Personal Finance Packet

The purpose of this course is to introduce principles of financial literacy to students at the high school level. The study guides for the two required readings direct students to ponder the main ideas of each book rather than simply recite back facts. The projects required for completion of the course provide a "hands on" dimension.

This packet, when completed will fulfill either a full or 1/2 unit course requirement for Personal Finance.
