Free Financial Literacy Course for Ages 11-22

Hi! It’s Monday, October 21, 2013, and time for Math at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:

Age Range: 11-22 (middle school, high school, & college with parental guidance)

ClickScholar Michelle suggested this website provided by the American Financial Services Association (the national trade association for the consumer credit industry). As explained at the website, AFSA provides free financial literacy courses to educate middle school, high school, and college students on basic money management fundamentals in the content areas of:

  • Income
  • Expenses
  • Saving
  • Investing
  • Credit
  • Insurance

The site further explains that “the high school and college course is designed to be used as all or part of a course in economics, math, social studies or wherever personal finances are taught. Students can access the modules in the classroom or at home. Built-in quizzes test students’ grasp of each concept.

Two versions are available: High School/College and Middle School level.” 

The courses are free, but registration is required to access them. Completion of the registration process can take up to 2-3 days – so, plan ahead. 

When you get to the site you’ll find an explanation of the MoneySKILL program, and registration information. Use the menu on the left side of the page to experience a demonstration of how the interactive lessons work.  Basically, you’ll see the lesson text, hear an audio narration of it, and then be asked to answer multiple choice questions to test your knowledge of the subject matter.  In addition, “a life simulation module asks students to project their own financial life expectancies in areas such as employment, housing, transportation, education, marriage, family and retirement.” 

Again, the idea here is to provide students with money management skills that will last a lifetime.
