Modern Business Math, First Edition

Modern Business Math ©2024

Grades 9–12

Modern Business Math breaks down fundamental math concepts and applies them to real-life personal and business decisions that students can apply immediately in their personal or entrepreneurial pursuits. Chapters feature current events from the Wall Street Journal and Kiplinger, and real-world practice problems. “My Money” exercises allow students to apply the concept they have just learned to a personal situation, such as calculating the monthly payment for a new car loan. Modern Business Math is a great alternative for students not pursuing a major or career requiring calculus.

  • “My Money” segment brings mathematical concepts to life by showing students how to use what they have learned to understand complicated topics, like payroll deductions. 

  • Critical thinking discussion questions help students think about the bigger picture and apply math concepts learned in the chapter in a creative, thought-provoking, and realistic setting.

  • Money Tips provide tips students can use in their everyday personal decisions to improve their financial position.

  • Builds student knowledge and confidence with relevant, real-world problems and blueprints that simplify complex calculations into step-by-step instructions.

  • Excel templates help students understand how managers use Excel to solve problems and inform business decisions.

  • Comprehensive Chapter Review summarizes key concepts and calculation steps together for quick reference and recall.

  • Hundreds of soft skills practice questions.

  • Digital teaching guide features presentation materials, discussion prompts, pre-made assessments, question banks, and project-based learning resources.
