Financial Algebra is designed to instruct students in algebraic thinking while also preparing them to navigate a number of financial applications. Students will explore how algebraic knowledge is connected to many financial situations, including investing, using credit, paying taxes, and shopping for insurance. In studying these topics, students will learn about the linear, exponential, and quadratic relationships that apply to financial applications. In addition, the course will help prepare students to tackle the wide variety of financial decisions they will face in life, from setting up their first budget to planning for retirement.

Student participation in this course is documented by the following:
- Student active time in course logged by the learning management system.
- Course Progress monitored using Course Progress Report. If student is Off Pace, logged time is examined using Learner Daily Usage Report.
- If a student has not met participation thresholds for being considered present as tracked in LMS for the week, but virtual education teacher can confirm that the student has an IEP, and the student has satisfied what was required according to the IEP, the student will be counted present.
- When this course is taken by a student in a school with a district-assigned learning coach, seat time attendance may be used to document participation.
- The virtual education teacher verifies participation in the course 1-3 times a week.
- Once a week, Course Progress checked. If student is Off Pace, logged time is checked. If less than 150 minutes (for a typical 5 in-session days week), for a single course enrollment, logged time on all virtual courses is considered. If student combined logged time for all virtual courses is less than number of virtual courses enrolled in for the week multiplied by 150 (for example, for a student enrolled in 4 virtual courses, the threshold would be 4x150=600 minutes), student is considered absent for the week for the course. Consideration of total time logged for all virtual courses is to allow for students to concentrate on a subset of virtual courses.
