Exploring financial identity

through maths and statistics

Learning experiences and formative assessment tasks in this resource have been aligned to SOLO Taxonomy to ensure cohesiveness, constructive alignment and cognitive stretch for all students. This gives both teachers and students choice throughout the learning and teaching process.

This resource encourages students to apply mathematical skills and knowledge in a financial context. Students explore their financial identity and behaviours when managing their money, spending, saving and taking on debt.

This resource is designed as an integrated, cross-curricular resource, supporting the theme of identity. It can be used in multiple ways to support teaching and learning. Related resources are also available for social sciences, English and technology (digital technologies).

This resource is designed for flexibility and choice. There are a range of resources to choose from, so schools and teachers can design programmes that allow:

  • Students to work at their own pace using a student planner
  • Teachers to design a programme that suits department, faculty or whole-school planning over a few weeks or a term. This will vary from school to school.
