Here are some tips for using infographics to teach Consumer Math in high school:
Our homeschool students need practical life-skill information when it comes to consumer math and financial literacy.
I’ve been delighted to find lots of infographics available at no cost for use in learning about these subjects.
Infographics (in case you don’t know) are visual representations of information designed to be an overview or starting point in understanding. They are not complete, but they provide a GREAT way to get the ball rolling when studying things like finance.
Using Infographics to Teach Consumer Math in High School
Of course infographics only give a TASTE of the material your student needs to understand, but a taste can get them started!
(For a full “smorgasboard” of learning, you need 7Sisters’ Financial Literacy from a Christian Perspective!)
Here are some neat ones I’ve found:
- Leasing vs. Buying a Car
- What to Buy When
- Grocery Shopping Budget Tips
- Planning for Retirement
- Life Insurance
- Living Paycheck to Paycheck
- Student Debt
- Wedding Expense
