Workshop Description: The Council for Economic Education, NY, is pleased to offer free professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.

To succeed in our world, students will need to know how to save for retirement and how to use spreadsheets. Explore how these topics can be the basis for a rewarding high school mathematics lesson. Spreadsheet software such as Excel provides a fresh approach to teaching functions and variables by using them to model payment series such as retirement savings, mortgages and student loan repayments.

In this webinar we will show how to estimate how much money students (or a teacher) will need when they retire. This approach provides a tangible application of recursive and explicit formulae for students. The webinar uses activities from the FiCycle Curriculum and will give participants a taste of what a mathematics-based, financial literacy course might look like.

Session Presenter: Andy Davidson is the founder of Financial Life Cycle Education, a not-for-profit that has developed a high school mathematics course organized around principles of finance. In addition, he is president of Andrew Davidson & Co., a leading provider of analytical tools to the mortgage industry. He has an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Harvard and an MBA in Finance from the University of Chicago.

When you attend the webinar, you will leave with relevant lessons, resources and tools that can be implemented the next day. If you are interested, but cannot attend the live webinar, please register to get access to the archived version.
