CFA® Institute’s Quantitative Methods curriculum introduces the Time Value of Money (TVM), Organizing, Visualizing, & Describing Data, Presentation Concepts, Common Probability Distributions, Sampling & Estimation, Hypothesis Testing, and Introduction to Linear Regression.

Not only on how to use the functions in the calculators but how to set them up for efficient use and some helpful hints on how certain functions can be used in different ways to be more useful.
