Ideal for 3rd or 4th year math students, FINANCIAL ALGEBRA: ADVANCED ALGEBRA WITH FINANCIAL APPLICATIONS applies mathematical concepts in practical business and personal finance contexts. Aligned to the Common Core State Standards, FINANCIAL ALGEBRA helps students achieve success by incorporating Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry topics.
Authors Robert Gerver and Richard Sgroi have spent their 25+ year-careers teaching students of all ability levels and they have found the most success when math is connected to the real world. FINANCIAL ALGEBRA encourages students to be actively involved in applying mathematical ideas to their everyday lives – credit, banking insurance, the stock market, independent living and more!
The 2014 edition aligns and applies the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Each lesson clearly identifies domains and standards that are covered in addition to CCSS Warm-up activities to kick off the instruction.

The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all students who want to play sports at an NCAA Division I or II institution as freshmen. NCAA requires that students complete a minimum of 16 core courses (14 core courses for 2011 and 2012 graduates attending a Div II institution) to be able to practice, play, and receive a scholarship at an NCAA Division I or II college or university. Core Courses must be approved by NCAA and added to your school’s approved course list.
Keep in mind that NCAA gives accreditation to courses rather than textbooks. Several schools using Financial Algebra have received NCAA approval and we can assist you with that application process. NCAA's guidelines must be adhered to in order for the course to be accepted. You will notice that the course proposed (see course proposal resources below) is well aligned with the textbook and maintains the mathematical rigor of an upper level math course. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the NCAA website and their criteria for course approval.
What is a core course?
A course must be:
