Consumer Math

We have a new high school math course. It’s a full 180-day course. The focus is consumer math, but also covers many practical, real-world math applications.

Although the course is mainly based on online textbooks, there are some fun extras mixed in. They will spend one lesson playing a game as an Uber driver, trying to actually get the bills paid. In another lesson they will run a magic show and try to make a profit as they work to make it to Vegas. There are some mini-units on cryptocurrency, economics, philanthropy and more.

This is intended for high school. The daily lessons are expected to take 40 minutes on average. There is a note a couple of weeks into the course about how to adapt lessons if they are taking longer than an hour. This is a new course, so we’d be happy for feedback on the experience.

Check out the course. There is no offline version of the course at this time.

In other news, as of yesterday I have three adult children! He was born on Mother’s Day 18 years ago. I still have three being homeschooled, ages 10 – 15.

    Congratulations! Very exciting to see you offer this course. We did coursework like this for our third child this year for his last year home educating. We have one 16, two between 10-15, and two under 6. Keep up the great and hard work loving and living well before our Savior!
