Description:

The Math Forum at Drexel University has a website that focuses solely on teaching financial education in the math classroom. This wonderful resource provides curricula, weekly problems, and forums for teachers using the site's myriad resources. Visitors will see that the site has two main topics or categories: "Finance Topics" and "Math Topics". In the "Finance Topics" area visitors will find such areas as "Interest Rates", "Mortgages" and "Spending". Visitors should look at the exercise which teaches students that "interest never sleeps" in the "How Long Will it Take to Pay Off My Credit Card?" area. Under the Math Topics link, visitors will find such essentials as "Fractions, Decimals & Percents", "Ratios & Proportions", and "Polynomials". "Bartering for Bananas" is an exercise that teaches students that when "thinking about financial choices, we often consider trade-offs and ratios and proportions offer a great way to model those trade-offs exactly."
