    Mr. Turnipseed

     

    Welcome to Money Matters.  Students will investigate global economics with emphasis on the free enterprise system and its impact on consumers and businesses.  Students apply critical-thinking skills to analyze financial options based on current and projected economic factors.  Students will gain knowledge and skills necessary to set long-term financial goals based on those options.  Students will determine methods of achieving long-term financial goals through investment; tax planning, asset allocation, credit and risk management, retirement planning, and estate planning.

     

    Since this is a business class, you will be expected to behave in a business like manner.  That means you will treat others with respect, work when we are in the classroom, be penalized for coming to class late, and being expected to bring your work materials to class as well as other general employee aspects.  In the same way, you will be rewarded as employees are, with success in the class that includes good grades while learning valuable tools that will help with future jobs as well as life.  This course will focus on introducing students to the world of business and helping prepare them for a more meaningful and beneficial interaction with business and our economy.
