It also aims to aid in building enough familiarity with spreadsheets to be able to build a spreadsheet that will track income and expenditures, produce invoices and purchase orders, and allow tracking of expenses by categories. This will all be done with an emphasis on what the Bible has to say about the issues involved, as well as some basic teaching in the area of economics. The material is intended to be basic, and more a platform on which to build as needed.Outcomes:
- Understand basic mathematical principles and how to apply them to financial, ministry and business situations
- Understand basic principles of using spreadsheets, as exemplified by EXCEL, for simple financial, ministry and business activities
- Understand basic concepts of money and economics and be able to use that understanding in ministry and business activity
- Understand the Scriptural teachings about a Christian's attitude toward and use of money and material goods
- Understand what the Scriptures say about ethical principles in business

Assignments: Each unit in this course has different homework requirements. Some require a file upload that will be graded for completion. Others will consist of practice questions. Homework grades will not affect your final grade since these homework assignments are meant as practice and for gaining greater understanding. Either way, the homework prepares students for the quizzes. Students will not be required to submit homework to be graded; however, completing the homework and taking it seriously will likely result in better quiz grades.
