Overview - BANKING MATH CHECK REGISTERS (10)
Banking Math is a reproducible program that uses realistic math scenarios to teach middle and high school students basic math concepts and financial responsibility. Written for students who struggle with word problems, the 100 one-paragraph banking math stories are both interesting and easy to read.
Lesson plans introduce students to the banking process using motivating activities. The first 20 stories are presented in two levels. In Level 1, the equations are provided. In Level 2, the students have to determine which math operation to use. Easy-to-follow math activities prepare students for word problems on state and national standardized math tests.
After carefully reading each low-level, high-interest banking story, students are asked to do the following:
• draw a line through unnecessary information
• highlight essential information
• show computations in the “Do the Math” space
• perform a banking transaction
• record the transaction on the check register page
The first 60 stories cover scenarios that middle and high school students might experience in their everyday lives. On the last worksheet of this section, the students ''graduate'' from high school. 40 additional stories cover banking scenarios that typically occur after graduation.
Banking Stories 1-20 (Level 1)
The math equation for each of the 20 stories is provided on the worksheet for the students to calculate. After working the math, students perform the needed banking transaction.
Banking Stories 1-20 (Level 2)
Using the same stories as Level 1, students now have to decide which math operation to use (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division), show their math, and perform the banking transactions.
Banking Stories (21-60)
40 new word problem stories are introduced. Students have to decide which math operation to use, show their math, and perform the banking transactions.
Banking Stories (61-100)
40 new word problem stories are presented for the students to complete, but the scenarios now focus on the students’ lives after high school.
Banking Math binder with lesson plans, an answer key, a reproducible check register page, and 120 reproducible Banking Math worksheets.
To enhance Banking Math's real-world application, 10 realistic check registers are sold separately.
