Prerequisite: This course is only for students that have not successfully passed three years of math
Grade Level: 12
Students will learn concepts and problem-solving techniques necessary to successfully deal with consumer and career applications. Students will work on authentic, application-based math problems to make connections between classroom content and students’ lives. Topics include managing personal finances and understanding financial decision-making in a variety of scenarios by using math to make informed post-secondary decisions.
Students may take one semester if needed to complete the three-year graduation requirement with the successful completion of 2.5 years of math. After the first semester’s successful completion of Consumer Math, they could take an additional math transitional course in an attempt to gain the math portability code. Applied Mathematics would be the suggested second-semester course.
