Title: The Stock Market Game in the Math Classroom


1
The Stock Market Game in the Math Classroom
By Mindy Robison
2
What is the SMG?
  • The Stock Market Game (SMG) is a ten-week
    simulation of Wall Street trading that provides a
    framework for teaching Utah students about the
    American economic system.

3
How Does it Work
For ten weeks, during the fall and spring school
semesters, students invest a hypothetical
100,000 in common stocks on the New York and
American Stock Exchanges and on the Nasdaq
market. During the ten weeks, teams submit their
transactions and receive daily portfolios
highlighting their current holdings, brokerage
fees, margin interest, and team ranking.
4
Teacher Support
Twice a year, a free conference is held at the
Homestead Resort in Midway, Utah to help
introduce teachers to the Stock Market Game.
This training will help you become more familiar
with the game. You can also go to
http//www.stockmarketgame.org to learn more
about the program.

What Students Will Gain
Students who participate in the program gain
confidence and build self-esteem. They have fun
and learn more effectively as they see how their
classroom lessons apply to the real world.
7
Why in Math
The game not only reinforces many mathematical
concepts, but it is a real-life application of
everyday math. The game also teaches critical
thinking and problem solving.

Students are not the only ones to benefit from
exposure to The Stock Market Game.
  • Teachers of The Stock Market Game reported that
    the program influenced their financial practices.
    In a nationwide survey conducted as part of the
    study, many teachers reported that they were
    influenced to set financial goals, analyze their
    risk tolerance, read the business section of the
    newspaper, and watch financial programs as a
    result of teaching the game.

11
  • Teachers have discovered that the Stock Market
    Game program actually boosts attendance and
    reduces dropout rates.

What students gain from The Stock Market Game is
a remarkable experience and even more
important, an education for life!
