Educational Philosophy: To foster a learning environment that helps the student to realize his/her potential. In this accounting course we will discuss topics as a group and work out homework problems as a group. The student will complete the problems outside of the course and bring solutions to the class so that we can all intelligently work through the problems. Students will demonstrate their learning through examinations and class participation. Students are encouraged to bring new ideas to the course.
