Unit 1: Establishing a problem-solving process

Summary:

In this unit, students will develop a problem-solving process and use previous understandings of operations to solve real-life problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers. They will also solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals. Students will also build an understanding of rational numbers and model situations involving rational numbers with concrete and pictorial models. The students will also compare and order rational numbers.

**Essential Questions:**

1)Why is it important to have a problem solving strategy?

2) Why is it important to use tools to solve problems?

3) How can you use a visual to classify whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers correctly?

**Objective:**

Unit 2: Financial Literacy

Unit 2: Financial Literacy

**Summary:**

In this unit, students will be able to understand features of Checking Accounts. Students will develop an understanding of financial literacy as they compare features of different financial institutions’ checking and saving accounts. They will also balance a check register. Students will also understand the differences betweendebit and credit cards. Students will enhance their understanding of financial literacy as they describe the information in a credit report and distinguish between credit and debit cards. They will also use a family budget estimator to determine a minimum household budget.

**Essential Questions:**

1) Why should you compare the features of different banks' checking accounts?

2) Why is it important to always balance your account?

3) What are the major benefits and drawbacks of using either credit cards or debit cards?

4) Why is it important to establish good credit history?

5) Why should you always get in a habit of creating a budget?
