Setting Goals

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to solve problems involving division of decimals in the real-world context of setting financial goals. The focus of the task is on modeling and understanding the concept of setting financial goals, so fluency with the computations will allow them to focus on other aspects of the task. This task is also good preparation for the study of ratios and proportional relationships in 6th and 7th grade and their lead-in to linear functions in 8th grade. This task is part of a set collaboratively developed with Money as You Learn, an initiative of the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
