Use this key to translate your scores on the strip of paper:

Exam 1 = Exam 1 Score (out of 100)

Exam 2 = Exam 2 Score (out of 100)

HW+F4 = Homework + Final 4 score (out of 50)

Ex3 P1 = Exam 3 Part 1 take-home score (out of 100)

Ex3 P2 = Exam 3 Part 2 in-class score (out of 100)

Overall = Overall score (out of 100)

**[highlight color=”options: yellow, black”]Exam 3 on Mon, Apr 25[/highlight]**

Part 1 Take Home Instructions:

**Software**: Python or Sheets/Excel**Data**: S&P 500 Historical Returns**Simulation**: Stock Market Investment Returns- Randomly sample the S&P 500 Historical Returns to simulate stock market returns. Assume the historical return data are normally distributed.
- Use a 40-year investment time horizon.
- Start with a $10,000 balance.
- Run a Monte Carlo simulation to generate 500 ending investment balances.
- Find the mean and standard deviation of your ending balances.
- Generate a histogram displaying the distribution of your ending balances.

**Print 1 Page**with your (1) name, (2) section, (3) mean and standard deviation of ending balances, and (4) the histogram displaying the distribution of your ending balances. Bring your 1-page print out to your demo.**Demo**: [highlight color=”options: yellow, black”]You must demonstrate your Python program or Sheets/Excel worksheet to me**in person**[/highlight]. Be prepared to explain your simulation, answer questions and make (or allow me to make) modifications to your program or worksheet to test alternative parameters (e.g., different investment time horizon, different starting balance, different number of simulations, etc).**Due Date**: Yesterday. Just kidding. But in business clients always want everythingand prefer to pay**yesterday**. So get used to it. [highlight color=”options: yellow, black”]Demo with 1-page printout due on or before class on Apr 27[/highlight]. Demo as soon as you’re ready. This week is better than next week. I will have additional office hours TTh 2:30-4:30pm this week and next. Regular office hours are MW 12:30-2:30, 4:00-4:30pm.**tomorrow**

Wed Apr 13

Review:

- Multiple Regression in Python

Presentation:

- Monte Carlo Simulation
- Resources
- Sample Code

Assignment:

- Create a simple Monte Carlo Simulation with Python
- Simulate a simple Dice Game:
- Roll 2-7, lose
- Roll 8-12, win
- Start with $100
- bet $1 per roll (win pays $1, loss takes $1 bet)
- roll 100 times and find ending balance (could be negative)
- simulate 100 outcomes (10,000 total rolls of the dice)

- Report the mean, median, and standard deviation of your final balances
- Repeat using 1,000 rolls per outcome (100,000 total rolls of the dice) and report the mean, median and standard deviation of final outcomes

[highlight color=”options: yellow, black”]Here’s some python code to help you get going (and plain text below): [/highlight]

import random

def rollDice():

roll = random.randint(1,6)

return roll

j = 0

rollcount = 0

rolls = []

while j < 100:

i = 0

j = j + 1

while i < 100:

i = i + 1

result = rollDice()

rolls.append(result)

rollcount += 1

import scipy

mr = scipy.mean(rolls)

print(“Total rolls = “)

print rollcount

print(“Mean roll = “)

print mr
