Classroom Behavior

Given the small size of the class this semester, I am pleased for classroom discussions to be more frequent and less formal than might be required with a large group of students. In particular, I am pleased to have you exchange ideas and engage is classroom discussion with we and with your classmates on a regular basis (like each week).However, I would like to request that you make it possible for everyone in the class to share fully in your contributions to these discussions. In particular, I am going to insist that you refrain from passing notes to one another during class and that private conversations during class be of limited duration and very rare. If you have something to say it should be important enough to share with everyone in the class. Thanks.

Class Meetings

BA 4348 will meet on Wednesday evenings in SM 2.902 from 7:00-9:50 PM. During our first class meeting, on January 14, I plan to provide a brief overview of the course, along with an introductory lecture on the role of derivative instruments in managing corporate risks.

Required Textbook

The required textbook for the course is the Fourth Edition of Fundamentals of Futures and Options Markets by John Hull. In addition, there will be a number of Journal articles listed on the syllabus. The assigned journal articles are available in the McDermott library.

Classroom Materials

During the semester, I plan to make lecture notes, spreadsheet valuation templates, and detailed homework solutions to assigned homework available on this Webb location. Although some of this material is currently listed below, these materials will be revised extensively prior to becoming available here on the Webb page. I hope to make the lecture notes for the upcoming week available by Tuesday at 7 PM. As you might expect, suggested solutions for the required homework will be unavailabe until after the due date for the assignment.

To Download Lecture Notes and Homework Solutions

Click on the highlighted file name to download the lecture notes and homework solutions listed below. Due to the inclusion of a significant number of formulas and equations in the lecture notes and homework solutions, these documents have been saved in a format which you may be unable to view from my Webb page. However, all of these documents can be downloaded to your PC. Once you have the document on your PC, you may examine the document visually using Word, Word Perfect, or other word processing packages and/or print out a copy for yourself. Due to a change in the format relative to the format used to create these documents, I apologize in advance for the fact that some of the original pages may require an additional page when printed out.
