This support document for the Grade 12 Essential Mathematics course is designed to be a project spanning several days in order to meet the Home Finance learning outcome. While the document is not the only way this unit can be covered, it provides several possible approaches as well as vocabulary with which students should become familiar. Buying a house is the biggest financial investment that most consumers will make in their lifetime. It is therefore critical that students learn to make informed decisions, given that they will be involved in this kind of transaction at some point in their lives. To make the discussions as authentic as possible, the project explores buying, renting, and maintaining a home. In this document, the terms “housing” or “home” mean a house, apartment, or condominium.
