Product Description:

Leasing a car, buying on credit, planning a budget - these are just a few examples of "survival math skills." This book contains 46 reproducible activities, each of which is categorized by math content and computational skill for easy integration into your math curriculum. Activities are organized into eight main topics: food costs & nutrition, transportation & vacation costs, saving & checking accounts, household budgeting, buying on credit, job benefits & income, taxes, and miscellaneous. Teacher pages and solutions are included. Although no grade level is recommended, I would recommend these activities for middle school to high school students because activities require students to work proficiently with monetary computations, percents, proportions, and decimals. ~ Anh

A good option for my pracitcal student that doesn't see why she needs to know math that her teacher(me, a competent adult) doesn't use or understand... :)

Every single day my 9th grader asks me why she has to know math and how will she ever use it in real life. Ithought this book would be a great resource to show her how.

Helpful for young people to learn about budgets and to see the big picture in regard to cost of living and the choices that need to be made. My third time ordering it.

Is this text book out of date?
User on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This book does have an older copyright (1998) and therefore some of the amounts used in examples may seem out of date but the general premise and coverage of the book is still relevant.

Preparing for adult responsibilities
It is helpful to bring out the "hidden/quiet" but real costs of life. Makes kids realize there is so much more than rent, food and cars to prepare for. I add this along with to other resources for my high school agenda.
