This curriculum guide for consumer mathematics was developed to establish statewide curriculum standards for the Louisiana Competency-based Education Program. Following an overview of the secondary school mathematics curriculum, 15 goals for the consumer mathematics course are listed. A pacing chart with suggested time periods for each major topic is given. This is followed by the curriculum outline and performance objectives for each of the eight topics: personal finances, transportation, housing, taxes, insurance, money saving activities, investment, and budgeting. In the next section, activities are detailed for the various topics. A list of references and resource materials is included. Evaluative techniques are briefly discussed, and an answer key is provided. (MNS)
