My school is a Title 1 school with more than 650 students. My students are of mixed gender and cultural backgrounds and some with limited English. Our school emphasizes project based learning, math and science. My students are particularly interested in learning about science technology and have developed an increasing interest in financial literacy. My students learn best if they can make real-world connections. I want my students to be exposed the fundamentals of business and investing and hopefully become entrepreneurs.
I teach at a Math and Science Magnet school. We serve elementary students. Our goal is to engage students in learning that they can apply throughout school and in their future.
We look for math connections in the real world all the time.
The Stock Market Game is a perfect opportunity to do that! Students will be calculating percentages, multiplying/dividing, looking at ratios and much more even without them realizing it because the learning is couched in this online simulation.
My students will gain much knowledge in math, the market and so much more if you help support our project.
