Did You Know About Consumer Math?

Did you know about consumer math?

This is one of the subjects I am teaching to my son. I think high school senior year is the perfect time for this and I think it should be a required subject. Much of it he has at least heard of, but I think it's important to share the information with him. Some of it he is already using, other info he won't use for years to come. But at least he will have heard it and maybe won't have to learn his financial future in such a hard way as some kids do. I really like the practical approach and try to implement what he is learning in this subject to everyday living.

Good idea. I like to see different approaches to mathematics. A different approach may strike a resonant chord in someone.

he really enjoys watching the Dave Ramsey seminar on video! I told my daughter that even if she stays in public school we will require her to do some kind of consumer math, I think it is really helpful and important.
