This class is designed to prepare 9–12 students to make wise financial
decisions through the study of Consumer Math. They will be instructed
about credit card charges, taxes, interest on loans and savings,
personal banking, and costs of transportation, food, clothing,
utilities, and insurance. It also includes instruction about filling out
tax forms. The most important goal is the development of a biblical
foundation that puts math in the proper perspective for a Christian.
Second in importance is the development of the reasoning and
problem-solving skills essential throughout life. Third is the
development of general knowledge and skills needed for performing the
necessary functions in life that require mathematical processes.
