This curriculum bulletin in Business Mathematics is intended primarily for teachers of tenth grade pupils who are being trained for specific office and sales positions. The format of this syllabus has been organized to provide representative sample problems for each of three categories of pupils who (1) are currently functioning at an average level or pace in mathematics, (2) manifest difficulty with mathematical concepts and/or skills and are currently functioning below the average level or pace, and (3) demonstrate a keener grasp of number relationships, and currently are functioning at an above-average level or pace. The objectives of the bulletin are (1) to develop accuracy in the application of fundamental processes to the solution of arithmetic problems that the pupil will face as a businessman, an employee, or a customer, (2) to develop the pupils' understanding of the business background and of the social and economic forces implicit in the problems of this syllabus, (3) to develop facility in the use of short cuts and rapid mental calculations, and (4) to develop desirable habits and attitudes essential for success in business and every day life.
