Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications: A 3rd/4th Year Alternative for Struggling Students

The need for quantitative financial literacy and numeracy education in our schools is undeniable. The goal of this session is to offer teachers a rationale and framework for creating and teaching a quantitative financial literacy mathematics course that is applications-oriented and technology-dependent. Modeling finance using advanced algebra assists students in seeing the relevance of the mathematics they are learning.

The need for quantitative financial literacy and numeracy education in our schools is undeniable. The goal of this session is to offer teachers a rationale and framework for creating and teaching a quantitative financial literacy mathematics course that is applications-oriented and technology-dependent. Modeling finance using advanced algebra assists students in seeing the relevance of the mathematics they are learning.

In this webinar replay, you will learn:

  • Methods to introduce the finance, build strength in the mathematics, and assist in making that mathematics transferrable to other contexts.
  • How math can be explored in the contexts of discretionary expenses, banking, credit, auto ownership, employment, taxes, housing, investing, entrepreneurship, retirement, and budgeting.
  • What to tell students when they ask: “When are we ever going to use this?” – “Every day of your lives!”
