All of this is rather complicated. In groups of 3 or 4, try to explain the causes of the 1929 stock market crash, using the vocabulary you acquired in this unit in a single paragraph. Input your paragraph here.
Part 3: the 2008 crash
I will be absent on Monday and Tuesday of next week to take part in the Gr 11 IB Geography field-trip in Shimoda.
You will have both days to work on this project (TSC A & D) and you will present your findings on front of the class on Friday March 25.
Read Windsor p. 47 to 57, considering the following IB learning outcomes.
Discuss the reasons for and consequences of the relocation of polluting industries (such as some TNCs) and waste disposal (such as ICT, chemical and nuclear waste) to countries with weaker environmental controls and safety regulations. (review from Coast unit – Somalia Chemical Waste – and China e-waste)
Describe one major pollution event affecting more than one country and examine the consequences of and responses to this event. (Review from Hazard unit – BP oil spill…but be careful…)
Examine the role of one international civil society organization in fostering improved environmental management.
Examine the relationship between coastal processes (tides, wave action, littoral drift, wind action), lithology, subaerial processes and different coastal landforms. Identify the major landforms of beaches, dunes and cliffs along advancing and retreating coasts.
For the next week, classes will be divided into one period of lectures, and one period where you will be required to read Michael Hill’s Coasts and Coastal Management, and answer the review questions in preparation to your IA, as well as Codrington p. 245 to 263.
Review questions should be answered as IB paper 2 short answer questions worth 3, 4 or 5 points. You be the judge…
What is the differences between goods and services?
What are interest rates?
In groups, answer one of the following question. You will present to the class with a list of 5 to 10 important vocabulary words to remember. List these words, with definitions here.
What is the stock market?
What are shares?
Why should we invest our money in shares rather than put it in a bank?
How can investing in the correct stocks make me money?
What is meant by a publicly listed company?
Now that you have an idea of how it works:
Pick 5 stocks by typing in the name of a company – Make a copy of this document and hyperlink your document here
After you’ve decided on 5 stocks that you might be interested in, find the following for each one:
52-Wk High shows the highest selling price of the stock in the last 52 weeks.
52-Wk Low shows the lowest selling price of the stock in the last 52 weeks.
Stock column gives the full name of the company.
Sym is the symbol used by the company on the ticker reports generated by the stock exchanges that track the trading of each stock.
Volume lists the number of shares sold (in hundreds).
Last shows the stock’s price at close of business yesterday.
What does a 4.6% dividend yield mean?
If for example, I own 1000 shares of a stock that has a dividend yield of 4.6%, what does that mean?
It means that at the current trading price of that stock, you will earn 4.6% of that price as a dividend. So if the stock CURRENTLY trades at $100 per share, that means you get $4.60 per year per share. If you have 1000 shares, that equals $4,600 per year.
