Resource for Educators: Money as You Learn

The President’s Advisory on Financial Capability recently went live with, a new financial education resource for K-12 educators.

Money as You Learn offers educators tools to integrate personal finance into the teaching of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts (coming soon), as well as into other classes and after-school programs.

Website Features
  • Personal Finance Big Ideas
    These describe grade-by-grade foundational understandings of personal finance that would lead students to an action or a higher level of function and that can be integrated into teaching the Common Core.
  • Mathematics – Financial Literacy Tasks and Lessons
    A listing, by grade band, shows which Common Core Mathematics Standards can benefit from contexts and applications based on the grade-appropriate Personal Finance Big Ideas. The list leads to mathematical tasks and lessons for use in the classroom and can be sorted by Common Core Mathematics Standard or by Personal Finance Big Ideas.
