All projects must be typed, well-organized, and neatly presented.  All work must be shown and clearly explained.

Due Date
Credit Card (Group) Wed., 9/18/02
Car Loan/Lease (Group) Mon. 10/7/02
 House Project (Group)

This is a very large, involved project.   Start it EARLY so you have time to ask questions and check answers before the due date.   Because it is such a substantial project, it will count as two projects for grading purposes. Also, since you have almost a whole month to work on this project, it is possible that it will overlap with other (less comprehensive) projects, such as doing matrices on the computer, or a survey project. This is another reason to get it done early.

Part 1:  Basic Information Chart and Mortgage Program Chart for a 30 year 1 point loan.  Due: Mon. 10/21/02

Part 2:  The whole project.  Due:  Mon. 11/04/02

Amortization Schedules (Individual)

Section 5.4 computer problems 42, 43-49 odd-- do these using  the Amortization Schedule Calculator.  When you use the Amortization schedule calculator, the starting month should be January, 2003, and "Extra payment" should be $0.

Here is an example of what a problem should look like: Amortization Example

NOTE:  These are done individually, NOT in groups, but this counts as a project.

Survey (Group)
Lottery Project (Group)


Matrices (Individual)
 Ranking of Poker Hands (Group)


Extra Credit Paper  (Optional) See project description for dates.

1.  See if someone in your study group was able to print the file you want and make a photocopy of it.

2.  Try using one of the lab computers in case the problem is with how your own computer is configured.

3.  Using Explorer, right click on the link, select "save target as", then save the file to your home computer.  You should be able to open and print it from there.
