Financial Literacy
The Financial Literacy Initiative at Dartmouth College advocates a quantitative approach to financial literacy for college students, K-12 students, future teachers and adult learners. The initiative supports this approach through contextually rich curriculum modules for classroom use, short video presentations for faculty development or classroom discussion, and case studies. This work was supported through a grant from the Social Security Administration.
Money Matters Modules for Teaching Financial Concepts
D. Wallace, K. Rheinlander, E. Gaze, C. Diefenderfer And many more (see individual modules for more authors)

A series of ten quantitative modules allows you and your students or workshop participants to explore the financial aspects of earning, spending, saving and investing. Each module includes an online slide presentation including videos and useful links. The presentation is supported by a set of online instructor notes suggesting activities, exercises, discussion questions and directions for further study or research. Also available online are spreadsheets and worksheets for students (and instructors) to use. Each module also has an associated case study and assessment tool, available upon request from Audrey Brown.

Modules may be used flexibly in conjunction with a variety of courses. They may be used independently to support an entire course, with student activities supporting about four classroom hours of work plus independent assignments. Alternatively they may be included as part of a course emphasizing developmental mathematics, quantitative literacy, college algebra, or financial literacy.
