Course title

Mathematics for Personal Finance



Course description

Mathematics for Personal Finance is a mathematical modeling course that is algebra-based, applications-oriented, and technology-dependent. The course addresses college preparatory mathematics topics from Advanced Algebra, Statistics and Probability, under four financial umbrellas: “Saving and Budgeting”, “Credit and Debt”, “Financial Planning and Insurance”, and “Income, Taxes and Giving”. The course allows students to experience the interrelatedness of mathematical topics, find patterns, make conjectures, and extrapolate from known situations to unknown situations. The mathematics topics contained in this course are introduced, developed, and applied in an as-needed format in the financial settings covered. Students are encouraged to use a variety of problem-solving skills and strategies in real-world contexts, and to question outcomes using mathematical analysis and data to support their findings. The course offers students multiple opportunities to use, construct, question, model, and interpret financial situations through symbolic algebraic, graphical, and verbal representations
