Practical Accounting is a third year math class, for Juniors and Seniors. There is a local examination given at the end of this course.
In all areas of life, it’s not what you know that counts – it’s what you can do with what you know. Think about it. You probably already know how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. But how well can you apply what you know to real life problems and challenges?
That’s what this course is all about. You will learn important information about buying, saving, and spending. You will learn how to read a paycheck stub and a checking account statement. You will learn how to make wise purchases when you shop for groceries, clothes, or furniture. You will know about loans and interest, credit cards, and insurance. You will be able to make a budget, compare car prices, and plan a vacation you can afford. In fact, you will be able to think “mathematically” when you need to make a plan or get a job done. This ability will help you avoid many mistakes and problems. It will also help you make good decisions in all parts of your life – at school, home, or on the job.
