Math in the Real WorldThe Council for Economic Education has launched its newest resource: Math in the Real World. Math in the Real World contains interdisciplinary lessons aimed at teaching personal finance and economic concepts, all in the context of math lessons.

Math in the Real World includes lessons that range from “Break-Even Analysis” and “Profit Maximization” to lessons on payday loan expenses and building good credit.

CEE created Math in the Real World when it saw a gap between the teaching of math, economics, and personal finance. While many concepts of economics and personal finance overlap with math curriculum, many economics and finance teachers have not been trained to teach the higher level concepts and calculations of math. At the same time, math teachers may not focus their teaching on application of personal finance and economics. Math in the Real World was born with the intention to bridge this gap.
