2 Teens and Budgeting Unit Concept: Students will understand that having a written financial plan (a budget) is a necessary part of responsible money management. The lessons included will give teenage learners a way to connect budgeting to their personal wants and needs. Students will practice both planning a budget and making trade-offs based on wants and needs. These lessons are designed to compliment your state standards and are based on recommended Standards from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Content Standards: Numbers and Operations: Students will be able to perform computations in different ways. Students should be able to explain their method, understand that many methods exist and see the usefulness of methods that are efficient, accurate and general. Data Analysis and Probability: Students will learn to formulate questions and collect, organize and display relevant data. Process Standards: Students will see mathematical connections in the rich interplay among mathematical topics, in contexts that relate mathematics to other subjects and in their own interests and experience. And from the National Council on Economic Education s National Standards: Standard 1: Scarcity: Students will learn that productive resources are limited. Therefore, people can t have all the goods and services they want; as a result, they must choose some things and give up others.
