High school students need a better foundation in financial literacy skills. We can help!
We're committed to preparing students for a successful future, not just on tests today, but throughout their lives tomorrow. Unfortunately, the U.S. currently ranks 14th in financial literacy, and a 2016 survey indicated that only 31% of young Americans (ages 18 to 26) agreed that their high school education did a good job of teaching them healthy financial habits.
That's why we built a brand new financial literacy module into MATHia, our math learning software, to help your students build these critical skills. In this new module, students learn how to calculate taxes, discounts and interest, the difference between nominal interest rate and APR, how to make sound financial decisions, and more.
