Option D (3 Hour Class) Evening Course Requirements

Welcome to The Laws of Money Summer Course! You will often hear Mr. LaSalle and Mr. Bishop say, “The laws of the universe are so similar to the laws of nature and the laws of money that you cannot really learn about one without learning about the other two.” No matter what class you are recovering credits for, there is a connection to money. During this 5-day online and 3-day in-person course, you will learn the key elements of personal finance that are necessary for finding your niche in life and becoming wealthy. You will also complete assignments aligned to the content and standards of your failed class. 

Course Requirements:

  • Meet for five 3-hour Zoom sessions where we will go over some of the most important topics in personal finance. At the end of each session, you will take a short Google Form exit ticket that will confirm your attendance for that session (exit ticket links will be found in the chat at the end of each Zoom meeting). Each Zoom session is worth 30 points – you earn 9 points for being on time and participating (if you are more than 10 minutes late, you lose 9 points points), you earn 6 points for leaving your camera on the entire session, and you earn 15 points for completing the exit ticket. 
  • After each session you will be required to watch up to three YouTube videos and take a 10 multiple-choice question quiz that goes along with each video. All quizzes assigned each week are due by 11:59PM the Saturday of that week. Quizzes submitted after 11:59PM on Saturday will not count towards your grade. You may take each quiz multiple times to get a score you are happy with, but any evidence of cheating/randomly guessing will result in a zero for that quiz score. 
  • After the five 3-hour Zoom sessions are complete, you must come in person to 6301 N 2nd Street for 3 days from Monday, July 25 to Wednesday, July 27 from 1:30PM to 5:00PM. During this time, you will complete some additional projects aligned to the class you failed. Finally, on either Thursday, July 28 OR Friday, July 29, you will take an in-person 70 question multiple-choice final exam (also at 6301 N 2nd Street from 1:30PM to 5:00PM) to assess your understanding of the material. For the final exam, you may use ONE page of handwritten notes (normal sheet of printer paper/front and back). If you earn a 65% or higher for your final course grade (which includes attendance, quizzes, and the final exam), you will receive one math credit towards your high school degree.
  • *Note: There is no makeup work for this course, so be sure to attend all Zoom sessions, complete all weekly quizzes, and take the in-person final exam.
