The New York TimesApril 9, 2010Most Americans arenʼt fluent in the language of money. Yetweʼre expected to make big financial decisions as early as ourteens even though most of us received no formal instructionon financial matters until it is too late. All of this raises thequestion: Whatʼs happening inside our classrooms? And howmany schools even broach the topic? As it turns out, for acountry that prizes personal responsibility, weʼre doing verylittle.Course Technology Delmar South-Western

What is Financial Algebra? A mathematically rigorous, algebra-based course. (Not anarithmetic-based personal finance course). Algebra 1 is the prerequisite, and Algebra 1 skills are reinforcedthroughout. Includes selected topics from Algebra 2, Precalculus, Statistics,Probability and Geometry that are taught at an ability-appropriatelevel for the Algebra 1-prerequisite audience. It is technology-dependent and applications-oriented.Course Technology Delmar South-Western

Why should students take Financial Algebra It is a chance for students who struggled in algebra and/or geometry to gainconfidence in, and an appreciation for, mathematics. It allows solid mathematics students to use their mathematics savvy on adaily basis. All students need this material. It offers a mathematics course that addresses a current “hot topic” ineducation. It allows departments to graduate all students with 3 and 4 years ofmathematics, and as a result could increase math enrollment.Course Technology Delmar South-Western

There is an abundance of rich mathematicscontent in Financial Algebra. We are going tolook at a sampling of some of the advancedalgebra, precalculus and statistics that it covers,all with an Algebra 1 prerequisite.Course Technology Delmar South-Western

Scatterplots, linear regression, modified boxplots,outliers, mean, median, range, interquartile range:What role can statistics play in negotiating anautomobile purchase or sale?Megan is selling a used Honda.

Itʼs of immediate interest to mosthigh school students AUTOMOBILE INSURANCEMollie has 100/300/50 liability insurance, and 50,000 PIP insurance. She runs a stopsign and hits a telephone pole and bounces into a minivan with 8 people inside.Some are seriously hurt and sue her. Others have minor injuries. Three passengersin Mollieʼs car are also hurt.a. The pole will cost 7,000 to replace. Mollie also did 6,700 worth of damage to theminivan. What insurance will cover this, and how much will the company pay?b. The minivanʼs driver was a concert violinist. The injury to his hand means he cannever work again. He sues for 4,000,000 and is awarded that money in court. Whattype of insurance covers this, and how much will the insurance company pay?c. The minivanʼs driver (from part b) had medical bills totaling 60,000 from his hospitaltrip and physical therapy after the accident. What type of insurance covers this, andhow much will the insurance company pay?d. The three passengers in Mollieʼs car are hurt and each requires 12,000 worth ofmedical attention. What insurance covers this, and how much will the company pay?

AUTOMOBILE DEPRECIATION:How does your car appreciate ordepreciate; linearly, exponentially, or likea historical “bath tub”?STRAIGHT LINE DEPRECIATION-linear, with a negative slope.The x and y intercepts have specific interpretations.Celine bought a new car for 33,600. She made a 4000 down paymentand pays 560 each month for 5 years to pay off her loan. She knows fromher research that the make and model of the car she purchased is straightline depreciated over 10 years.

Your speed can determine your financialliability in an auto accident. Simple arithmetic:A car traveling 55 miles per hour covers 4840 feet per minute, orabout 80 feet in one second. It covers 60 feet in the reaction timeof ¾ second!

What is compound interest?SAVINGS ACCOUNTSJennifer has a bank account that compounds interest daily at a rate of3.2%. On the morning of Feb 10 the principal is 1,234.98. That day shewithdraws 200 to pay for a car repair. Later that day she is mailed a 34 check from her health insurance company, and she deposits that inthe bank. On Feb 11, she deposits her 345.77 paycheck. What is herbalance at the end of the day on Feb 11?

Students should get a feel for “getting intereston your interest” before deriving the compoundinterest formula.Dateà Opening BalanceDeposit ( )Withdrawal (-)Principal Used toCompute InterestDayʼs Interestrounded to thenearest centEnding Balance(also tomorrowʼsopening balance)Feb 10Feb 11 1,234.98 1,069.07 34.00 345.77 200.00--- 1,068.98 1,414.84 0.09 0.12After thisintroduction,students derive thecompound interestformula r B P 1 n ntThey use a calculatorto evaluatex 1,069.07 1,414.96 1 e lim 1 x x and use B Pert forcontinuouscompounding.

How can you model andgraph the tax schedules?FEDERAL TAXES

If f(x) represents the entire tax liability functionfor married taxpayers filing jointly, then thistax schedule can be written in piecewisefunction notation as 0.10 x 1510 0.15( x 15100) 8440 0.25( x 61300)f ( x) 24040 0.28( x 123700) 42170 0.33( x 188450) 91043 0.35( x 336550)0 x 1510015100 x 6130061300 x 123700123700 x 188450188450 x 336550x 336550

How can you set up anexpense and a demandfunction?The accounting department has calculated that this new widget couldbe the biggest product to hit the market in years! They anticipate that the fixed costs to make the product will be 160,000 and the variablecost will be 150 per widget. The market research department conducted surveys from retail outlets that wouldpotentially buy the widgets. In these ordered pairs, the first number represents thepossible price and the second number represents the quantity demanded. The points arelisted as (p, q).(300, 10000), (325,8900), (350, 8800), (375, 8650), (400, 6700),(425, 6500), (450, 5000), (475, 4500), (500, 4450), (525, 3000)

Using Linear Regression, the demand equation isq -30.74p 19330Using the concept of fixed and variable costs, theexpense equation isE 150q 160000

How can Revenue be expressedin terms of price?The amount of revenue generated by the sale of q widgetsat a price of p dollars per widget is the product of p and q.R pqRecall that q is a function of p, so the revenue functionʼsgraph is a concave down parabola.
