CoreMathematics of Personal FinanceMathematics of Personal Finance focuses on real-world financial literacy, personal finance, and business subjects. Studentsapply what they learned in Algebra I and Geometry to topics including personal income, taxes, checking and savingsaccounts, credit, loans and payments, car leasing and purchasing, home mortgages, stocks, insurance, and retirementplanning.Students then extend their investigations using more advanced mathematics, such as systems of equations (whenstudying cost and profit issues) and exponential functions (when calculating interest problems). To assist students for whomlanguage presents a barrier to learning or who are not reading at grade level, Mathematics of Personal Finance includesaudio resources in both Spanish and English.This course is built to state standards as they apply to Mathematics of Personal Finance and adheres to the National Councilof Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) Problem Solving, Communication, Reasoning, and Mathematical Connections Processstandards.Length: Two semestersUNIT 1: WHAT IS MONEY?LESSON 1: MONEY DEFINEDStudy: Money Def inedDefine money and understand how it is created.
