Selected Mathematics Applications (Level A): Operating A Store.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Presented is one of a series of resource guides designed to provide students with an improved mathematics program. This guide emphasizes real-life situations focusing on the operation of a store. Classes are divided into grocery, meat, produce, drugs, and hardware sections at the beginning of the course. Students learn how to organize, collect, and use data as they work through the program. Topics covered include the purchasing and pricing of goods, bookkeeping, tabulating expenses, and finding individual student grade averages at the completion of the course. The bulk of this document is a collection of worksheets designed to help students through individual mathematics laboratory experiences. The intent is to provide teachers with materials and guidelines to structure a course for secondary students that develops basic mathematical skills and concepts through application of "operating a store" experiences.
