What are the causes of the time value of money? In other words, why would you prefer to receive $1000 today rather than wait and receive $1000 one year from now?

For the first part of the discussion post, list all the potential explanations you can think of for the time value of money. For each cause, write a sentence or two about how it explains your preference for money today rather than money at some future date. Let’s see how many different explanations we can uncover.

For the second part of the discussion post, imagine that I promise to pay you either $1000 today or some different amount of money one year from now. How much would I have to promise to pay you in one year for you to choose to forego the $1000 today and wait one year for the cash? Explain how you came up with the value you would need to receive in order to choose to wait.
Extra Credit Dance Option 1: Ballet de Monterrey
The first extra credit option is a video of a performance by the Ballet de Monterrey in Mexico. They present a series of pas de deux and end with a group piece. For this video, you should not write about every pas de deux. That would be too little about too many different things to write about. Just focus on one or two duets and the final group section. But please watch the entire performance. The complete performance is about 45 minutes. Feel free to watch the video in chunks. Take breaks to write notes or reactions or just to let your brain rest. I think it is harder to watch dance on video for long periods than it is to watch it live. If you watch the whole video and write about it, it will serve as an extra-credit assignment. Please first read the Instructions for the
Recorded Dance Performance Description.

For this option, you have two dances to watch, both performed by the same dance company but choreographed by two different people. You must watch and write about both dances for this option.
The first dance is called "Memoria"
(Links to an external site.)
and was choreographed by Alvin Ailey himself. It lasts about 28 minutes.
The second dance is called "Episodes"
(Links to an external site.)
and was choreographed by Ulysses Dove, a former dancer in the Ailey company. It lasts about 24 minutes.
Both videos begin with brief introductions which may be helpful in understanding the dances.
The third extra credit option is a video of a dance called, "Story/Time" choreographed by Bill T. Jones. The complete dance is about 61 minutes. You should write about something from the beginning, the middle, and the end. Feel free to watch the video in chunks. Take a break in the middle to write notes or reactions or just to let your brain rest. I think it is harder to watch dance on video for long periods than it is to watch it live.
If you watch the whole video and write about it, it will serve as an extra-credit assignment. Please first read the Instructions for the Recorded Dance Performance
Description.

Suite for Five" solo and trio, discussion
board
These clips are of the opening solo and the trio section from a dance called "Suite for Five" by Merce Cunningham. (A trio is a dance or a part of a dance for three people. A solo is for one person.) After you watch both clips, please write some thoughts about them, just like you did with the "Apollo" and "Cave of the Heart" videos. You can write about what interested you, what you thought was important, or what surprised you. If you aren't sure what to write, you can always just describe what you saw and heard.
This time, your comments will be visible to other students in the course.

Finale from "Diamonds," Discussion Board
40
The Paris Opera Ballet performs "Diamonds," the third section of the complete ballet,
Jewels (1967) by George Balanchine.
Finale is a word used in music and sometimes in dance to indicate the final section of
the performance. You often hear the phrase "grand finale" because endings are often
large and flashy.
"Diamonds" finalé (11 minutes)
Please watch this video clip showing the ending of the ballet "Diamonds." Then try to
write some observations, reactions, and/or descriptions continuously for at least two
minutes.

"Concerto" was choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan for the Royal Ballet of the United
Kingdom. The music is by Dmitri Shostakovich. This performance of the Royal Ballet
was published in 2010.
Please watch the first part of the ballet. Then set your timer for 2 minutes and write some thoughts about the video.
"Concerto, part 1" Link to the first movement of the ballet (9:00 mins)

Reflective Essay Instructions

We all respond to art, including dance, in our own way, and that individual response is an

important part of the art experience. However, for much of the course, I have asked you to focus

on other aspects of dance, such as

the contrasting goals and values of different artistic

philosophies.

The time value of money (TVM) is the concept that a sum of money is worth more now than the same sum will be at a future date due to its earnings potential in the interim. The time value of money is a core principle of finance. A sum of money in the hand has greater value than the same sum to be paid in the future.
