Assignment can be used to assess understanding of investing concepts. Students use both knowledge and creativity to design a slide show of terms that relate to investing. *See Resource Library for attachments (rubric and student example).
Explore tunneling splitting in double well potentials. This classic problem describes many physical systems, including covalent bonds, Josephson junctions, and two-state systems such as spin 1/2 particles and ammonia molecules.

Introduction to investments and corporate finance. Topics include: project and company valuation, risk and return in capital markets, the pricing of stocks and bonds, corporate financing and dividend policy, the cost of capital, and financial options. Subject provides a broad overview of both theory and practice. Restricted to Management of Technology students. Financial Management studies corporate finance and capital markets, emphasizing the financial aspects of managerial decisions. It touches on all areas of finance, including the valuation of real and financial assets, risk management and financial derivatives, the trade-off between risk and expected return, and corporate financing and dividend policy. The course draws heavily on empirical research to help guide managerial decisions.
Inorganic chemistry is a division of chemistry that studies metals, their compounds, and their reactivity. Metal atoms can be bound to other metal atoms in alloys or metal clusters, to nonmetal elements in crystalline rocks, or to small organic molecules, such as a cyclopentadienyl anion in ferrocene. These metal atoms can also be part of large biological molecules, as in the case of iron in hemoglobin (oxygen-carrier protein in the blood). Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Describe nuclear charge and calculate effective nuclear charge in terms of Slater's rules; Demonstrate an understanding of trends in the periodic table; Describe the bonding between atoms in terms of valence bond theory; Describe inorganic structures by using valence shell electron pair repulsion theory; Identify the nomenclature rules of coordination compounds; Demonstrate an understanding of crystal structures, lattice energies, and different types of unit cells; Explain the electronic structure of solids, the concept of band gap energy, and how this band gap determines the electronic properties (insulator, conductor, and semiconductor) of solid materials; Describe general trends in the reactivity of elements within Groups I through VII. (Chemistry 107)
Students will predict bond polarity using electron negativity values; indicate polarity with a polar arrow or partial charges; rank bonds in order of polarity; and predict molecular polarity using bond polarity and molecular shape.
Explore molecule shapes by building molecules in 3D! How does molecule shape change with different numbers of bonds and electron pairs? Find out by adding single, double or triple bonds and lone pairs to the central atom. Then, compare the model to real molecules!
