Buying a car is a big investment, one of the biggest investments many of us will ever make. Spending some time and effort before you buy will save time and money in the long run, and you'll be happier with your new car knowing you made the best deal possible. Not all car dealers are created equal so a little comparison shopping can provide you with the knowledge that gives you control. Car sales people love to sell cars to people that let emotion make their buying decisions. Buying a car has no room for emotional choices so it must be treated like a business transaction. Park your fears, frustrations, and anxieties as this lesson could help you save a truckload of money! Many people experience “math anxiety”. This is a common phenomenon that can be addressed by exploring one’s feelings about math and one’s past experiences that employed mathematical concepts for various reasons. Braiding mathematics, language, and thinking can facilitate comprehension. The braiding system is applicable to comparison shopping, as language/vocabulary, thinking/lateral thinking and the math operations necessary to comparison shop meld together to reinforce learning.


Learners will understand that cognition plays a part in basic math operations. They will use language, thinking and math concepts in order to solve a simple math problem. By comparing car prices, students will use subtraction to find the 'better buy'.
