Consumer Math Worksheets
What is Consumer Math? Consumer mathematics is that branch which consists of basic mathematical skills that relate directly to purchasing products and services of all kinds. It is the form of math used to maintain life after your graduate high school. In other words, everyone needs to learn fundamental mathematical skills such that calculating taxes, estimating the monthly budget, shopping expenses or about compound interest. If kids learn these concepts at the earliest of ages, they can implement them throughout their lives. To teach them the concept of consumer math, give your kids some real-life examples so they can use them continuously. As many people learn in their twenties, this is some of the most important real world math that you should master early. I remember getting my first mortgage and thanking the bankers as if they did my family the biggest favor ever in my life. After I learned about market conditions and interest rate, I realized that we were taken advantage of because we didn't compare rates.
