•
If no CD-Rom, replacement disks can be purchased for $5 approx. Email me for this.
Keep the CD-Rom in a hard case – they break easily.
•
2014 MASA – Revision Guide – will be ordered via the school
• Graphics calculators
– I highly recommend Texas or CASIO – textbook instructions are easy to follow and
only cater for the TI and CASIO.
– Some will be available second hand through school, but get in quick.
– You will also get the opportunity to purchase a new Texas or Casio through the school
early next year. See Lisa Lanchester for ordering forms.

• Folders
– Devise a system for storing all lecture and tutorial handouts. (start with this sheet)
– Good organisation is critical, especially when it comes to test and exam revision.
– How will you store your class/textbook exercises? Notebook or loose sheets – sort this
out before we begin in 2015.
• Folios
– All assessed work will be kept, and handed in at the end of the year for moderation.
– It will consist of 6 tests and 3 investigations plus an external 2 hour examination at the
end of the year.
• Email – [email protected]
•
All assessment items are set and marked by Anna. The work is moderated by an external
moderation panel at the end of the year to ensure uniform standards across the state.
• USC Online Resource

All lecture and tutorial notes will be promptly loaded onto the site.

Read pages 378 to 383 of the textbook.
This is background reading to get you started. We will discuss all of this in the first few lectures next year.
If you don’t yet have access to the textbook, email me and I will send the pages to you.
•
Access the Australian Stock Exchange website www.asx.com.au
Spend some time familiarising your-self with this. You can access the website for each company through
this site. In particular follow the links…. Education and resources…..online courses….view all shares
courses, that are very good for understanding the basic working of the ASX
•
Start to follow financial reports in the media and the daily newspapers. You may get some ideas for
your companies for the first Investigation.
•
You will need to select 2 companies that are currently trading on the ASX.
•
This will be part of your first Investigation early in Term 1, but that will all be explained in the first
lectures of 2014.
•
Other very useful web-sites are www.tradingroom.com.au, www.sharedividends.com.au and
http://au.finance.yahoo.com/
