As the 21st century ushers in the era of Common Core State Standards, the goal of teaching expands from a basic transmission of facts to the development of cognitive skills that equip students to achieve more of their unique potential. This seminal book focuses on five essential concepts from neuroeducation that should underlie all teaching decisions: (1) neuroplasticity, findings that the structure and function of the brain change in response to learning; (2) potential, the capacity for all students to make learning gains; (3) malleable intelligence, which stands in opposition to traditional views of fixed intellect; (4) the Body-Brain System, the role of physical fitness, healthy nutrition, and positive emotions in facilitating learning; and (5) metacognition, teaching students to think about their thinking. To support classroom implementation, these discussions include vignettes, examples, teaching strategies, reflective questions, and connections between brain-based learning principles and the Common Core. The text concludes by unmasking myths and misconceptions that may obscure these core concepts.

How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks

Too often option payoffs are merely based on a two-dimensional approach consisting of a P&L versus underlying at expiry as is evident in most existing literature. This is misleading as the Greeks can make or break a strategy during its lifetime. In How to Calculate the Value of Options Prices and their Greeks, emphasis is placed on a deep and thorough understanding of the Greeks (first, second and third order), informing the reader how the pay-off of an option (strategy) will be influenced by time, underlying, strike and volatility. The book fully explains the distribution of the Greeks along a range of strikes (the whole range wherein an option has optionality), assisting the reader to understand how the Greeks are changing in relation to different strikes, but also in relation to time, volatility and underlying. Further it will discuss many trading strategies such as spreads, straddle, strangle, butterflies, kurtosis, vega, and convexity to name but a few. The author discusses how hedging strategies on the gamma can make or break a P&L. The text begins by guiding the reader through the more basic options, such as the put-call parity towards the concepts of probability distribution and volatility. The book then covers the main Greeks (delta, gamma vega and theta) followed by an in-depth discussion of several trading strategies including a four dimensional approach of P&L versus strike, underlying, volatility and time to maturity.
