Guide Students with a Proven Learning Goal System
Proven Learning Goal System: To guide students through the material, this edition continues to enhance its proven learning goal system, which integrates pedagogy with concepts and practical applications.
Overarching Organization: A carefully designed framework helps students make connections. It conceptually links the firm’s actions and its value, as determined in the financial market.
Provide Real, Hands-on Examples and Connections
Personal Finance Connection: Several features show students the value of applying financial principles and techniques to their personal lives:
International Considerations: In today’s world international considerations are essential to the study of business in general–and finance in particular. As in prior editions, discussions of international dimensions are integrated throughout the chapters, learning goals, and end-of-chapter content.
NEW End-of-Chapter Excel Review Questions: These ask readers to complete problems using a simulated Excel spreadsheet in MyFinanceLab that resemble examples demonstrated in the corresponding section. These problems simulate the experience of building an Excel spreadsheet solution and provide students with Excel tutorials to help develop this important business skill.
AAA Spreadsheet Exercise in each chapter: These give students an opportunity to use Excel® software to create one or more spreadsheets with which to analyze a financial problem. The spreadsheet to be created often is modeled on a table or Excel screenshot located in the chapter. Students can access working versions of the Excel screenshots in MyFinanceLab.
In Practice boxes: Insights into important topics in managerial finance are offered through the experiences of real companies, both large and small. There are three categories of In Practice boxes:
NEW Matter of Fact box topics, including:
Key equations: Found in green boxes throughout the text, these equations help readers identify the most important mathematical relationships. The variables used in these equations are, for convenience, printed on the front endpapers of the book.
Review Questions: Placed at the end of each major text section, these questions challenge readers to stop and test their understanding of key concepts, tools, techniques, and practices before moving on to the next section.
Opener-in-Review questions at the end of each chapter revisit the opening vignette and ask students to apply lessons from the chapter to that business situation.
Self-Test Problems, keyed to the learning goals, give readers an opportunity to strengthen their understanding of topics by doing a sample problem. For reinforcement, solutions to the Self-Test Problems appear in the appendix at the back of the book.
Warm-Up Exercises follow the Self-Test Problems. These short, numerical exercises give students practice in applying tools and techniques presented in the chapter.
Comprehensive Problems, keyed to the learning goals, are longer and more complex than the Warm-Up Exercises. In this section, instructors will find multiple problems that address the important concepts, tools, and techniques in the chapter.
An Integrative Case at the end of each part of the book challenges students to use what they have learned over the course of several chapters.
Additional chapter resources, such as Chapter Cases, Group Exercises, Critical Thinking Problems, and numerous online resources for student learning and assessment are available in MyFinanceLab at www.myfinancelab.com.
NEW TVM Tables Supplement is a self-contained online supplement which explains how the reader should use the interest rate factors and documents how the in-chapter examples can be solved using the interest rate factors. An IRF icon appears to indicate which examples can be solved using the interest rate factors.
