The motivation to learn something new often comes from realizing how useful that knowledge will be in the future. This title helps provide that motivation for young math students by showing them ways various math operations are used in everyday financial transactions, from shopping to banking. To ease the intimidation some students feel about math, examples include simple tasks most students may already be doing. Content builds on this past experience and gives readers a possible glimpse of their futures by also briefly introducing financial careers that relate to some of the tasks used as examples.
