Learning Domain: Spending and Saving

Standard: Identify the costs of cashing a check with various third parties, such as banks and credit unions, check-cashing services, and retail outlets

Learning Domain: Credit and Debt

Standard: Identify how credit card grace periods, methods of interest calculation (eg, annual percentage rate), and fees affect borrowing costs

Learning Domain: Credit and Debt

Standard: Compare the total cost of reducing a credit card balance to zero with minimum payments versus above-minimum payments, all other terms being equal and no further purchases being made

Cluster: Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems

Standard: Use units as a way to understand problems and to guide the solution of multi-step problems; choose and interpret units consistently in formulas; choose and interpret the scale and the origin in graphs and data displays.*

Cluster: Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems

Standard: Define appropriate quantities for the purpose of descriptive modeling.*

Cluster: Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems

Standard: Choose a level of accuracy appropriate to limitations on measurement when reporting quantities.*

Cluster: Interpret the structure of expressions.

Standard: Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)^n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P.*

Cluster: Create equations that describe numbers or relationship

Standard: Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.*

Cluster: Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context

Standard: For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.*

Cluster: Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context

Standard: Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes. For example, if the function h(n) gives the number of person-hours it takes to assemble n engines in a factory, then the positive integers would be an appropriate domain for the function.*

Cluster: Analyze functions using different representations

Standard: Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.*

Cluster: Analyze functions using different representations

Standard: Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02)^t, y = (0.97)^t, y = (1.01)^(12t), y = (1.2)^(t/10), and classify them as representing exponential growth and decay.

Cluster: Interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation they model

Standard: Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.*
