Teacher & Student Resources
Help your students prepare for life on their own! The Building Your Future series helps students easily grasp the essentials of personal finance, gives them multiple opportunities to practice core skills and showcases the real-world impact of the financial decisions they make.
This four-part financial literacy program features interactive PDFs to provide high school students with hands-on experience in all phases of money management, from spending wisely through investing for long-term wealth. Along the way, students practice the math skills essential for a financially healthy life, including the use of modern math technologies such as spreadsheets and online calculators. Each part of the program can be implemented on its own to allow customization for your math, economics, and life skills curricula. Additionally, each section is classroom-ready with a teacher’s guide that includes handouts, answer keys, instruction and assessment suggestions.
Building Your Future aligns with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Jump$tart Coalition for Financial Literacy.
