Choose Your Curriculum

Build “Assignments” by picking lessons from our library of over 300 activities. Mix and match depending on what you’re teaching in class – each assignment has its own start and due dates.

Customize!

Want your students to work in teams? You got it! Only let students trade Options after week 4? No problem! Only let them invest half their portfolio in stocks, the rest in mutual funds or bonds? We built that right in!

Rankings Keep Students Engaged

Class rankings might not seem like much at first, but this is a proven way to get – and keep – your students’ attention. As they build their portfolio, they also complete your assignments and track their progress!

notes

Match Your Class To The Real World

Students need to take notes every time they make a trade – letting you match their trading diary with the topics covered in class. This helps students connect your class to the world around them.
