NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation Correlation by Task

In this course, the following tasks/competencies reinforce the standards listed beside them. Teachers may identify additional reinforcements in locally developed instructional materials.

Task/Competency Number Task/Competency Statement Standards
49 Key numeric data, using the touch system with techniques to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation: Apply basic mathematical operations to solve problems. ♦ Estimate and then calculate answers to problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. ♦ Select and use appropriate tools when solving problems (e.g., paper and pencil, manipulatives, hand-held calculators, Web calculators, computer numerical keypads, spreadsheets, personal desktop assistants, and cell phones.
50 Convert fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions in personal and business applications. NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation: Determine the correct mathematical processes to use for various problem situations and use formulas when appropriate. ♦ Select and use appropriate tools when solving problems (e.g., paper and pencil, manipulatives, hand-held calculators, Web calculators, computer numerical keypads, spreadsheets, personal desktop assistants, and cell phones. ♦ Solve problems involving whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percents, ratios, averages, and proportions. ♦ Solve problems that involve percents, ratios, averages, and proportions and use appropriate conversions (e.g., decimals to percents, percents to decimals, or ratios to percents) when necessary.
51 Convert decimals to percents and percents to decimals in personal and business applications. NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation: Apply basic mathematical operations to solve problems. ♦ Determine the correct mathematical processes to use for various problem situations and use formulas when appropriate. ♦ Select and use appropriate tools when solving problems (e.g., paper and pencil, manipulatives, hand-held calculators, Web calculators, computer numerical keypads, spreadsheets, personal desktop assistants, and cell phones. ♦ Solve problems involving whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percents, ratios, averages, and proportions. ♦ Solve problems that involve percents, ratios, averages, and proportions and use appropriate conversions (e.g., decimals to percents, percents to decimals, or ratios to percents) when necessary.
52 Round whole numbers and decimals in personal and business applications. NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation: Round numbers for estimation and other purposes.
53 Calculate sales tax in personal and business applications. NBEA Achievement Standards for Computation: Apply basic mathematical operations to solve problems. ♦ Calculate the total sales and the sales tax for a sales transaction.
57 Prepare cash receipts records.
