Introduction to Financial Math
1. Develop fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of basic operations with and without calculators.
2. Solve one- and two-step problems involving whole numbers, fractions, and decimals using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
3. Solve practical computation problems for business such as calculating wages after taxes, developing a budget, and balancing a checkbook.
4. Analyze problem statements for missing/irrelevant data; estimate/exact values, and inconsistent parameters.
5. Identify business math terms.
6. Prove that results of computations using whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, and proportions are correct.
7. Recognize patterns and relationships among numbers.
8. Estimate the results of rational number computations and judge the reasonableness of the results.
9. Identify and use relationships between operations, such as division as the inverse of multiplication to solve problems.
10. Apply relational (equal, greater than, less than, etc.) and logical operations in a logical expression.
11. Select appropriate methods and tools for computing with whole numbers from mental computation, estimation, calculators, and paper and pencil.
12. Convert within and between measurement systems (metric and customary) and monetary systems using technology where appropriate.
13. Estimate conversions between the customary and metric systems.
14. Use the appropriate type of unit to calculate measurement of length, area, weight, volume, angles, and perimeter.
