Financial Literacy Education

Faced with an array of complex financial services and sophisticated products, many graduates lack the knowledge and skills to make rational, informed decisions on the use of their money and planning for future events, such as retirement. This book shows what you can do to improve financial literacy awareness and education. It covers the use of interactive games and tutorials, peer-to-peer mentoring, and financial literacy contests in addition to more formal education. Divided into three parts, the book covers financial literacy education for grades K-12, college, and post-college.

On the Money

As high school students make more and more important decisions, their need for financial literacy increases significantly. To succeed in life, they need both an understanding of financial issues and the math skills to make financially sound choices. This book's ten chapters provide lessons and activities on important financial skills to handle such experiences as making investments, buying insurance, understanding a credit score, leasing or buying a car, and choosing and paying for education after high school.
