    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this class has really taught me a lot about life in general. There’s classes for history and math but Econ. is where you really learn how to "adult". It also helps when you have an amazing teacher like Mrs. Peterson. She explains everything very clearly and always asked if we had questions about anything. It always amazed me how many types of bank accounts and insurance policies there are. This class was a great general over view on basic things we need to know about living on our own.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the highlights on this course were all the fun activities we did to better understand the information given. We even did a mock- stock market. We were all given a certain amount of "money" to invest and we checked the website everyday to buy and trade stocks. At the end, whoever had earned the most money, won. As a class, we went over how to file taxes and learned the differences between bank accounts. My teacher even told us some very important advice for college students: don't get a credit card. She says it makes you not aware of your spending until you get a huge bill in the mail, you can't pay. We learned about different insurance policies and related them to real-life situations. Overall, the entire class, teacher and all, was a great experience and I will use the information I learned for years to come.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just don't think of the class as something you don't need now, think of how much you will need it in the future. Thinking like this will get you interested in the course and help you along. A lot of the kids in my class were just uninterested and they suffered for it. It really is useful information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was lucky enough to get a more depth learning on some of the things it takes to buy a house, or file taxes ect. It helped me understand that life can be a little simpler just by paying bills on time, keeping my credit score up, and having insurance. Entering this class; I wished I would've learned this stuff before starting my job and buying my first car !

    Course highlights:

    I understand now the importance of making sure that I am financially stable to care for myself or those around me. That sometimes eating out cost tons more money a month than, cooking meals at home. Resulting in more money that can go into my savings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to others would be to pay close attention . This class could help you make very important decisions in your life. And it can ensure you from making a good decision financially from a bad one
