Math Concepts and Topics

In thinking about the mathematical concepts that appear in financial topics I have started compiling a preliminary list, I was hoping others might have some ideas about topics I am missing and we could make this list a bit larger. In this version I have not added the financial topics, but I could do that if people think it would be helpful.

Any thoughts? What am I missing?

* Proportional Reasoning
* Fractions
* Arithmetic vs. Exponential Growth
* Percentages
* Expected Value

I think this will help us think about where we can fit financial examples into math classes.
