Welcome to our Financial Education and Math Blog! Not a great title, but to the point, right? So what's the point. We at the Math Forum want to help create useful resources for teachers to use in their math classrooms that will help students see how important math is in understanding their money and money management. We recognize there is a big push for financial education in schools these days and a great deal of concern that students are leaving schools without some useful life skills that are related to money. We also recognize that teachers need to have resources for their classrooms and for themselves, since in their teacher education programs there was not a whole lot of focus on teaching financial education methods or the like. As we develop our resources, we want to include as much teacher feedback and advice as possible because we feel that teachers are the best judge of what will be useful for them in their classrooms.

What can you expect to see here?
  • Relevant and recent articles on financial education topics
  • Ideas for classroom activities and where they might fit into math topics (i.e. instead of teaching this example, you can use this financial example)
  • Links to Math Forum resources that might be of use
  • Resources that seem useful from other people/sites/organizations
  • And more...as it seems relevant
Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again soon.
