Hi Guys! So I have the wonderful job of creating my own classes at the school I teach at. I get to create my own calendar for the classes, syllabus, ect. While this may sound fun, doing it for 6 classes every 12 weeks is very tedious, and I am running out of ideas for the classes... The first trimester, I am teaching a geometry and consumer math class. The geometry class I can extend, so that's not a problem, but I need an idea for what to replace the consumer math class with? It can basically be ANYTHING I want. I teach at an alternative high school, so the kids range in abilities, so it can't be like a calculus class. Anyone have any ideas on a fun topic to teach for 12 weeks? Thanks!

What have you covered this far in the consumer math course? Can't you add in there? How about a course on investments? or on banking? An algebra class focused soley on verbal problems, to help them tackle practical algebra?
