    Life Skills Math Must

    I bought this for my boys who needed a lot of support with life skills math areas, and this book gave me peace of mind that they were understanding the importance of financial choices and they'll be prepared to independently handle their finances.

    Decided to go ahead and get for my 6th grader. I think this book is going to get passed around even to the grown children.

    I got this for my daughter as she graduates high school and ventures out on her own. I started reading it some and now the plan is for us to work through it together as I could use a lesson on financial management also!

    Math that makes sense

    We have a bunch of teens with various learning difficulties. This book is great at showing them WHY they need to know this stuff. Financial Choices is full of math that they will actually use in their adult lives.
