Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper explores the infusion of financial literacy into the Mathematics curriculum in a secondary school in Singapore. By infusing financial literacy, a core theme in the 21st century framework, into mathematics education, this study investigated the impact of using financial literacy-rich mathematics lessons by using validated learning environment instruments. This study is part of a larger study to design, monitor, and evaluate an innovative pedagogical approach of using authentic financial literacy examples to reposition mathematics education in schools. (Contains 3 tables.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
