In this 3-day initiative, students will differentiate between wealth and cash in terms of financial well-being. They will then delve into real-world problems around net-wealth, giving them an understanding of essential financial literacy topics and associated mathematical concepts. The initiative culminates in a lottery contest.
The math in this initiative is roughly at the level of Algebra I.
The semi-structured curriculum below is ready to be customized by teachers. We have provided a 3-day curriculum, of 45-minute lessons, that can be used at any time during the month of August.
Adjusting to meet your students' needs is strongly encouraged.
