Learning flourishes where we are given enough space and freedom to risk, to make mistakes, to fail without fear of serious consequence” (Saltrick, 1977). This class is about creating a community of learners. Failure occurs only when the student chooses not to learn, or not to be responsible for his or her own education. “We do not learn best by memorizing facts about the subject. Because reality is communal—we learn best by interacting with it” (Palmer, 1993). This course is a personal finance course; as such, we interact with the subject matter in our real lives on a daily basis. We purchase goods, we pay our bills, we plan for our financial futures; therefore, we are learning because we apply our knowledge every day. The basic ground rule for this course is RESPECT. As university students we should expect diversity in backgrounds, beliefs, and values related to course topics. It is asked that you always maintain respect for your instructor, your fellow students, guest lecturers, and opinions different from your own. COURSE CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Basic principles of money management. Budgeting, record keeping, checking, savings accounts, consumer credit, insurance, investment and taxes. 1
