Description

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in today’s world, including our complex financial environment. Using practical business problems and real-world personal financial issues, this course will explore areas of mathematics that help us understand, predict, and control our financial world.  Topics such as investments, the stock market, business start-ups, banking, credit cards, insurance, income taxes, business planning, home buying, and budgeting are the framework in which students will explore and master mathematical concepts and skills such as data analysis (scatter plots, averages, frequency distributions); fitting data to equations; linear, quadratic, exponential, and piecewise models; interest formulas (simple, compound, and continuous); and present and future value.

 This course is designed for the college-bound student and will therefore cover the above topics in depth and at a challenging pace.  Students will model problems using a variety of functions and must justify process and results.  Problem solving and communicating mathematically will be emphasized. Graphing calculators and/or computers will be used throughout the year.

 COURSE GOALS:

  •  To provide students with the basic analytic tools they need to understand financial issues and develop sound financial strategies, which can help them to reach their financial goals, both personally and in the business world.
 
  • To strengthen and extend students’ mathematics skills, particularly their algebra foundations
