Critical Thinking Activities–EXTRA CREDIT

  1. The chart of accounts is like any numbering system in that it is a process of grouping data in a specific way. To demonstrate this, list various numbering systems and define what type of data the system is used to organize. For example, the Dewey Decimal system is a way of organizing books in a library. Street addresses are a way of identifying specific houses on a street.
  2. Prepare a chart of accounts for a business of your own choosing or to use the chart of accounts prepared in Learning Activity 1. List two source documents that could be used as evidence of amounts shown in those accounts. Source documents are EXTREMELY important. If the business is audited, the source documents may be used to prove the numbers on the tax return.
