ISBN: 978-1-56183-602-4

In today's era of interdisciplinary studies, this new title created specifically for math teachers shows how mathematics concepts and knowledge can be used to develop economic and personal financial understandings. Mathematics teachers need not have a background in economics in order to implement the curriculum. Our nationwide network can be called upon to provide support with any questions that may arise. The 15 featured lessons are useful across a variety of mathematics courses, including:

  • Pre-Algebra
  • Algebra I and II
  • Pre-Calculus
  • Calculus
  • Data/Analysis Probability
  • Geometry

Each of the 15 lessons is correlated to the National Standards for Mathematics and includes:

  • Numbers and Operations
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Measurement
  • Data Analysis and Probability
  • Problem Solving
  • Reasoning and Proof
  • Communications
  • Connections
  • Representations

Each lesson includes student activities, overhead transparencies, and background information on the economic content and how it relates to mathematics. Extension activities where students can apply their mathematics and economics knowledge to real world situations are provided.
