Money Money Money very effectively examines the concept of money and how we use it in our daily lives. Students are asked to examine our notes and coins both from a historical aspect and from a production and security aspect, and are required to complete mathematical activities in such areas as hire purchase, interest and banking.
They are introduced to concepts such as using cheques, ATMs, credit cards and EFTPOS, and are able to play the stock exchange and convert overseas currencies. Other activities will emphasize the responsibilities associated with borrowing money and using credit, together with providing an introductory look at the Goods and Services Tax.
Money Money Money contains a variety of Internet addresses to assist in doing the activities, although online access is not necessary to complete the worksheets.
