The First Bank of North Ward
During math class in August and the first part of September, I will be teaching the students the basics of "real-world" math.  In this "real world" application of math I will focus on how to set up and maintain a checking account.  Students will have to create a budget and learn how to manage personal finances.  They will be required to pay bills after they receive a paycheck for "coming to work". 

 

Students earn money by:
  • returning weekly reports on time... Monday=$25, Tuesday=$15.

  • providing a service to other students such as decorating lockers, cleaning out desks, organizing binders etc...

  • turning in all assignments on time for the week.

  • raising grade updates by the end of the nine week quarter.

  • displaying good behavior.

  • "That's Life" drawings.

Students need to budget for:
  • bills due on the 10th of each month.  Rent: $100, Electricity: $25, Water: $25

  • not turning in homework assignments.

  • borrowing supplies.

  • extra trips to the bathroom, locker, water fountain, etc...

  • auction items.

  • extra checks and deposit slips.

  • "That's Life" drawings.
