Students apply what they learned in Algebra 1 and Geometry to topics including personal income; taxes; checking and savings accounts; credit; loans and payments; car leasing and purchasing; home mortgages; stocks; insurance; and retirement planning.††
The course is designed to develop a strong foundation in logical thinking and problem solving that will enable students to make informed decisions regarding matters of money and finance in their daily lives.
