MATH STANDARDS“One hallmark of mathematical understanding is the ability tojustify, in a way appropriate to the student’s mathematicalmaturity, why a particular mathematical statement is true orwhere a mathematical rule comes from. There is a world ofdifference between a student who can summon a mnemonicdevice to expand a product such as (a + b)(x + y) and a studentwho can explain where the mnemonic comes from. Thestudent who can explain the rule understands the mathematics,and may have a better chance to succeed at a less familiar tasksuch as expanding (a + b + c)(x + y).”Source: http://www.corestandards.org/Math

  22. 22. A stock’s beta number is one of many measures of how volatile its price is compared to themarket. Market analysts use sophisticated statistical tools to calculate the beta numbers foreach stock, but you can get an idea of what Beta measures by comparing the change in themarket to the change in price of a stock. To better understand beta numbers, calculate themonthly percentage change in each stock and in the S&P 500 in each table, using the followingformula: Percentage change from month ( price _ in _ month _ b) ( price _ in _ month _ a) a to month b 100 % = price _ in _ month _ a Expedia, Inc.
