Consumer Mathematics II is described as a one-year course for students in grades 9-12 who choose not to take an algebra course, but who need to broaden their mathematical understanding and skills. This curriculum guide is designed to be used in conjunction with a planbook and used as a resource in terms of long-range (semester or year) and short-range (individual lessons) planning. The guide presents everyday consumer situations and provides practice in the required mathematical skills.

In addition to the curriculum guide, this document also contains items particular to the Hamilton Township Schools (New Jersey): (1) a philosophy of mathematics education; (2) a philosophy of education; (3) an equal educational opportunity policy and practices statement; (4) T and E (Thorough and Efficient) goals and standards; and (5) a secondary grades marking policy.
