Rated 1 out of 5Â by upsethomeschoolmom Great topics but explained poorly
I bought the Consumer Math book along with the tests and answer key. The answer key is not very useful because it doesn't contain solutions to the problems, only answers. Some of the problems have 5 to 10 steps in them, so it is very difficult without the solutions to know where you and your student have gone wrong. My husband is a CPA and he finally concluded one of the answers must be wrong because with the information given he was not able to arrive at the same solution as the answer key. If this had only happened once, I wouldn't be so upset; but it has happened on almost every quiz/test our daughter has taken.

It is a good course, but some of the answers are not correct. They are "close enough" but never the less, wrong. page 70 question 24 finding the volume of figure 24 where height is 10cm and radius is 8 cm. V=pir2(h) = pi(8)square times ten. equals 2009.6 but the book says 2010.6. this is one example.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by timmel harder than expected
Everyone told me this would be an easy class, but we have only finished chapters1 & 2 and have found it to be very difficult.

The Consumer Math curriculum is an excellent choice. It is loaded with practical information and should be required for all students before graduation. Everything from store discounts to filing taxes to making large purchases is covered. Students who complete this course will be prepared for the reality of life.

The biggest problem is that there are no solutions which would be helpful for home school parents.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sallie Most practical math offered!
This course covers all aspects of math/finance that adults use on a regular basis. It gives high schoolers a great understanding of "real life" applications. We have had a few problems with a lack of explanation in some sections and have had to skip problems that we as teachers could not explain. Otherwise, a well laid our book!

I have been homeschooling for over 25 years and I think this is the most valuable course that I have taught to my 11 children. My son that I am teaching now is soon to be 16 and this course is probably the most useful thing he has learned. I love the Biblical applications and the practical life lessons that are taught. I can't say enough good about it. You won't be sorry if you use this course.

Having the tests and quizzes already done is so helpful!
