Personal finance is part knowledge and part skill – and the Building Your Future book series, published by the Actuarial Foundation, gives students a foundation in both. It addresses knowledge by covering the essential principles of banking in Book One, financing in Book Two, investing in Book Three, and succeeding in Book Four. The series also addresses the mathematical skills that students need to live a financially healthy life. Students will be able to see the real-world consequences of mastering their finances, which helps them understand the relevance of good mathematical skills.
Building Your Future gives high school age students multiple opportunities to practice core skills and showcases the real-world impact of the financial decisions they make. Each of the four books in the series are classroom-ready with a teacher’s guide that includes handouts, answer keys, instruction and assessment suggestions. The PDF version of all four student booklets + teacher guides are free to download from their site. Printed copies can be ordered inexpensively.
