Applying Financial Literacy in Math Instruction

1. Applying Financial Literacy in Math Instruction

In this lesson, we will define financial literacy and show you how we incorporate math in our instruction. You'll also learn how to calculate sales tax, interest on savings and interest on debt.

Math for Long-Term Financial Management

2. Math for Long-Term Financial Management

Math is integral in predicting financial outcomes and avoiding financial risk. While math-based finance can be a complex study involving statistics and calculus, there are some math concepts (implementing algebra), which serve a valuable purpose in this capacity. One such focus is on compounding interest.

What is an Algorithm? - Definition & Examples

3. What is an Algorithm? - Definition & Examples

Algorithms are everywhere. Computers use them, your friends use them, even you use them. Learn more about what algorithms are, as well as create some algorithms of your own.

How to Compare & Evaluate Rankings

4. How to Compare & Evaluate Rankings

Rankings are everywhere and it's important to learn how to read a ranking when you see one. In this lesson, you'll learn how you can compare rankings so you know which one is the better choice.

Euler Paths and Euler's Circuits

5. Euler Paths and Euler's Circuits

Watch this video lesson, and you will see how you can turn a math problem into a challenging brain game. Learn what it means for a graph to be Eulerian or semi-Eulerian.

Calculating Financial Problems with Mathematical Models

6. Calculating Financial Problems with Mathematical Models

In this lesson, we will look at some different investment options offering simple interest, compound interest, and interest compounded continuously. We will examine the mathematical models used to calculate each of these types of interest.
