessions for those who want help with extra credit problems.  Please see *** below.

Are you feeling behind in the class, and discouraged? Take heart!  There are still some points (see below!) to earn in these last few days.  I am here to help you earn them, so please contact me and come to the extra credit special class sessions. I care about your success! 

Here are the remaining points to be earned, based on upcoming due dates:

--Extra Credit Homework = 20 points possible***  Please note - if  you need a lot of extra credit points, you will probably need to come to both remaining class sessions to get a sufficient amount of help to answer them.  It usually takes about 15 minutes a problem, sometimes more.

***If you need extra credit points, below are the remaining special (optional) class sessions devoted to help with the Extra Credit Homework due at the end of the semester for those who wish to earn extra credit points. Extra credit work can boost your point total by as much as 20 points!  Each problem is worth 1 point, and you can earn as many or as little points as you want. Wrong or incomplete problems do not count against you.  I count only what you get right.

Dear Students:

We are in our 15th week of class (reviewing Chapter 15). Less than a week to go!  A reminder:  there is no final for this class, however I will be in the classroom during the scheduled final time to help anyone with extra credit work.  Please note the times, below.***

I would like you to take a moment now to check your point totals.

To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date and which I look at to determine your grade.

Below is the grading scale for the semester. After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

Please review the due dates, below.  All of them, with the exception of the extra credit, are due this Sunday, May 8 11pm, and there is no grace period. There are no exceptions to these due dates, so please take an opportunity to review them, and plan your workload accordingly.

Our last day of regular class is (IVC) Wednesday, 5/4 and (KFLD) 5/7.  However, there are special (optional) class sessions for those who want help with extra credit problems.  Please see *** below.

Are you feeling behind in the class, and discouraged? Take heart!  There are still plenty of points (see below!) to earn in this last month of class.  I am here to help you earn them, so please contact me, come to office hours, class and the extra credit special class sessions. I care about your success! 

Here are the remaining points to be earned, based on upcoming due dates:

--Chapter 12 Homework = 3.60 points possible

--Chapter 13 Homework =3.60 points possible

--Chapter 14 Homework = 4 points possible

--Chapter 15 Homework = 4 points possible

--Chapter 14-15 Quiz = 4 points possible

--Extra Credit Homework = 20 points possible***

***If you need extra credit points, below are the special (optional) class sessions devoted to help with the Extra Credit Homework due at the end of the semester for those who wish to earn extra credit points. Extra credit work can boost your point total by as much as 20 points!  Each problem is worth 1 point, and you can earn as many or as little points as you want. Wrong or incomplete problems do not count against you.  I count only what you get right.  Students from both sections are welcome at any of the below classes offered for extra credit help only. (Please note: I am unable to answer your questions on "Ask My Professor" for the Extra Credit Homework. The problems are more involved than our usual homework problems. That is why I have scheduled special class sessions to help you personally)

Dear Students:

Announcement for IVC students only - the Dean is coming to our class this Monday 4/4 at 6:10 to conduct my teacher evaluation. Please be on time for this class. At the start of class, she will talk, hand out a survey, and stay for a bit to listen to lecture.

Spring break is coming up, which means there is no class on Wednesday, April 13, and Saturday, April 16.

We are in our 11th week of class (reviewing Chapter 11), and from my experience, things go very quickly from this point to the end of the semester. I encourage students to get caught up, and to do any extra credit they can. If you need help, please come to class or to my office hour - and I can help you! There are special class sessions devoted to extra credit help at the end of the semester (consult your syllabus)- consider coming to them if you haven't yet done the extra credit and need additional points. Extra credit work, when completed accurately and in full, is worth an additional 20 points. Each extra credit problem is worth 1 point.

For those who work ahead - homework and quizzes through Chapter 13 are available for you to do on MyAccounting Lab. The remaining work - Chapters 14 and 15 homework and quiz will be available on 4/10.

Below is the grading scale for the semester. After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B

--Chapter 11-12-13 Quiz. Due Date: May 8 11pm. No Grace period.

Each week, we are solving extra credit problems in class. Those points help a student make up for missing work or points lost on quizzes. If you have missed opportunities to do the extra credit in class, please proceed on your own to solve them, or be sure to come to the classes at the end of the semester reserved for extra credit problem solving, if you need the points. Each extra credit problem is worth 1 point.

Midterm grades have been posted on the College My Com Portal, and on our class website.

--If, for any reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. All assignments (homework, quizzes, Extra Credit, are available for you to work 3 weeks ahead of time at a minimum. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

Some helpful suggestions:

--Make friends with your classmates. Sit together, talk together, and work on homework problems together while in class. I like a fair amount of chatter in the class. Exchange phone numbers and emails. I encourage you to help and be helped by your classmates.

--If you are having troubles with MyAccountingLab, first check that your computer meets the browser requirements. Then, set your Internet Options to disable popup blockers and allow all cookies. If you computer is still not responding, consider using a friend's computer, or the computers provided in the computer labs on campus.

--If you would prefer to bring a print copy of your homework to class, instead of a laptop, the option to print your homework is located on the Question Help menu when you are in any homework problem.

--Remember that you can attend either section of my Financial Accounting classes whenever you want - no need to email me to ask permission. I teach this class at the Indian Valley campus of College of Marin in Building 27, Room 118 on Mon/Wed nights 6:10-8pm, and also teach the very same class at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin in AC 240 on Saturdays from 9:10-1pm. Not sure what we are covering at each campus? Look at Syllabi on this website, and check out what we are covering each class date.

--I am here to help you SUCCEED in accounting. Please email me if you have any questions or problems, and I will get right back to you (usually within a day). I also have office hours (See Office / Class Hours on this website) in which we can work on problems together, or I can help you with understanding the theory and language of accounting. Don't be shy!

--It appears that the looseleaf textbook is not provided if you buy the text directly from the publisher. An etext and an access code are only provided. The publisher cannot give us any desk copies, but if you want a printed copy of the book, it can be rented from www.chegg.com

--An e-book of the text is available at My Accounting Lab. It is located on your MyAccountingLab menu under Pearson etext. No time to read the text? Review the Power Point slides for each chapter available at MyAccountingLab under Chapter Resources

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using My Accounting Lab online program. This means that you need to have access to a computer and an Internet connection to do your work. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe and Library in Bldg 27, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students access to computers and Internet. Both classrooms (Bldg 27, Room 118, and AC240) also have Internet access.

--We do the homework in class. Whenever possible, we also work on the extra credit. To that end, bring your laptop/tablet to access My Accounting Lab in class (which has an internet connection). Mobile devices may/may not work

--All homework, extra credit and quizzes are open-book, open-note. Use all your materials to help you succeed.

Some other reminders:

--The College requires instructors to drop students not "significantly participating" in the class. Please note (see FAQ on this website) that, at midterm, students who are failing the course may be dropped by the instructor with a W grade.

--I am told that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work best with MyAccounting Lab online.

--I encourage you to use "Question Help" at the top right of your screen when you are doing a homework problem in My Accounting Lab. There you will find help in answering that specific question, such as Demo Docs, videos, the etext pages covering that problem, and also "Ask My Instructor." If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with the problem you are working on along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within 24 hours. If you are struggling just with a couple of problems in the homework, be sure to use this feature "Ask My Instructor," and I will help you within 24 hours of receipt of the email that the feature sends to me. (Note: because I have a day job other than teaching, I can only handle at most two emails per student per day. Be sure to use the feature in plenty of time to meet your deadlines, below, as I don't check my email several times a day, and I am asleep most nights by 8pm).

--While working on your quiz in My Accounting Lab online, don't SUBMIT QUIZ unless you want it to count as your only allowed submission. Simply x (or leave) the page. Your answers will still be there when you resume. However, when it's time for you to submit your quiz for grading, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ.

--I encourage you to look at your quiz in advance to get to know the problems, and to inform your reading of the chapter. There is no harm in getting into the quiz, and answering the questions you know already, just as long as you don't SUBMIT QUIZ before you are ready to have it graded. Aside from the due-date, there is no time-limit on taking the quiz, once you start the quiz.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies.

--If you need additional help in understanding the material, you have access to personal tutoring (Hours to be determined) is at LC 160 on the Kentfield Campus, and Bldg 17 on the IVC campus.

Dear Students:

Announcement for IVC students only -  the Dean is coming to our class on Monday 4/4 at 6:10 to conduct my teacher evaluation.  Please be on time for this class. At the start of class, she will talk, hand out a survey, and stay for a bit to listen to lecture.

Spring break is coming up, which means there is no class on Wednesday, April 13, and Saturday, April 16.

We are in our 10th week of class (reviewing Chapter 10), and from my experience, things go very quickly from this point to the end of the semester.  I encourage students to get caught up, and to do any extra credit they can.  If you need help, please come to class or to my office hour - and I can help you!  There are special class sessions devoted to extra credit help at the end of the semester (consult your syllabus)- consider coming to them if you haven't yet done the extra credit and need additional points.  Extra credit work, when completed accurately and in full, is worth an additional 20 points.  Each extra credit problem is worth 1 point.

For those who work ahead - homework and quizzes through Chapter 13 are available for you to do on MyAccounting Lab.  The remaining work - Chapters 14 and 15 homework and quiz will be available on 4/10.

Below is the grading scale for the semester.  After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade. 

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date and which I look at to determine your grade.

Let's review some upcoming due dates:

--Chapter 7 homework.  Grace Period End Date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, March 27 11pm.

--Chapter 8 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Mar 27 11pm. Grace Period End Date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, April 3 11pm.

--Chapter 7-8 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, Mar 27 11pm. No Grace period.

--Chapter 9 homework. Due Date: April 3 11pm. Grace Period End Date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, April 10 11pm.

--Chapter 10 homework. Due Date: April 10 11pm. Grace Period End Date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, April 24 11pm.

--Chapter 9-10 Quiz. Due Date: April 10 11pm. No Grace period.

Each week, we are solving extra credit problems in class. Those points help a student make up for missing work or points lost on quizzes. If you have missed opportunities to do the extra credit in class, please proceed on your own to solve them, or be sure to come to the classes at the end of the semester reserved for extra credit problem solving, if you need the points. Each extra credit problem is worth 1 point.

Midterm grades have been posted on the College My Com Portal, and on our class website. 

--If, for any reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. All assignments (homework, quizzes, Extra Credit, are available for you to work 3 weeks ahead of time at a minimum. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

Some helpful suggestions:

--Make friends with your classmates. Sit together, talk together, and work on homework problems together while in class. I like a fair amount of chatter in the class. Exchange phone numbers and emails. I encourage you to help and be helped by your classmates.

--If you are having troubles with MyAccountingLab, first check that your computer meets the browser requirements. Then, set your Internet Options to disable popup blockers and allow all cookies. If you computer is still not responding, consider using a friend's computer, or the computers provided in the computer labs on campus.

--If you would prefer to bring a print copy of your homework to class, instead of a laptop, the option to print your homework is located on the Question Help menu when you are in any homework problem.

--Remember that you can attend either section of my Financial Accounting classes whenever you want - no need to email me to ask permission. I teach this class at the Indian Valley campus of College of Marin in Building 27, Room 118 on Mon/Wed nights 6:10-8pm, and also teach the very same class at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin in AC 240 on Saturdays from 9:10-1pm. Not sure what we are covering at each campus? Look at Syllabi on this website, and check out what we are covering each class date.

--I am here to help you SUCCEED in accounting. Please email me if you have any questions or problems, and I will get right back to you (usually within a day). I also have office hours (See Office / Class Hours on this website) in which we can work on problems together, or I can help you with understanding the theory and language of accounting. Don't be shy!

--It appears that the looseleaf textbook is not provided if you buy the text directly from the publisher. An etext and an access code are only provided. The publisher cannot give us any desk copies, but if you want a printed copy of the book, it can be rented from www.chegg.com

--An e-book of the text is available at My Accounting Lab. It is located on your MyAccountingLab menu under Pearson etext. No time to read the text? Review the Power Point slides for each chapter available at MyAccountingLab under Chapter Resources

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using My Accounting Lab online program. This means that you need to have access to a computer and an Internet connection to do your work. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe and Library in Bldg 27, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students access to computers and Internet. Both classrooms (Bldg 27, Room 118, and AC240) also have Internet access.

--We do the homework in class. Whenever possible, we also work on the extra credit. To that end, bring your laptop/tablet to access My Accounting Lab in class (which has an internet connection). Mobile devices may/may not work

--All homework, extra credit and quizzes are open-book, open-note. Use all your materials to help you succeed.

Some other reminders:

--The College requires instructors to drop students not "significantly participating" in the class. Please note (see FAQ on this website) that, at midterm, students who are failing the course may be dropped by the instructor with a W grade.

--I am told that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work best with MyAccounting Lab online.

--I encourage you to use "Question Help" at the top right of your screen when you are doing a homework problem in My Accounting Lab. There you will find help in answering that specific question, such as Demo Docs, videos, the etext pages covering that problem, and also "Ask My Instructor." If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with the problem you are working on along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within 24 hours. If you are struggling just with a couple of problems in the homework, be sure to use this feature "Ask My Instructor," and I will help you within 24 hours of receipt of the email that the feature sends to me. (Note: because I have a day job other than teaching, I can only handle at most two emails per student per day. Be sure to use the feature in plenty of time to meet your deadlines, below, as I don't check my email several times a day, and I am asleep most nights by 8pm).

--While working on your quiz in My Accounting Lab online, don't SUBMIT QUIZ unless you want it to count as your only allowed submission. Simply x (or leave) the page. Your answers will still be there when you resume. However, when it's time for you to submit your quiz for grading, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ.

Dear Students:

We are now starting our 9th week of classes.

--Chapter 1 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Jan 31 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Feb 7 11pm.

--Chapter 1-2 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, Feb 7 11pm. No grace period.

--Saturday, Feb 13 (KFLD class) and Monday, Feb 15 (IVC class) - No class because of Presidents Day Holiday weekend.

--Chapter 2 homework.  Due Date:  Sunday, Feb 7 11pm.  Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Feb 21 11pm

Some other reminders:

--The College requires instructors to drop students not "significantly participating" in the class. Please note (see FAQ on this website) that students must complete Chapter 1 homework and take Chapter 1-2 quiz by their due dates to be considered as significantly participating in the class.  If you do not, you may be dropped from the class. 

--I am told that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work best with MyAccounting Lab online.

--I encourage you to use "Question Help" at the top right of your screen when you are doing a homework problem in My Accounting Lab. There you will find help in answering that specific question, such as Demo Docs, videos, the etext pages covering that problem, and also Ask My Instructor. If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with the problem you are working on along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within 24 hours.

--While working on your quiz in My Accounting Lab online, don't SUBMIT QUIZ unless you want it to count as your only allowed submission. Simply x (or leave) the page. Your answers will still be there when you resume. However, when it's time for you to submit your quiz for grading, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ.

--I encourage you to look at your quiz in advance to get to know the problems, and to inform your reading of the chapter. There is no harm in getting into the quiz, and answering the questions you know already, just as long as you don't SUBMIT QUIZ before you are ready to have it graded. Aside from the due-date, there is no time-limit on taking the quiz, once you start the quiz.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies.

--If you need additional help in understanding the material, you have access to personal tutoring (Hours to be determined) is at LC 160 on the Kentfield Campus, and Bldg 17 on the IVC campus. Tutoring is scheduled by request so you should submit your application early in the semester. This is a free service. The best way to complete an application is online:

Dear Students:

Final grades have been posted to our class website (at Final Grades icon), and with the College of Marin.  

Please contact me should you have any questions.  A detailed breakdown of each assignment's point total is available at the Final Grades Icon on our class website, as well as the overall point total and grade for the course.

Please recommend this class to anyone you know who might want to take accounting  --- and would benefit from the approach we use in the classroom.

Thank you again for studying so hard to master financial accounting!  It has been a pleasure being your instructor this semester.

Have a lovely winter break!

Dear Students:

Please read this NewsFlash carefully. Here is the one remaining  critical due date.

--Extra Credit Homework. Due Date: Sunday, December 13 11pm. No grace period.

If you need some extra points to add to your score, use these last few hours to do as much of the extra credit as you need.  Remember: partial answers get credit, also, so do as much as you can. Here are my suggestions for the extra credit:

Do the easy ones first - #8,9,10,11,13,15.  Each one of these, when completed fully, is worth a point.

Do the medium-hard ones next - #7, 12, 14.  Each of these varies from 1 -2 points.

Do the long ones (though not the hardest ones to understand) last - #1-6.  Each of these varies from 1-2 points.

PLEASE NOTE: An Incomplete grade can be issued under very special circumstances, and with a verifiable reason. Please see FAQ2 on this website for the two questions dealing with Incomplete grades.

PLEASE NOTE: All deadlines are final. If, for ANY reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you doing extra credit, it is not necessary to do the earlier extra credit problems to jump in and do later extra credit problems. We will continue to do extra credit problems in class whenever we have the time, but I encourage you to work them on your own as much as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: You may want to keep track of the points you are earning so that you know when you have reached your desired grade. Below is my grading scale. To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date. This is the number that I use to compute the grade below. In this example, the student would have to earn an additional 42.7 points (89.5 points (see below) minus 46.8 points) to reach an A for the semester. Assuming that the student scores 100% - the following are the remaining points to be earned: Each remaining homework assignment is worth 4 points, Chapter 11-12-13 Quiz is worth 6 points, Chapter 14-15 Quiz is worth 4 points, and the Extra Credit Assignment is worth 20 points.

Please contact me if you are unclear as to how to find your point total.

After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

--When doing homework, make sure that you see that the phrase "Changes made here WILL affect your score" in green. Sometimes students wander into the review mode in which the phrase "Changes made here WILL NOT affect your score" in red. Any work in the review mode does not count for your homework score.


*********************************************************************************************

Dear Students:

Our last week of classes has concluded, and I want to thank all of you for working so hard to master this subject.  It isn't easy!  Congratulations on making it through!

May I ask a favor?  If you know of anyone who would like to take accounting, and you think my class would be good fit for them, please ask them to take my class.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no final in both classes. The days scheduled for the final are reserved exclusively for those who need help on completing some extra credit work.  Unfortunately, I cannot help you with extra credit problems via email or the "Ask My Instructor" feature in MyAccountingLab, as these problems are usually too extensive to answer, except in person. To use the time most efficiently, come to class with questions/help needed on problems that you have already started but can't complete. Both IVC and KFLD students are welcome to attend either/both days. Here are the days:

--For Section 80126 IVC- the scheduled "final day" is Monday December 7, 6:10 - 8pm IVC Bldg 27, Room 118. For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 6:30pm.

--For Section 80124 KFLD- the scheduled "final day" is Saturday, December 12, 9:10 - 12pm KFLD AC (Academic Center) Room 249 . For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 9:30am.

PLEASE NOTE:  All remaining work, with the exception of the Extra Credit, must be submitted no later than Sunday, 12/6 11pm. Also note that, in addition to the quizzes, Chapters 14 and 15 Homework, and the Extra Credit Homework have no grace periods - in other words, the due date is the final date that you can submit.

Please read this NewsFlash carefully. Here are the critical due dates and notable class dates.

--Chapters 12. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, December 6 11pm

--Chapters 13.  Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, December 6 11pm

Before any due date, be sure to SAVE your homework in the case you might have forgotten to do it.

--If you are ready to submit your quiz to me, select the SUBMIT QUIZ button while in the test. Before any quiz due date, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ to me when you are ready, so that you don't forget to do it.

Here are some important reminders:

-Remember that you can attend either section of my Financial Accounting classes whenever you want - no need to email me to ask permission. I teach this class at the Indian Valley campus of College of Marin in Building 27, Room 118 on Mon/Wed nights 6:10-8pm, and also teach the very same class at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin in AC 249 on Saturdays from 9:10-1pm. Not sure what we are covering at each campus? Look at Syllabi on this website, and check out what we are covering each class date.

--Please note the correction to the Class Overview and Kentfield Syllabus handed out in class. The Kentfield class meets on Saturdays at Academic Center 249 (not Administration Center 249).

If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with your answer to that homework problem along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within a day. Please do not submit more than 2 questions a day to me. Please submit your questions well in advance of the due date for that assignment.

--I encourage you to look at your quiz in advance to get to know the problems, and to inform your reading of the chapter.

Dear Students:

In the next several days, we will be doing Chapter 13 in class.  If you don't already bring a calculator to class, consider bringing a cheap one for these next few chapters (Chapters 13-15) - there are intensive calculations in a lot of the homework, and I find the MyAccountingLab calculator to be clumsy and time consuming.

Please read this NewsFlash carefully, as we are wrapping up the semester.  Regular class meetings end in a little over three weeks from now. Here are the critical due dates and notable class dates.

--There is no class for KFLD on Saturday 11/28 as it is a school holiday (Thanksgiving weekend)

PLEASE NOTE: The last day of regular class for IVC is Wednesday, December 2. The last day of regular class for KFLD is Saturday, December 5.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no final in both classes. The days scheduled for the final are reserved exclusively for those who need help on completing some extra credit work. Unfortunately, I cannot help you with extra credit problems via email or the "Ask My Instructor" feature in MyAccountingLab, as these problems are usually too extended to answer, except in person. To use the time most efficiently, come to class with questions/help needed on problems that you have already started but can't complete. Both IVC and KFLD students are welcome to attend either/both days. Here are the days:

--For Section 80126 IVC- the scheduled "final day" is Monday December 7, 6:10 - 8pm IVC Bldg 27, Room 118. For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 6:30pm.

--For Section 80124 KFLD- the scheduled "final day" is Saturday, December 12, 9:10 - 12pm KFLD AC (Academic Center) Room 249 . For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 9:30am.

PLEASE NOTE: All remaining assignments for the course (Chapters 14 and 15 Homework, and Chapters 14-15 Quiz) are now available to be worked on in MyAccountingLab. For those of you working ahead of the class pace, this will be helpful to you, especially if you have other pressing concerns (family, trips, other classes), and you want to do these assignments ahead of their due date.

PLEASE NOTE: An Incomplete grade can be issued under very special circumstances, and with a verifiable reason.  Please see FAQ2 on this website for the two questions dealing with Incomplete grades.

PLEASE NOTE:  All deadlines are final. If, for ANY reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you doing extra credit, it is not necessary to do the earlier extra credit problems to jump in and do later extra credit problems. We will continue to do extra credit problems in class whenever we have the time, but I encourage you to work them on your own as much as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: You may want to keep track of the points you are earning so that you know when you have reached your desired grade. Below is my grading scale. To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date. This is the number that I use to compute the grade below. In this example, the student would have to earn an additional 42.7 points (89.5 points (see below) minus 46.8 points) to reach an A for the semester. Assuming that the student scores 100% - the following are the remaining points to be earned: Each remaining homework assignment is worth 4 points, Chapter 9-10 Quiz is worth 6 points, Chapter 11-12-13 Quiz is worth 6 points, Chapter 14-15 Quiz is worth 4 points, and the Extra Credit Assignment is worth 20 points.

Please contact me if you are unclear as to how to find your point total.

After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you who are a bit behind the pace of the class, this next month will be a bit more work for you. If, let's say, you are still reading and working Chapter 10, be aware that you will have to read and do the homework/take the quizzes for 6 chapters (through Chapter 15) in the upcoming 22 days! Be especially attentive to the due dates in red and green, below. Also note that, in addition to the quizzes, Chapters 14 and 15 Homework, and the Extra Credit Homework have no grace periods - in other words, the due date is the final date that you can submit.

***********************************************************************************************

Dear Students:

We have completed our 12th week of classes, and have finished Chapter 12.  Only 3 more chapters to go!  I want to thank you for working so hard, especially through these last few weeks.  Please read this NewsFlash carefully.  We are beginning to wrap up the semester, and I want to make sure that you know in advance of critical due dates and class schedules.

--Our upcoming IVC class on Monday 11/9 will be exclusively devoted to helping students catch up on any homework and/or extra credit. (We finished Chapter 12 work in our previous class on Wed 11/4). Both IVC and KFLD students are invited to get help during this entire class time on Monday 11/9 if they wish. Students not wishing to catch up on any homework/extra credit need not attend.

--There is no class for IVC on Wednesday 11/11 as it is a school holiday (Veteran's Day).

--There is no class for KFLD on Saturday 11/28 as it is a school holiday (Thanksgiving weekend)

PLEASE NOTE: All remaining assignments for the course (Chapters 14 and 15 Homework, and Chapters 14-15 Quiz) are now available to be worked on in MyAccountingLab. For those of you working ahead of the class pace, this will be helpful to you, especially if you have other pressing concerns (family, trips, other classes), and you want to do these assignments ahead of their due date.

PLEASE NOTE: The last day of regular class for IVC is Wednesday,  December 2.  The last day of regular class for KFLD is Saturday, December 5.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no final in both classes.  The days scheduled for the final are reserved exclusively for those who need help on completing some extra credit work.  Unfortunately, I cannot help you with extra credit problems via email or the "Ask My Instructor" feature in MyAccountingLab, as these problems are usually too extended to answer, except in person. To use the time most efficiently, come to class with questions/help needed on problems that you have already started but can't complete. Both IVC and KFLD students are welcome to attend either/both days. Here are the days:

--For Section 80126 IVC- the scheduled "final day" is Monday December 7, 6:10 - 8pm IVC Bldg 27, Room 118. For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 6:30pm.

--For Section 80124 KFLD- the scheduled "final day" is Saturday, December 12, 9:10 - 12pm KFLD AC (Academic Center) Room 249 . For those wishing to attend this class, be in class no later than 9:30am.

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you doing extra credit, it is not necessary to do the earlier extra credit problems to jump in and do later extra credit problems. We will continue to do extra credit problems in class whenever we have the time, but I encourage you to work them on your own as much as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: You may want to keep track of the points you are earning so that you know when you have reached your desired grade. Below is my grading scale. To find out how many points you have earned to date, go to MyAccountingLab. Then select Results, then select Overall Score. You will see a percentage and a fraction at the top of the page. For example you might see: 78% (46.8/60). It is the 46.8 that are the total points that have been earned to date. This is the number that I use to compute the grade below. In this example, the student would have to earn an additional 42.7 points (89.5 points (see below) minus 46.8 points) to reach an A for the semester. Assuming that the student scores 100% - the following are the remaining points to be earned: Each remaining homework assignment is worth 4 points, Chapter 9-10 Quiz is worth 6 points, Chapter 11-12-13 Quiz is worth 6 points, Chapter 14-15 Quiz is worth 4 points, and the Extra Credit Assignment is worth 20 points.

Please contact me if you are unclear as to how to find your point total.

After you have reached your desired point total/grade, there is no need for you to complete any further assignments to keep your grade.

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

PLEASE NOTE: For those of you who are a bit behind the pace of the class, this next month will be a bit more work for you. If, let's say, you are still reading and working Chapter 9, be aware that you will have to read and do the homework/take the quizzes for 7 chapters (through Chapter 15) in the upcoming 28 days!  Be especially attentive to the due dates in red and green, below.  Also note that, in addition to the quizzes, Chapters 14 and 15 Homework, and the Extra Credit Homework have no grace periods - in other words, the due date is the final date that you can submit.

Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 9 homework. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, November 8 11pm.

--Chapter 10 homework. Due Date: Sunday, November 8 11pm. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Nov 15 11pm

--Chapters 9-10 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, November 8 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 11 homework. Due Date: Sunday, November 15 11pm. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): November 22 11pm.

--Chapters 12. Due Date: Sunday, November 22 11pm. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): December 6 11pm

--Chapters 13. Due Date: Sunday, November 22 11pm. Grace period end date (with 10% deduction): December 6 11pm

--Chapters 11-12-13 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday November 22 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 14 Homework. Due Date: Sunday, December 6  11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 15 Homework. Due Date:  Sunday, December 6 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 14-15 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, December 6 11pm. No grace period.

--Extra Credit Homework. Due Date: Sunday, December 13. No grace period.

--If, for ANY reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. Word of advice: don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

--When doing homework, make sure that you see that the phrase "Changes made here WILL affect your score" in green. Sometimes students wander into the review mode in which the phrase "Changes made here WILL NOT affect your score" in red. Any work in the review mode does not count for your homework score.

Midterm grades will be posted during the week of October 19th, and will include all the work you have done through October 18 (Chapters 1-7, all the Quizzes you have taken for Chapters 1-6,  and any extra credit you have accomplished).  Take the time now to review your Results in MyAccountingLab and note any assignments that you still have time to complete, as well as any extra credit you have time to do.

If you have a failing midterm grade, I may drop your enrollment with a W grade (Withdraw) if it appears that you are no longer significantly participating in the class. You may also contact me to request a W grade at midterm if you feel it is best for you.

Mobile devices may/may not work.  However, you can print out your homework and extra credit by selecting (when in the work itself in My Accounting Lab) Question Help.  An option to print the problem or the entire assignment is then given you.

--All homework, extra credit and quizzes are open-book, open-note. Use all your materials to help you succeed.

Some other reminders:

--If you would like to review what questions you got wrong on any past quiz, go to Results on your Main Menu in MyAccounting Lab.  Select "Review" next to the quiz name.  Review is only possible after the due date has passed for the quiz.

--I encourage you to use "Question Help" at the top right of your screen when you are doing a homework problem in My Accounting Lab. There you will find help in answering that specific question, such as Demo Docs, videos, the etext pages covering that problem, and also Ask My Instructor. If you select Ask My Instructor, an email is sent to me with your answer to that homework problem along with whatever question you want to ask me. I can get back to you via email with help on solving the problem within a day.

--I encourage you to look at your quiz in advance to get to know the problems, and to inform your reading of the chapter. There is no harm in getting into the quiz, and answering the questions you know already, just as long as you don't SUBMIT QUIZ before you are ready to have it graded. Aside from the due-date, there is no time-limit on taking the quiz, once you start the quiz.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies.

--If you need additional help in understanding the material, please come to my office hours. The times and locations are on this website. Also, you have access to personal tutoring (Hours to be determined) is at LC 160 on the Kentfield Campus, and Bldg 17 on the IVC campus. Tutoring is scheduled by request so you should submit your application early in the semester. This is a free service. The best way to complete an application is online:

Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 1 homework. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 13 11pm. If you haven't finished Chapter 1, please do so by the Grace Period End Date.

--Chapter 1-2 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, September 13 11pm. No grace period. This assignment must be done by the due date Sunday 9-13-15 11pm to keep enrolled in the class.

--Chapter 2 homework. Due Date: Sunday, September 13 11pm.  Grace period end date (with 10% deduction):  Sunday, September 20 11pm.

--If, for ANY reason, you cannot access MyAccounting Lab to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. Word of advice:  don't wait until the last moment before the due date to submit your work....I can't tell you how many students have encountered power outages, internet connection problems, and computer problems at the very worst time - just when they want to submit their work. Yikes!

--If you are ready to submit your homework to me, select the SAVE button on any homework problem.  Then, to be sure, quickly check your Results at My Accounting Lab, to see that it is what you anticipated.  Before any due date, be sure to SAVE your homework in the case you might have forgotten to do it.

--If you are ready to submit your quiz to me, select the SUBMIT QUIZ button while in the test.  Before any quiz due date, be sure to SUBMIT QUIZ to me when you are ready, so that you don't forget to do it.

--If you prefer working with paper (or don't want to bring laptop), print out your homework from the My Accounting Lab program and bring it to class. For this coming week, be sure to print out Chapter 4 and 5 homework.  Also, print out the first and second problem of the extra credit problem set.  We may have an opportunity to start working on it.

Here are some important reminders:

The first week of class is already over and I want to thank you for coming to class and working hard to learn accounting, the language of business! Be patient with yourself, and know that what you are learning now will begin to make some sense in about 2-3 weeks. It's a difficult subject, but I hope to make it easy and stress-free for you to learn.

Here are some reminders to help you during these first few weeks:

--Did anyone leave a stainless steel Starbucks coffee mug in the classroom last Saturday?  If so, I placed it on the teacher's desk, so you can claim it on Monday.

--Make friends with your classmates. Sit together, talk together, and work on homework problems together while in class. I like a fair amount of chatter in the class.  I encourage you to help and be helped by your classmates.

--Do you know a friend/family member/other student that would like to take accounting in an easy, low-stress way?  Encourage them to enroll in the class. The first assignment is due 2 weeks from now, so there is plenty of time for them to catch up.  Having someone to take the course with makes the learning even easier.

--Remember that you can attend either section of my Financial Accounting classes whenever you want - no need to email me to ask permission.  I teach this class at the Indian Valley campus of College of Marin in Building 27, Room 118 on Mon/Wed nights 6:10-8pm, and also teach the very same class at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin in AC 249 on Saturdays from 9:10-1pm.  Not sure what we are covering at each campus?  Look at  Syllabi on this website, and check out what we are covering each class date.

--I am here to help you SUCCEED in accounting. Please email me if you have any questions or problems, and I will get right back to you (usually within a day).  I also have office hours (See Office / Class Hours on this website)  in which we can work on problems together, or I can help you with understanding the theory and language of accounting. Don't be shy!  

--Please note the correction to the Class Overview and Kentfield Syllabus handed out in class.  The Kentfield class meets on Saturdays at Academic Center 249 (not Administration Center 249).

*********************************************************************************************

 

Hello Students:

Final grades have been posted to our class website (at Final Grades icon), and with the College of Marin.

Have a lovely summer break!

Please recommend this class to anyone you know that wants to take accounting and would benefit from the approach we use in the classroom.

Thank you again for studying so hard and mastering financial accounting!

 

*********************************************************************************************

Dear Students:

PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR CENGAGE EXTRA CREDIT and SUBMIT (not just save) your work, if you have not submitted it before.  It is only when you SUBMIT that the score gets to me.  I see 2-3 students who have not SUBMITTED their assignments so please SUBMIT when you have finished the assignment.

Please note that there is no final in either the KFLD OR IVC course.

If you feel that this class has been worthwhile, would you please recommend the course to family/friends for the upcoming semester? The College is seeking to boost its enrollment, and I believe that this class, and its format, would be useful to many.  Thank you!

I plan on posting the final grades to this website by the weekend, so stay posted.

Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Extra Credit problem set. Due Date: TONIGHT, Monday May 18 11pm. No grace period.

The following "final day" is scheduled to help all (KFLD AND IVC) students earn points with their extra credit problem set. Attendance is optional. That day is:

Mon 5/18 - Be in class no later than 6:30pm.  Classroom is IVC campus, Bldg 27, Room 118

Some further notes on calculating your point total for your final grade:

-In Cengage, please do not use any percentages shown for your course grade as an indication of what your grade is. Instead, use only the total of all the points you have earned for your assignments, quizzes and extra credit.

--If you have finished your extra credit assignment or any assignment, be sure to SUBMIT it to me via Cengage. Only assignments that are SUBMITTED make it to my gradebook. Just because you have SAVED the assignment, does not mean that you have SUBMITTED the assignment. So, be sure to select the SUBMIT button when you are ready. The extra credit assignment has unlimited submissions until the due date/grace period end date, as well as any homework, but quizzes have only one submission allowed.

Below is my grading scale based on the POINTS YOU HAVE EARNED. (I do not give "+" or "-" grades, ie B+)

89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

Do not rely upon any percentage shown on Cengage as indicative of your grade. Rather I only use the points as shown for each assignment, including the extra credit, to compute your grade. Remember - for an assignment to count, it must be SUBMITTED - not just saved. Please go back to any work that is still pending, and SUBMIT it.

 If you are planning to take Managerial Accounting at College of Marin, and want to make use of your two-semester Cengage access that you purchased, please enroll in Managerial Accounting for the Fall Semester 2015.  The professor will no longer be using Cengage materials in the Spring Semester 2016.  Also, if you are considering re-taking my course, please note that we will be using a new textbook for the Fall 2015 semester.

 If you are just now beginning to do the extra credit problem set, here is an overview of the extra credit exam.

There are 30 questions in the Extra Credit Problem Set. Each question is worth .67 points.

Doing the extra credit assignment cannot hurt you in any way. I only take your right answers. Wrong answers do not count against you. The extra credit is like any other homework assignment. It has a "Check My Work" feature that allows you to see if you have the right answer. You can submit the assignment an unlimited amount of times until the due date - Monday, 5/18 11pm.

There are:
11 easy problems
14 medium problems
5 hard problems.

The problems are arranged in chapter order:
1 problem from Ch 1;
3 from Ch 2;
2 from Ch 3;
2 from Ch 4;
1 from Ch 5;
3 from Ch 6;
2 from Ch 7;
2 from Ch 8;
2 from Ch 9;
2 from Ch 10;
2 from Ch 11;
2 from Ch 12;
1 from Ch 13;
2 from Ch 14;
3 from Ch 15.

The problems are arranged i
n the following order from the following problems in the book (although they differ in amount and names). To interpret where to find these exercises and practice exercises, look in the back of each chapter. For instance, EX 1-18 is Exercise 1-18 at the back of Chapter 1, EX2-7 is Exercise 2-7 in the back of Chapter 2, PE 6-6A is Practice Exercise 6-6A at the back of Chapter 6, etc. The difficulty of each problem is in parentheses:
1) EX 1-18 (easy)
2) EX2-7 (medium)
3) EX 2-16 (medium)
4) EX 2-23 (easy)
5) EX 3-11 (easy)

Every Monday (IVC) and Saturday (KFLD), we have been working on the extra credit problem set to gain extra points. Here is an overview of the extra credit problem set:

There are 30 questions in the Extra Credit Problem Set. Each question is worth .67 points.

Doing the extra credit assignment cannot hurt you in any way. I only take your right answers. Wrong answers do not count against you. The extra credit is like any other homework assignment. It has a "Check My Work" feature that allows you to see if you have the right answer. You can submit the assignment an unlimited amount of times until the due date - Monday, 5/18 11pm.

Here is an overview of the extra credit exam. There are:
11 easy problems
14 medium problems
5 hard problems.

The problems are arranged in chapter order:
1 problem from Ch 1;
3 from Ch 2;
2 from Ch 3;
2 from Ch 4;
1 from Ch 5;
3 from Ch 6;
2 from Ch 7;
2 from Ch 8;
2 from Ch 9;
2 from Ch 10;
2 from Ch 11;
2 from Ch 12;
1 from Ch 13;
2 from Ch 14;
3 from Ch 15.

The problems are arranged i
n the following order from the following problems in the book (although they differ in amount and names). To interpret where to find these exercises and practice exercises, look in the back of each chapter. For instance, EX 1-18 is Exercise 1-18 at the back of Chapter 1, EX2-7 is Exercise 2-7 in the back of Chapter 2, PE 6-6A is Practice Exercise 6-6A at the back of Chapter 6, etc. The difficulty of each problem is in parentheses:
1) EX 1-18 (easy)
2) EX2-7 (medium)
3) EX 2-16 (medium)
4) EX 2-23 (easy)
5) EX 3-11 (easy)
6) EX 3-29 (easy)
7) EX 4-12 (medium)
8) EX 4-21 (easy)
9) EX 5-23 (medium)
10) PE 6-2A (medium)
11) PE 6-6A (medium)
12) PE 6-8A (medium)
13) EX 7-18 (medium)
14) EX 7-28 (medium)

Hello Students:

We have completed the 14th week of class - and I would like to remind everyone that we will do extra credit problems in class if we have any spare time (ie we have a short class). Rather than leave early, you are invited to stay for the extra credit (although it's not mandatory). So, bring a printout of your extra credit problem set (or your laptops) to class, and we will dig in.

Here is some news that you can use for planning your workload:

--By 11/16 all remaining assignments in the course will be available on Cengage in order for you to work ahead, should you wish.

--In Cengage, please do not use any percentages shown for your course grade as an indication of what your grade is. Instead, use only the total of all the points you have earned for your assignments, quizzes and extra credit.

--If you have finished your extra credit assignment, be sure to SUBMIT it to me via Cengage. Only assignments that are SUBMITTED make it to my gradebook. Just because you have SAVED the assignment, does not mean that you have SUBMITTED the assignment. So, be sure to select the SUBMIT button when you are ready. The extra credit assignment has unlimited submissions.

We have several class dates scheduled only for extra credit work. Attendance is optional. Here are the dates:

-- Wed. Nov 26 IVC campus Bldg 27, Rm 118, 6:10pm - 8pm - If you are going to attend, be in the classroom no later than 6:30pm (This is the night before Thanksgiving)

Several students have asked for assignments to be made available in advance for them to work on. I am happy to see this! I make assignments available 3 weeks before their due date.

I am also making the optional extra credit problem set available to you, starting Sunday Sept. 14th, to start working on. Here is an overview of the extra credit problem set:

There are 30 questions in the Extra Credit Problem Set. Each question is worth .67 points.

Doing the extra credit assignment cannot hurt you in any way. I only take your right answers. Wrong answers do not count against you. The extra credit is like any other homework assignment. It has a "Check My Work" feature that allows you to see if you have the right answer. You can submit the assignment an unlimited amount of times until the due date December 14 11pm

Here is an overview of the extra credit exam. There are:
11 easy problems
14 medium problems
5 hard problems.

The problems are arranged in chapter order:
1 problem from Ch 1;
3 from Ch 2;
2 from Ch 3;
2 from Ch 4;
1 from Ch 5;
3 from Ch 6;
2 from Ch 7;
2 from Ch 8;
2 from Ch 9;
2 from Ch 10;
2 from Ch 11;
2 from Ch 12;
1 from Ch 13;
2 from Ch 14;
3 from Ch 15.

The problems are arranged in the following order from the following problems in the book (although they differ in amount and names). To interpret where to find these exercises and practice exercises, look in the back of each chapter. For instance, EX 1-18 is Exercise 1-18 at the back of Chapter 1, EX2-7 is Exercise 2-7 in the back of Chapter 2, PE 6-6A is Practice Exercise 6-6A at the back of Chapter 6, etc. The difficulty of each problem is in parentheses:
1) EX 1-18 (easy)
2) EX2-7 (medium)
3) EX 2-16 (medium)
4) EX 2-23 (easy)
5) EX 3-11 (easy)
6) EX 3-29 (easy)
7) EX 4-12 (medium)
8) EX 4-21 (easy)
9) EX 5-23 (medium)
10) PE 6-2A (medium)
11) PE 6-6A (medium)
12) PE 6-8A (medium)
13) EX 7-18 (medium)

Having trouble connecting to Cengage, even though you purchased the bundle from the publisher. Here's how:

The students are purchasing an epack from the link I sent you. This is the physical print text + the "INSTANT" access code. This means, the code gets applied immediately to their account and is placed on their dashboard. They don't have to wait for a physical code to arrive. They get instant access while they wait for the print text.

At this point, all they will need to do is enter your course key for CengageNOW and they will be right in your course.

So in essence, it looks like students are waiting on something they already have access to on their dashboard.

http://services.cengage.com/ dcs/cengagenow/start/prepare/ register/#/user-guides

This link above has videos and walkthroughs for students on how to register their course key and get into your course. They should have been able to do this anyways without purchasing anything through the grace period available to them.

There is an error in the Indian Valley syllabus for Section 80126. On 9/22, the syllabus says that there is a school holiday and there is no class. THAT IS INCORRECT! It is not a school holiday, and there is class that Monday 9/22/14 at 6:10 - 8pm at IVC Bldg 27, Room 118. Many thanks to Gwyneth who spotted my error!

Hello Students,

I am not available this weekend to help you, but I hope this message helps in some way. The second week of class is over and here are the important things you ought to know:

-Chapter 1 homework. Due Date: TONIGHT, Sunday, August 31 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 7 11pm.

--Chapter 1-2 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, September 7 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 2 homework. Due Date: Sunday, September 7 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 14 11pm.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies. It is assumed that you are familiar with these policies at the outset of the class.

***To demonstrate significant participation in the course, as required by the College for enrollment, please complete Chapter 1 homework and Chapter 2 homework by their respective due dates. Thanks!

If you have purchased the textbook, save the barcode that is attached to the plastic wrapping your looseleaf textbook came in. The ISBN number can be used to access the course material on Cengage in some cases when you cannot sign on any other way. The deadline for using the "free trial" ends next week, so please make arrangements to purchase the textbook and Cengage access.

Anyone leave a pink waterbottle in this past Saturday's class at Kentfield? If so, email me and I will let you know where I left it in the classroom if you would like to retrieve it.

*********************************************************************************************

The first week of class is over and I want to thank you in advance for coming to class and working hard to learn accounting, the language of business! Be patient with yourself, and know that what you are learning now will begin to make some sense in about 2-3 weeks. It's a difficult subject, but I hope to make it easy for you to learn it.

Here are some reminders to help you during these first few weeks:

--For my Wednesday office hour at IVC, I am currently alternating between two classrooms at Bldg 27: from 5:00pm - 5:30pm, I am in Room 116. From 5:30pm - 6pm, I will be in our classroom Room 118. Sorry for the inconvenience.

--Several students have reported problems in obtaining the access code when ordering from the publisher. If you have received your bundle from the publisher, and have had no problems signing on to Cengage, let us know how you did it.

--Several students reported that they needed the course key for the class for Cengage purposes. The course key is located on the Class Overview. Here it is: E-24YEY34RNN8CD

--If I have given you an authorization code to add the course, please add the course this week. The College requires that only registered students attend class, and I will be taking roll to make sure that only registered students are in the class this coming week.

--Attendance is a must during these first few weeks. If you will be absent, please email me in advance, and tell me if you will be making up the class at my other section. I am required to drop those students who do not "significantly participate" in the class. (See FAQ on our class website)

--Register with the Cengage system now. See Links to Enroll in Class at this website for instructions to register in the Cengage system (where all of our work and quizzes are done). If you haven't received your access code, you may register with the system and get it free of charge until 9-7-14. Remember to select "Start Free Trial" when you enroll.

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using Cengage Now. This means that you need to have an Internet connection to do your work. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students Internet access. Both classrooms (Bldg 27, Room 118, and SMN 224) have internet access.

--Be very careful to select the correct bundle (looseleaf textbook and access code) at the bookstore. Select the correct ISBN number
9781285078588, and MAKE SURE THAT THE ACCESS CODE (a blue card in the back of the bundle) is prominently seen. The bookstore sold students bundles without the access code in error. If yours is one of them, return the bundle unopened with your receipt to the bookstore and ask for Joanne Stroud. She will exchange the item for the correct bundle (Hint: buying from the publisher directly is cheaper!) For clarification See Textbook, Materials at this website.

--If you are waiting to purchase your textbook, you have only until 9-7-14 to access the Cengage system using the free trial. After that, you need to use your access code (packaged with your looseleaf text) to access the Cengage system. This means that you must make arrangements QUICKLY to purchase the looseleaf text at the bookstore, or directly from the publisher. I understand that publisher takes about 4 business days to send you the text, but please don't count on this. If, for ANY reason, you cannot access Cengage to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment. To keep up with the reading (if you haven't purchased the looseleaf textbook and access code yet), please use the e-book that is available at Cengage Now when you sign on. It is located under Study Tools.

--Bring textbook, pencils, notebook, and calculator to each class.

--We do the homework in class whenever possible. To that end, bring your laptop, IPad (which need a flash player installed), or even your smart phone to access the Cengage system in class (which has an internet connection). If you prefer working with paper, print out your homework from the Cengage system (remember to do this BEFORE you actually enter the problem in Cengage ("take" it), as you cannot print once you have started the problem) and bring it to class.


Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 1 homework. Due Date: Sunday, August 31 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 7 11pm.

--Chapter 1-2 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, September 7 11pm. No grace period.

--Chapter 2 homework. Due Date: Sunday, September 7 11pm. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 14 11pm.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies. It is assumed that you are familiar with these policies at the outset of the class.

--In person tutoring (Hours to be determined) is available. Tutoring is scheduled by request so students should submit their application early in the semester. The best way to complete an application is online:

http://www.marin.edu/Student_Services/TLC/index.html

Please take advantage of this free service.

Hello Students!

Final grades are now posted to the class website, and have been submitted to the College. Should you have any questions, please feel free to email me. If you enjoyed this learning experience, please recommend my class to others interested in taking accounting. Enjoy the summer break! Best wishes to you!

*********************************************************************************************

Hello Students:

We are nearly at the end of the semester and I just want to share a few reminders and share with you information about the Extra Credit Assignment.

Below is my grading scale based on the POINTS YOU HAVE EARNED. I do not give "+" or "-" grades, ie B+
89.5-100 points = A
79.5-89.49 points = B
69.5-79.49 points = C
59.5-69.49 points = D
below 59.5 points = F

Do not rely upon any percentage shown on Cengage as indicative of your grade. Rather I only use the points as shown for each assignment, including the extra credit, to compute your grade. Remember - for an assignment to count, it must be SUBMITTED - not just saved. Please go back to any work that is still pending, and SUBMIT it.

Unfortunately, I will not be available online to help with homework or extra credit due to a work assignment.

Here are some upcoming due dates. The assignments are available on Cengage:

--Chapter 14 Homework. Grace period ends Sunday, May 18th 11pm (10% deduction)
--Chapter 15 Homework. Due Date: Sunday, May 18th, 11pm. No grace period.
--Chapter 14-15 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, May 18th, 11pm. No grace period.
--Extra Credit Problem Set. Due Date: Sunday, May 18th, 11pm. No grace period.

All work is currently available on Cengage. I encourage you to submit your work in advance of your deadlines, as no exceptions will be made to the deadlines, above.

I will be in Kentfield (Science Math and Nursing Building Room 224) classroom on Saturday, May 17th, at 9:10 am. If you are experiencing any difficulties with homework or extra credit problems and want help, please be there no later than 9:30am.

Should you wish to meet with me in the coming week, I will be in the classroom at IVC campus Bldg 27, Room 116, Monday May 19th at 6:10. If you are not in the classroom at 6:10pm, I will assume that you will not be there.

There are 30 questions in the Extra Credit Problem Set. Each question is worth .67 points.

Doing the extra credit assignment cannot hurt you in any way. I only take your right answers. Wrong answers do not count against you. The extra credit is like any other homework assignment. It has a "Check My Work" feature that allows you to see if you have the right answer. You can submit the assignment an unlimited amount of times until the due date.

Here is an overview of the extra credit exam. There are:
11 easy problems
14 medium problems
5 hard problems.

The problems are arranged in chapter order:
1 problem from Ch 1;
3 from Ch 2;
2 from Ch 3;
2 from Ch 4;
1 from Ch 5;
3 from Ch 6;
2 from Ch 7;
2 from Ch 8;
2 from Ch 9;
2 from Ch 10;
2 from Ch 11;
2 from Ch 12;
1 from Ch 13;
2 from Ch 14;
3 from Ch 15.

The problems are arranged in the following order from the following problems in the book (although they differ in amount and names). To interpret where to find these exercises and practice exercises, look in the back of each chapter. For instance, EX 1-18 is Exercise 1-18 at the back of Chapter 1, EX2-7 is Exercise 2-7 in the back of Chapter 2, PE 6-6A is Practice Exercise 6-6A at the back of Chapter 6, etc. The difficulty of each problem is in parentheses:
1) EX 1-18 (easy)
2) EX2-7 (medium)
3) EX 2-16 (medium)
4) EX 2-23 (easy)
5) EX 3-11 (easy)
6) EX 3-29 (easy)
7) EX 4-12 (medium)
8) EX 4-21 (easy)
9) EX 5-23 (medium)
10) PE 6-2A (medium)
11) PE 6-6A (medium)
12) PE 6-8A (medium)
13) EX 7-18 (medium)
14) EX 7-28 (medium)
15) EX 8-6 (hard)
16) EX 8-27 (medium)
17) EX 9-9 (easy)
18) EX 9-23 (medium)
19) EX 10-12 (medium)
20) EX 10-22 (easy)
21) EX 11-15 (medium)
22) EX 11-24 (easy)
23) EX 12-10 (easy)
24) EX 12-15 (easy)
25) EX 13-7 (hard)
26) EX 14-5 (hard)
27) EX 14-24 (easy)
28) EX 15-13 (hard)
29) EX 15-17 (hard)
30) EX 15-22 (medium)

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SUBMIT (not just save) YOUR HOMEWORK AND QUIZZES WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THEM TO YOUR SATISFACTION ON THE CENGAGE SYSTEM. In the past, a number of students have simply saved their work, and did not submit their work. IT MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE DEADLINES LISTED IN THE SYLLABUS TO BE PART OF YOUR GRADE. YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR HOMEWORK AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF TIMES UNTIL THE DEADLINE. YOU CAN ONLY SUBMIT YOUR QUIZZES ONCE BY THE DEADLINE. (YOU CAN, HOWEVER, TAKE A QUIZ, SAVE IT, AND SUBMIT IT AT A LATER TIME - BUT YOU CAN SUBMIT ONLY ONCE AND ONLY BY THE DEADLINE ABOVE).

Most of the homework problems have example and animated exercises that you can review to help you solve the problem.

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using Cengage Now. This means that you need to have an Internet connection to do your work. Both classrooms have an Internet connection. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students Internet access.

There has been a report of difficulties submitting work. A student has found that the Cengage program does not work well with Internet Explorer 8. She used Firefox browser instead, and submission worked well. Other students report that accessing their work on an Ipad or smart phone gives them error messages. Installing a flashplayer on your Ipad should help. If you have any technical support issues, please use the link called "Quick Cengage Technical Support - please use" that is located at Links to Access Card/Textbook purchase on this website.

All work is currently available on Cengage. I encourage you to submit your work in advance of your deadlines, as no exceptions will be made to the deadlines, above.

I am setting aside class time to help you in solving the extra credit problems that you are having trouble with. These class times are:

Monday, May 12th, 6:10pm, Indian Valley Campus, Building 27, Room 116. Please be in the classroom no later than 6:30pm.

Wednesday, May 14th, 6:10pm, Indian Valley Campus, Building 27, Room 116. Please be in the classroom no later than 6:30pm.

There are 30 questions in the Extra Credit Problem Set. Each question is worth .67 points.

Doing the extra credit assignment cannot hurt you in any way. I only take your right answers. Wrong answers do not count against you. The extra credit is like any other homework assignment. It has a "Check My Work" feature that allows you to see if you have the right answer. You can submit the assignment an unlimited amount of times until the due date.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SUBMIT (not just save) YOUR HOMEWORK AND QUIZZES WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THEM TO YOUR SATISFACTION ON THE CENGAGE SYSTEM. In the past, a number of students have simply saved their work, and did not submit their work. IT MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE DEADLINES LISTED IN THE SYLLABUS TO BE PART OF YOUR GRADE. YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR HOMEWORK AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF TIMES UNTIL THE DEADLINE. YOU CAN ONLY SUBMIT YOUR QUIZZES ONCE BY THE DEADLINE. (YOU CAN, HOWEVER, TAKE A QUIZ, SAVE IT, AND SUBMIT IT AT A LATER TIME - BUT YOU CAN SUBMIT ONLY ONCE AND ONLY BY THE DEADLINE ABOVE).

I am here to help you be successful in this class. We are doing the homework together in class, so please attend class to get all the information/advice/strategies that you need to do the homework. I also have office hours from 8-9am Saturdays on the KFLD campus, Science Math Nursing Rm 224, and 8-9pm Wednesdays on the IVC Campus, Bldg 27, Room 116. Most of the homework problems have example and animated exercises that you can review to help you solve the problem. If you are really stuck, email me and I will try to get back to you within 24 hours.

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using Cengage Now. This means that you need to have an Internet connection to do your work. Both classrooms have an Internet connection. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students Internet access.

There has been a report of difficulties submitting work. A student has found that the Cengage program does not work well with Internet Explorer 8. She used Firefox browser instead, and submission worked well. Other students report that accessing their work on an Ipad or smart phone gives them error messages. Installing a flashplayer on your Ipad should help.

Hello Students:

We are the end of our 8th week of classes, and I just want to share a few reminders. Here are some upcoming due dates. The assignments are available on Cengage:

--Chapter 9 homework. Due Date: Sunday, March 30th, 11pm. Grace period ends Sunday April 6 11pm (10% deduction).

The midterm grading period ends Sunday March 16th. I made a mistake in announcing that it was based on Chapters 1-7 HW and Chapters 1-6 Quizzes. Instead, it is based on Chapters 1-6 HW and Chapters 1-6 Quizzes. No need to rush to do Chapter 7 HW for the midterm grade!

The total points possible for this range of work = 41.16 points. The grading scale is as follows: A= 36.84 and above B= 32.72 to 36.83 C= 28.62 to 32.71 D= 24.49 to 28.60 F= below 24.48 A grade of W means that the student has been withdrawn from the class.

--Chapter 6 homework. Due Date: Tonight, Sunday March 9 11pm. Grace period ends Sunday March 16 11pm (10% deduction)

--Chapter 7 homework. Due Date: Sunday, March 16th, 11pm. Grace period ends Sunday March 23 11pm (10% deduction).

The midterm grading period ends Sunday March 16th. I made a mistake in announcing that it was based on Chapters 1-7 HW and Chapters 1-6 Quizzes. Instead, it is based on Chapters 1-6 HW and Chapters 1-6 Quizzes. No need to rush to do Chapter 7 HW for the midterm grade!

The total points possible for this range of work = 41.16 points. The grading scale is as follows: A= 36.84 and above B= 32.72 to 36.83 C= 28.62 to 32.71 D= 24.49 to 28.60 F= below 24.48 A grade of W means that the student has been withdrawn from the class. Please contact me immediately if you wish to be withdrawn from the class.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SUBMIT (not just save) YOUR HOMEWORK AND QUIZZES WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THEM TO YOUR SATISFACTION ON THE CENGAGE SYSTEM. In the past, a number of students have simply saved their work, and did not submit their work. IT MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE DEADLINES LISTED IN THE SYLLABUS TO BE PART OF YOUR GRADE. YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR HOMEWORK AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF TIMES UNTIL THE DEADLINE. YOU CAN ONLY SUBMIT YOUR QUIZZES ONCE BY THE DEADLINE. (YOU CAN, HOWEVER, TAKE A QUIZ, SAVE IT, AND SUBMIT IT AT A LATER TIME - BUT YOU CAN SUBMIT ONLY ONCE AND ONLY BY THE DEADLINE ABOVE).

I am here to help you be successful in this class. We are doing the homework together in class, so please attend class to get all the information/advice/strategies that you need to do the homework. I also have office hours from 8-9am Saturdays on the KFLD campus, Science Math Nursing Rm 224, and 8-9pm Wednesdays on the IVC Campus, Bldg 27, Room 116. Most of the homework problems have example and animated exercises that you can review to help you solve the problem. If you are really stuck, email me and I will try to get back to you within 24 hours.

--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using Cengage Now. This means that you need to have an Internet connection to do your work. Both classrooms have an Internet connection. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students Internet access.

There has been a report of difficulties submitting work. A student has found that the Cengage program does not work well with Internet Explorer 8. She used Firefox browser instead, and submission worked well. Other students report that accessing their work on an Ipad or smart phone gives them error messages. Installing a flashplayer on your Ipad should help. If you have any technical support issues, please use the link called "Quick Cengage Technical Support - please use" that is located at Links to Access Card/Textbook purchase on this website.

--Bookstore problems: in the past, some students were directed to purchase the wrong book bundle (looseleaf text and access card) by bookstore personnel. It is very important that you choose the correct bundle. At the bookstore, there are two very similar accounting book packages side by side. Mine is the smaller package. The ISBN number is 9781285929095. It contains only the financial accounting looseleaf text. It should be shelved above my course number Bus 112 AND my name (Forsyth). If you are worried that you bought the wrong bundle, DO NOT open the bundle. Instead, bring it to class and I will confirm it.

--If you haven't already done so, please register with Cengage Now today or as soon as possible. To register, navigate to login.cengagebrain.com

(If you have bought the book and access code (that is packaged with the looseleaf text), use the access code to enter the Cengage system. You can no longer use the course key, I believe.

--To keep up with the reading (if you haven't purchased the looseleaf textbook and access code yet), please use the e-book that is available at Cengage Now when you sign on. I believe it is located under Resources, but not sure.

To print out your homework assignments, sign on to Cengage Now to retrieve your personalized homework problems. PLEASE NOTE that you can only print out the assignment before you "take" (enter into) the assignment. The homework assignments are located under Assignments on the Cengage Now system. I will not be providing photocopies of the book examples, as I did with the first chapter. You may also bring your laptop, ipad or smart phone to class (instead of, or in addition to, the printed homework assignment) to access your homework problems on the Cengage system, and solve them in class while we are reviewing them.

The first two weeks of class have ended, and I want to thank you for coming to class and working hard to learn accounting, the language of business! Be patient with yourself, and know that what you are learning now will begin to make some sense in about 2-3 weeks. It's a difficult subject, but I hope to make it easy for you to learn it.

Here are some reminders to help you keep on track during these first few weeks:

--I am here to help you be successful in this class. We are doing the homework together in class, so please attend class to get all the information/advice/strategies that you need to do the homework. I also have office hours from 8-9am Saturdays on the KFLD campus, Science Math Nursing Rm 224, and 8-9pm Wednesdays on the IVC Campus, Bldg 27, Room 116.

If you are really stuck, email me and I will try to get back to you within 24 hours.

--If I have given you an authorization code to add the course, please add the course immediately. The College requires that only registered students attend class, and I will be taking roll to make sure that only registered students are in the class this coming week.

--Bookstore problems: in the past, some students were directed to purchase the wrong book bundle (looseleaf text and access card) by bookstore personnel.

Hello Students!

Final grades are now posted to the class website, and have been submitted to the College. Should you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Please recommend my class to others interested in taking accounting. Enjoy the holidays, and your winter break!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Scheduled Maintenance Notice FOR CENGAGE

On Saturday, December 14th from 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. ET ( 8:30am to 10am PST), Cengage will be conducting scheduled system maintenance. During this time, you may be unable to access your CENGAGE account. For those of you coming to the extra credit review on Saturday, please bring a print-out of the extra credit problems in case you are not able to access Cengage through your smart phone or laptop.

Please review the remaining due dates, below. Please do not wait until the last moment to submit work - there is no extension of time beyond Sunday, Dec. 15th at midnight for any reason (computer crash, emergency, etc.). There is no final for this class.

Remaining due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 14 Homework. Grace period ends Sunday, December 15 midnight (there is no extension of time after this)

--Chapter 15 Homework. Due Date: Sunday, December 15 midnight (no grace period available- no extension of time after this)

--Chapter 14-15 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, December 15 midnight (no grace period available-no extension of time after this)

--Extra Credit. Due Date: Sunday, December 15 midnight (no grace period available-no extension of time after this)

All of the above assignments and quizzes are posted on the Cengage website. Please remember to submit (not just save) assignments when you are ready to submit assignments for grading.

If you are at all confused as to what your current grade is, please email me. Do not rely upon any percentage shown on Cengage. Rather I only use the points as shown for each assignment, including the extra credit, to compute your grade. If you are concerned that you are not computing your point total correctly, please email me before 12/12, and give me 24 hours to get back to you. Remember - for an assignment to count, it must be SUBMITTED - not just saved.

For those of you interested in doing the optional extra credit assignment, please consider coming to either of the following class dates which are devoted solely to helping you with the extra credit. For best results, bring your laptop or smart phone to class so that you can solve your problems right in class. Or bring a print-out of the extra credit problems with you.

--IVC Bldg 27, Room 116, Wednesday 12/11 6:10pm (be in class no later than 6:30pm)

--KFLD Fusselman Hall, Room 110, Saturday 12/14 9:10am (be in class no later than 9:30am)

Review in advance which problems you need help with, as there probably will not be enough time in each class session to cover all 30 problems. If you plan on attending these special sessions, you must be in class by the times noted above.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON TAKING THE EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENT, PLEASE PRINT OUT THE ASSIGNMENT BEFORE ENTERING INTO/TAKING THE ASSIGNMENT. THIS IS YOUR ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO PRINT THE EXTRA CREDIT. ONCE YOU ENTER INTO THE ASSIGNMENT, YOU LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRINT IT OUT.

If you are not interested in help with the extra credit assignment, you need not attend the above class sessions. However, because I am devoting a great deal of class time to the extra credit, and the large amount of problems in the assignment, I cannot respond to email help with regards to this assignment. The extra credit assignment is worth 20 points. The Extra Credit assignment is like your homework assignments - unlimited takes, the "check my work" feature and the points evenly spread among the problems. You can take as much of it or as little of it as you choose. Wrong/blank answers do not hurt your grade. Correct answers only add to your point total.

-Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies. It is assumed that you are familiar with these policies at the outset of the class.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SUBMIT (not just save) YOUR HOMEWORK AND QUIZZES WHEN YOU HAVE FINALLY COMPLETED THEM TO YOUR SATISFACTION ON THE CENGAGE SYSTEM. A number of students have simply saved their work, and have not yet submitted the work. IT MUST BE SUBMITTED TO BE PART OF YOUR GRADE.

****************************************************************************************************************************

We are now in our third week of classes. Here are some reminders to help keep you on track:

--If you haven't already done so, please register with Cengage Now today 9/6. To register, navigate to login.cengagebrain.com

(If you have bought the book and access code (that is packaged with the looseleaf text), use the access code to register. If you haven't bought it yet, then use the course key E-24YE5SGQL8W9S)

--You have until approximately September 7th to use the course key to access the Cengage system. After that, you need to use your access code (packaged with your looseleaf text) to access the Cengage system. This means that you must make arrangements QUICKLY to purchase the looseleaf text at the bookstore, or directly from the publisher. I understand that publisher takes about 4 business days to send you the text, but please don't count on this. If, for ANY reason, you cannot access Cengage to do your work by due date/grace period end date, you will lose the points for that assignment.

--If you will not have your access code by Sept. 7th, it is very important that you do Chapter 1 homework in advance of its due date Sunday, Sept. 8th at midnight; and Chapter 2 Homework as well as Chapter 1-2 Quiz in advance of their due date of Sunday, Sept. 15th at midnight. Sign on to Cengage Now TODAY 9/6 using the course key and complete the homework assignments and quiz TODAY 9/6.

Here are the upcoming due dates that you should be aware of (consult syllabus located on this website):

--Chapter 1 homework. Due Date: Sunday, Sept. 8 midnight. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 15 midnight.

--Chapter 1-2 Quiz. Due Date: Sunday, September 15 midnight. No grace period.

--Chapter 2 homework. Due Date: Sunday, September 15 midnight. Grace Period End date (with 10% deduction): Sunday, Sept. 22 midnight.

--Attendance is a must during these first few weeks. If you will be absent, please email me in advance, and tell me if you will be making up the class at my other section. I am required to drop those students who do not "significantly participate" in the class. (See FAQ on our class website). Significant participation for this semester means attendance at nearly every class, accomplishment of the following assignments (Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 Homework, Chapter 1-2 Quiz) by the Due Date (not grace period) and purchase of the course materials (textbook and access card) as evidenced by your registration in the Cengage system. If you have not done these assignments, purchased the course materials, and registered in the Cengage system you may be dropped from the class.

--To keep up with the reading (if you haven't purchased the looseleaf textbook and access code yet), please use the e-book that is available at Cengage Now when you sign on. I believe it is located under Study Tools.

--Bring your Chapter homework to class so that you can solve your individualized homework problems with us as we do them in class using the book examples. To print out your Chapter homework, sign on to Cengage Now to retrieve your personalized homework problems. The homework assignments are located under Assignments on the Cengage Now system. I will not be providing photocopies of the book examples, as I did with the first chapter.


--All homework, quizzes, and the Extra Credit are to be done using Cengage Now. This means that you need to have an Internet connection to do your work. The IVC campus has an Internet cafe, and the KFLD campus has the Learning Center computer lab - both of which offer students Internet access.

-- Bring textbook, calculator, notebook and pencils to class.

--Please read FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) and FAQ1 on this website to get to know course policies. It is assumed that you are familiar with these policies at the outset of the class.

--In person tutoring (Hours to be determined) is at LC 160 on the Kentfield Campus, and Bldg 17 on the IVC campus. Tutoring is scheduled by request so students should submit their application early in the semester. The best way to complete an application is online:
