The need for quantitative financial literacy and numeracy education in our schools is undeniable. The goal of this session is to offer teachers a rationale and framework for creating and teaching a quantitative financial literacy mathematics course that is applications-oriented and technology-dependent. Modeling finance using advanced algebra assists students in seeing the relevance of the mathematics they are learning.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Methods to introduce the finance, build strength in the mathematics, and assist in making that mathematics transferrable to other contexts.
- How math can be explored in the contexts of discretionary expenses, banking, credit, auto ownership, employment, taxes, housing, investing, entrepreneurship, retirement, and budgeting.
- What to tell students when they ask: "When are we ever going to use this?" - "Every day of your lives!!"
