STEM students will be learning all about financially literacy using Dave Ramsey's "Foundations in Personal Finance"

The curriculum is a 6 week course on how to manage money (earning, saving, spending, and giving) using "real life" scenarios. After learning about the ins and outs of money management, the students are given a career in which they earn income and must decide how to budget that income. 

Along with budgeting, students will also learn about investment opportunities to "win with money." Using simple and compound interest formulas, students calculate how much $$ they can make on each investment situation.
