Encouraging money management and math skills
Moneyopolis is an interactive site that allows children to play an on-line game where they are encouraged to use their math skills, set goals as well as think about such issues as getting an afterschool job, volunteering and budgeting. There is also a parent section which has outlines of discussion to have with your children about money managment issues. Additionally, there is an educator section which allows teachers to have their entire class play the on-line game and track individual student's progress. The site was originally created by Ernst and Young to encourage development of math skills.
