This guide for high school consumer mathematics (one in a set of curriculum guides developed by Louisiana statewide mathematics curriculum committees) contains a course outline, performance objectives, and coordinated activities designed to teach skills that students will need as citizens and consumers. Background on the development, implementation, and use of the set of guides and lists of the various curriculum committee members are followed by a list of 15 student goals for the consumer mathematics course and a pacing chart indicating the number of weeks to devote to each topic. Topics for which there are objectives and activities are: (1) personal finances; (2) transportation; (3) housing; (4) taxes; (5) insurance; (6) money-saving activities; (7) investments; and (8) budgeting. Four suggested consumer mathematics student projects are described.
