Personal Finance Class Syllabus

By LaQuita Haywood

Personal Finance is designed as the management of money and financial decisions for a person or family including budgeting, credit worthiness, payroll calculations, retirement planning and investments.


This course is designed to be a 9 weeks course (1/2 credit).


Expectations: You are expected and required to come to class prepared everyday. Being prepared for class includes, but is not limited to bringing appropriate writing tools (pencil or pen), notebook, positive attitude, and an open mind and willingness to work with others!!!!! Since this is a computer class no homework will be given, therefore attendance is very important. If you miss class it’s your responsibility to get with me to see if you missed anything.
