Money Matters is a CTE course introducing students to basic financial concepts, institutions, and careers. Students will explore professional business practices before surveying financial industry careers. They will then investigate business types and the rights of consumers. A survey of banking is followed by an investigation of credit, loans, and identity theft. Students will examine economic concepts including unemployment, inflation, international business, and the role of the Federal Reserve System. Before exploring taxes and financial records, students will learn the importance of investing and analyze how different types of investments can contribute to a sound portfolio. The course concludes with a look at managing risk through the use of insurance products. Practical projects include reconciling a bank account, preparing a federal income tax Form 1040, and creating a budget.
