BJU Consumer Math 2nd Ed.
This edition of BJU Consumer Math is as practical as ever, covering essential topics for high school students. Basic math skills such as rates, ratios, proportions, percents, operations with integers, algebra, and integer exponents are introduced. Customary and international measurement systems, conversions between the two, linear measure, area, and volume are also covered prior to continuing on with the study of math in specific consumer areas. These include: figuring and calculating income; short and long-term budgets; personal banking - different accounts and interest rates; borrowing money; transportation (the world of new cars, used cars, insurance, gas, oil, tires, and such); food; clothing; housing - including mortgages, renting, owning, and home maintenance/improvements; life and health insurance policies; income taxes - becoming familiar with the tax forms; and the financial aspects of taking vacations. With a very clear and easy-to-follow layout, and an emphasis on wise stewardship based upon biblical principles, this is a thorough presentation of practical, daily-life consumer math.
