As an educator, I always cringe when I hear students talking among themselves and asking, "When will I ever use this?!"

Students will improve both their literacy and mathematical skills while applying those skills to real-life scenarios they will encounter in their adult lives.
I have been teaching consumer math in the format of personal finance in high schools for 20 years.
I will be giving out enrichment and practice problems students can do independently each week to ensure I know the student is learning. If a student is taking this class for a grade or credit, they will need to do the homework for assessment.
Learners should come with paper, a writing utensil, and a calculator. All other supplies will be provided in the classroom for each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will not be formally assessing the students, but if you need me to do a formal assessment, please let me know, and I will create a grading rubric for your student.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be using materials from NGPF (Next Gen Personal Finance) and NEFE (National Endowment for Financial Education) High School Financial Planning Program, both with permission.
