Newest Class: Financial Literacy
In this new math course you will learn to connect algebra to what’s going on in your life. Since you are earning, spending, saving and investing now and will be throughout the rest of your life, it’s good to understand finance in mathematical terms and to gain confidence in your ability to manage money. The problems are applications-based and use real-life scenarios.
The course reviews and strengthens your algebra mechanics and problem-solving skills, while at the same time teaching you selected advanced mathematics topics. This course will satisfy your third year (Algebra II equivalent) of math as long as you have passed Algebra I and are taking or have passed Geometry. You must have your parents’ permission to take this in place of Algebra II. This is a two-part course and will be offered each term.
