5 Financial Algebra Math course with a Finance setting 3rd or 4th year math creditPrerequisite: Algebra ICollege Prep courseFreshmanSophomoreJuniorSeniorAlgebra 1GeometryAlgebra 2Financial Algebra*FA can be taken concurrently with Alg 2 or GeometryFinancial Algebra is a true Math textbook designed for a math course with a Personal Finance Setting.It is designed to serve as a student’s 3rd or 4th year math credit. For example, students may take Algebra I, then Geometry, then Algebra II, and then Financial Algebra. FA can be taken before or concurrently Algebra 2 and Geometry.This course CANNOT REPLACE Algebra I – Algebra I is a must have pre-requisite for this course.Several teachers I have spoken with would like to use this book for their College Prep Math Course. College Prep math is usually a senior level course that reviews Algebra I, Algebra II, and touches on Precalculus topics.Algebra, Geom, FAAlg, FA, Geom, Alg 2Alg, Geom, FA, Alg 2Alg, Geom, Alg 2, FAThey can concurrently take Alg 2 with FAThey can concurrently take Geom with FAThey must have Alg 1 as a prerequisite.
6 Who will take this course? Juniors and SeniorsSenior who hasn’t taken math since the 10th grade, but needs to fulfill a 3rd Math credit to graduate.Non-College bound students going straight into the workforceCollege bound students who are not going to major in Science or MathematicsThis course will be taken by mostly Juniors and Seniors.This is a perfect solution for a Senior who hasn’t taken math since the 10th grade, but needs to fulfill a 3rd Math credit to graduate.Many schools and even states are beginning to require students to take 4 years of Mathematics. This is the perfect course for students who are not college bound and are going to go directly into the workforce, as well as, for students who ARE college bound, but are not going to major in Mathematics or Science and do not choose to take the traditional Precalculus or Calculus course.Many of the teachers I have spoken with would like this to be a required course for ALL of their students because these are concepts that every single person whether you are college bound or not is going to have to face throughout your life.

If you look at the brief TOC, it appears to be a personal finance book. This is because the math concepts are presented in real-world context, so the book is organized by real world topic.
10 Detailed TOC Math topics covered in the chapter! We decided to create a detailed Table of Contents that highlights the math concepts taught in each chapter to show that this is not a PF text. The blue bullet points describe the Math Concepts taught in that chapter. This is very important to point out to your instructors.
11 In section 5.5 the students will be learning how to write, interpret, and graph a straight line. These concepts will be taught in the context of automobile depreciation.
12 How can you model automobile expense (loan payments) and depreciation over a fixed period of time? What is the value of your car?Read problem…This particular problem is an offshoot of straight line depreciation and expense equations which was covered in previous chapter.
13 Equation of a line y = mx + b Remember this? In this example, the students are learning about linear equations and the slope of a line.
14 EXPENSE and DEPRECIATION FUNCTIONS (35.24, )As you can see from the graph Expenses increase and value depreciates.At this point the class will discuss - What is so important about the intersection point? (35.24, 23,7333)? What happens before and after that point? What decisions can be made? Explaining to the students that you are still paying money, but the value of your car is decreasing. The day you pay off your car and make the 25,000 dollar payment, your car may only be worth 14,000.So, you are going to be putting more money into car than what the car is worth. Students are dumb founded by this. This is a great class discussion. At this point, students can’t believe that they are not “hating” math class – they are supposed to hate math. They are actually getting to talk about things that are important to them.
15 The next example is from section 3. 4 on Compound interest The next example is from section 3.4 on Compound interest. Instead of giving students the compound interest formula and telling them “believe me, it works” and then asking them to plug and chug… Gerver and Sgroi break it down day by day so that students can understand the concept of gaining interest on your interest.
16 How does your money grow? What is compound interest? SAVINGS ACCOUNTS Read problem…Gerver and Sgroi don’t jump into the formula. One of the things that the formula won’t handle is if you make deposits and withdrawals throughout the year. The formula only works if you deposit money and then don’t touch it. So what the book does is show students on a day by day basis how compounding interest works.

That day’s interest is calculated by multiplying by the rate and dividing by There is no formula for that. Then add the 9 cents to the principal.Penny double everyday – in the book somewhere. After 30 days you are making over a million dollars. Let it unfold over 5 minutes rather than a teacher saying take my word for it.
19 Principal Used to Compute Interest $1,068.98 $1,414.84 Date11-Jul12-JulOpening Balance$1,234.98$1,069.07Deposit (+)$34.00$345.77Withdrawal (-)$200.00---Principal Used to Compute Interest$1,068.98$1,414.84Day’s Interest rounded to the nearest cent$0.09$0.12Ending Balance-(this is also tomorrow’s opening balance)$1,414.96The ending balance is the beginning balance for the next day, so they see that they are gaining interest on their interest. Kids don’t get this if you jump right into the formula. You don’t get this kind of aha moment until you look at it day by day. Sometimes you really need to visualize this.Penny double everyday – in the book somewhere. After 30 days you are making over a million dollars. Let it unfold over 5 minutes rather than a teacher saying take my word for it.
20 Here is what these images look like in the book.
21 In the next section the students will make computations using the compound interest formula.
22 In section 7.1 students are going to learn about piecewise functions within the context of tax tables, worksheets, and tax schedules.
23 How can you model and graph the tax schedules? FEDERAL TAXES Here is the tax schedule for taxpayers filing jointly.So, for example if you make over 61,300 but not over 123,700 dollars then you will pay a fixed 8,440 plus 25% of the amount over 61,300 that you make.
24 We can model the schedule using piecewise functions. There are 6 taxable income intervals in the chart. If x represents any taxable income, then those intervals can be expressed in tax schedule notation, interval notation, and compound inequality notation as follows:
25 Tax Liability Equation For each interval in the tax schedule beyond the first, the tax is calculated by adding a fixed tax to a percentage of the difference between the taxable income and some number that is stated in the schedule. Let y represent the tax liability and x represent the taxable income. The tax liabilities can be expressed algebraically as shown here:Tax Schedule NotationTax Liability EquationOver $0 but not over $15100Y = 0.10xOver $15100 but not over $61300Y = (x )Over $61300 but not over $123700Y= (x – 61300)Over $ but not over $188450Y= (x – )Over $ but not over $336550Y= (x – )Over $336550Y = (x – )So now, we are going to take that information and write in tax schedule notation and the tax liability equations.
26 Compound Inequality Notation Over $0 but not over $15100 Tax Schedule NotationInterval NotationCompound Inequality NotationOver $0 but not over $151000 < x £ 15100(x > 0 and x £ 15100)Over $15100 but not over $6130015100 < x £ 61300(x > and x £ 61300)Over $61300 but not over $12370061300 < x £(x > and x £ )Over $ but not over $188450< x £(x > and x £ )Over $ but not over $336550< x £(x > and x £ )Over $336550x >(x > )Now we are going to write the income in three different notations… tax schedule notation, interval notation, and compound inequality notation. All 3 notations mean the same thing… your income is greater than 61,300 and equal to or less than 123,7000.
27 Piecewise FunctionIf f(x) represents the entire tax liability function for married taxpayers filing jointly, then this function can be written in piecewise function notation asNow, we can write the entire schedule as a piecewise function. You might remember seeing something like this in your high school math class. I sure do, but I never really understood what piecewise functions were because I didn’t know what their purpose was? Now, I understand the need and it makes sense why the equations are different for different values of the domain.
28 HOW DOES THE TAX COMPUTATION WORKSHEET RELATE TO THE PIECEWISE FUNCTION? 100,00025,00018,115The IRS includes the tax schedule for information purposes only. Fortaxable incomes over $100,000, taxpayers must use the tax worksheet. In colomn you would enter in your taxable income, then mutliply that by .25 and then subtract 6,885.At this point, you may be asking yourself… where did the 25% and 6,885 come from?
29 For taxable incomes over $61300 but not over $123700, the equation is stated as y = (x – 61300)where y represents the tax liability and x represents the taxable income. Use the distributive property and combine like terms as follows:y = (x – 61300)y = x (61300)y = x – 15325y = 0.25x – 15325y = 0.25x – 6885Well, remember the equation for the income range is… If we simplify this equation we get y = .25 x – 6,885
30 y = 0.25x – 6885100,00025,00018,115Which is exactly what the worksheet guided us to do.
