We use Practical Math for Consumers by Globe Fearon (Pearson) which is a little old (2004) so some of the figures are outdated, but it covers over half of our course. Units are: budgeting, paychecks, banking and saving, cash or credit, housing, buying and preparing food, buying personal items, owning a vehicle, and recreation, travel, and entertainment. We also ordered a class set which comes with supplementary materials.

We are offering a Consumer Math course next year for the first time in years. We need to choose a textbook very quickly. Does anyone have a text they could recommend?

thank you,
