1 Title: How Will I Survive? Brief Overview: Middle school students need practical application to experience the ups and downs of finance that plays an integral part of our adult lives. Students will use a career connection project to research how much it costs to survive on their own. Students will choose a career, family situation, housing, transportation, and manage finances. The culminating activity involves an oral, visual, and written representation of their life scenario. Links to NCTM 2000 Standards: Mathematics as Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Communication, Connections, and Representation These five process standards are threads that integrate through the unit, although they may not be specifically addressed in the unit. They emphasize the need to help students develop the processes that are the major means for doing mathematics, thinking about mathematics, understanding mathematics, and communicating mathematics. Number and Operation Students will demonstrate their ability to solve problems using arithmetic operations with technology to calculate a weekly/monthly budget. They will choose appropriate operations as in finding the percent of a number and provide written explanations of their results. Data Analysis and Statistics Students will demonstrate their ability to organize and display data. They will analyze and interpret the circle graph. Measurement Students will demonstrate their ability to adequately prepare a circle graph of their weekly/monthly budget using a circular protractor.
