My classes are normally six units long. They cover the following:

1) Budgeting & Goals
2) Taxes and the Economy
3) Credit
4) Insurance
5) Investing (stocks & bonds)
6) Investing (mutual funds) along with the time value of money

The most important thing in the class is that assignments are geared around students doing their own budgets and thinking in terms of what they need now and how that can change as they move forward personally and professionally.
