**FIN 450 Grand Canyon Week 1 Discussion 1**

This discussion thread will be used to discuss the practice problems completed in this module and engage in collaborative learning. Please review each week’s Tips and Clues.

Students are expected to make an opening post that is an individual summary of the problem in the current week’s Assignment that presents the greatest challenge to them. You only are required to post one problem but may post more than one if desired by adding a new thread for each problem. However, it is recommended that students engage in a discussion already established before doing so.

Students will then engage in a discussion addressing: how to solve the problem; what tables, charts, schedules, graphs, etc. might be useful in working out the solution; what formulas can be applied or need to be developed; what core course Resources can be used; etc. Please do not post Answers within this forum. The instructor will respond to questions that are specific or comment if there are problems. It is more like a chat room for students to work out challenges much like they might do in a formal classroom environment. Students will be graded on their participation, based on the quality and content of substantive posts.
