  10. 10. The Black Scholes Model • Interestingly, it was rejected the first two times they submitted it for publication. • In the same year that they published the article on option pricing theory (1973), the Chicago Board Options Exchange opened and provided the perfect testing ground for the practical implementation of the Black- Scholes model. • Within six months of the original publication of the Black- Scholes formula, it had become so widely used by traders at the CBOE that Texas Instruments produced a handheld calculator pre-programmed to produce Black- Scholes option prices and hedge ratios. #TI4GS

DayOne: Journaling app to keep a class by class teaching diary of improvements for next time I teach the class. – Did a lecture run long? – Did a particular example confuse not clarify? – Was a HW/midterm/final question poorly worded? 7. Smk Link Emerald Presenter #TI4GS
  19. 19. What makes your teaching better than anyone else? 1. I read my evaluations carefully 2. I over prepare for each lecture, even if it is the 100th time I’ve done it – Study beforehand, Improve materials every time 3. I demonstrate that I want to be teaching the class – I am enthusiastic about the material – I dress according to business norms – I show up and start class on time. – I deliver what I promise – I don’t change the rules midstream 4. I give students respect – I am flexible if it is fair, accommodating, but not weak. – I always say “why” I have a rule or policy. #TI4GS
  20. 20. What other advice would you give • Find the best teacher in your area, better yet if it is the class you teach, then go sit in for a semester. • Decide what topic over the semester you think is the coolest, most interesting, most surprising and devise the lecture of the year for that. Have a intro, and body and and a conclusion. #TI4GS
  21. 21. Teaching is fun if you are doing it right #TI4GS
  22. 22. • Snag it, camtasia • My finance lab • Treadmill • Dropbox • Day one • Clicker • Dress up, prepare for each lecture each time, behave like you want to be there and want what’s best for the students., read your teaching evals, be enthusiastic, Oxygen mask (best advice), keep a class by class teaching log of improvements needed next year #TI4GS
