Exceeding Common Core Standards through Financial Education

As a young kid in class, did you learn something and think to yourself

When am I ever going to use this?

If so, don’t worry you’re not the only one. Many students question the importance of the education they receive and to be honest sometimes they’re justified (till this day I don’t understand the why schools teach imaginary numbers).

Luckily, algebra is a useful mathematical concept as you practically use it everytime you handle your money. So to insure your child has the best mathematical knowledge each of our courses were designed to either meet or exceed common core standards.

What are Common Core Standards

In 2009 Common Core Standards were introduced as a way to set high academic standards in both mathematics and English language arts.

These standards were created to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live.

Forty-one states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) have voluntarily adopted and are moving forward with the Common Core.

How DCU Uses Common Core

We believe that you’re never too young to learn about money therefore each of our lessons caters to your child’s development. For a Kindergarten class may emphasize learn about value, basic addition and subtracting while a higher grade would tackle concepts like interest and division.

By doing this you can feel confident that not only will you child learn about finances but they will also develop their mathematical comprehension skills as well.
