By combining algebraic and graphical approaches with practical business and personal finance applications, South-Western's FINANCIAL ALGEBRA, motivates high school students to explore algebraic thinking patterns and functions in a financial context. FINANCIAL ALGEBRA will help your students achieve success by offering an applications based learning approach 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 live – credit, banking insurance, the stock market, independent living and more!
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. 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 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?
