Learn to use the Stock Market GameTM as a valuable educational tool for both teachers and students from the comfort of your home during this on-demand, virtual mini-course!

The Stock Market GameTM allows students to manage a virtual investment portfolio and compete with teams across the state. Students learn saving and investing, sharpen math and research skills, and experience market forces at work. After participating in the SMG, independent studies show an increase in math scores for elementary and middle school students. It is also a proven way to learn many of the SOL in the high school economics and personal finance course, and a great way to prepare for the W!se Financial Literacy Certification assessment.

No prior knowledge of the stock market is necessary.
