NGPF’s Financial Algebra materials combine Algebra concepts with personal finance concepts to provide your student with a solid understanding of Algebra that is relevant to them. NGPF’s new Application Problems always have 3 levels and are paired with each of the math lessons in our Financial Algebra course. They bridge high-school level math with real-world contexts related to personal finance.
- Level 1 -- Write and graph linear equations based on 3 fictional compensation packages
- Level 2 -- Look up minimium wage for your state and use a Desmos Classroom activity to explore deeper
- Level 3 -- Check out the Living Wage calculator from MIT to write and graph equations but also reflect on how families cover expenses on a low income
