Last week we studied the Accounting Equation: Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity. Sandra, can you tell me what an asset is? That's right! An asset is anything of value that is owned. How about a liability? Mary, do you remember? Very good! A liability is a claim of a creditor on your assets. And finally, Mark, tell us what is owner's equity. All right! Owner's equity is the owner's claims to the assets.
So today we are going to learn two terms that you will use your whole life: Debit and Credit. How many of you have your own bank accounts? Good, all but two of you. Have any of you noticed the words "debit" and "credit" on your bank statements? Does anyone have a credit card like Visa or maybe a gas card? OK, only three of you. Have you noticed the words "debit" and "credit" on your monthly statement?
Understanding these two terms will aid you in interpreting your financial information whether you are a ditch digger or an accountant. You will see these words used on bank statements, credit card bills, stock brokerage accounts, and all sorts of financial statements.
OBJECTIVE--TSWBAT understand that a debit increases an Asset account and decreases Liability and Capital accounts; and a credit increases Liability and Capital accounts and decreases an Asset account.
