Students investigate financial mathematics as applied to the stock market, modeling for a business, banking services and consumer credit, auto and home loans, investment plans for retirement, and other applications. Developing on the functions learned in Algebra II, students are able to apply models to real-world financial problems. Using the computer and the TI 83/84 Finance Applications, students work on problems that they will eventually encounter after high school. Algebra II is a prerequisite for this course.
