Content Area:
Quantitative Modeiling is a mathematical modeling course that is algebra-based, applications-oriented,and technology-dependent. The course addresses college preparatory mathematics topics from Advanced Algebra, Statistics, Probability, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus under seven financial umbrellas: Banking, Investing, Credit, Employment and Income Taxes, Automobile Ownership, Independent Living, and Retirement Planning and Household Budgeting. The course allows students to experience the interrelatedness of mathematical topics, find patterns, make conjectures, and extrapolate from known situations to unknown situations. The mathematics topics contained in this course are introduced, developed, and applied in an as-needed format in the financial settings covered. Students are encouraged to use a variety of problem-solving skills and strategies in real-world contexts, and to question outcomes using mathematical analysis and data to support their findings. The course offers students multiple opportunities to use, construct, question, model, and interpret financial situations through symbolic algebraic representations, graphical representations, geometric representations, and verbal representations. The purpose of Quantitative Modleing is to apply and extend the mathematics from Algebra 1 and Geometry to concepts relating to finance. The course employs concepts from algebra, probability and statistics, and geometry to solve financial problems that occur in everyday life. Real-world problems in investing, credit, banking, auto insurance, mortgages, employment, income taxes, budgeting and planning for retirement are solved by applying the relevant mathematics. The critical areas for Financial Algebra include investing, banking and consumer credit, employment and income tax, automobile ownership, and independent living.
