How It Works
The only personal finance education site that features a real-time stock market simulation AND integrated Personal Finance/Economics/Business curriculum. Teachers choose the curriculum they want their students to complete, and every time their students log into to check on their stock portfolio they are prompted to access the lessons and take “pop-quizzes” in order to progress through the required activities.
Built-in standards-based curriculum for Personal Finance, Economics and Business.
Choose from hundreds of activities, with built-in quizzes to assess concept mastery.
Build weekly interactive assignments, fusing customized articles and videos with the stock game to keep students engaged.
Activities hosted on one site
All on the cloud - teachers and students can access all activities, assignments, and features from anywhere with an internet connection.
Includes stock quotes, charts, news, financial statements, company profiles, analyst ratings so students do not need to leave the site to do research.
Personal Finance, Economics, and Business should be the most exciting topics at any school, but too many students are getting left behind. Personal Finance Lab gives teachers the tools they need to transform their classroom into a 21st century laboratory for learning.
Uplift every student by blending the excitement of the financial markets with concrete exercises and examples, all tied together in a way that is accessible for every student.Learn More
