Financial Algebra (Sem 1)Â is an onlineÂ semester-long mathematics interest course designed to help students make connections between Algebra, Geometry and real world applications to Finance. In this course, students are actively engaged in their learning as they build conceptual understanding of algebraic and geometric representations of Financial Mathematics. Further, students recognize that modeling the real world could be complicated; there is not always one right answer, but a range of acceptable solutions. Students routinely explore financial problems using graphing calculators and on-line financial resources. Students become proficient in knowing where to find and how to use the appropriate resource that best supports their needs. Student's ability to estimate and look for reasonable solutions to problems is a critical skill in ascertaining the validity and reliability of computer and calculator resources.
