We are different because we need to be different. We don’t want student to simply pass our test. We want to achieve meaningful outcomes. We don’t want our next generation to be simply literate. We want them to be educated. We are the catalyst for this change.
Personal Financial Literacy is an excellent introduction to real life. But the Personal Financial Education taught by Real Life Financial Math is more effective at achieving meaningful outcomes. Click the banner above to learn more.
The world is changing. Students need to be actively engaged in the changes. RLFM was created as a blended online course to keep it up-to-date. The curriculum is modified based on what we learn from our students in terms of cultural barriers and personal experiences. We also update the curriculum with new financial information. Since the world is rapidly changing, we need to keep up with that change to prepare our students to take on today’s challenges and develop the critical thinking needed to succeed and change the world.

Meet our Interns
Trinh NguyenSummer Intern – 2017
1. Why did I choose FMA to support?
When I graduated from high school, I had no idea how to finance my college tuition. I ended up going to a private university blind sighted and had a very rough start. If I had help, whether it is a course or someone that can advise me what to expect (financially) after high school, it would help me tremendously. Therefore, when I found out about FMA, I was very interested in the program because I truly believe that the advanced math course that FMA offers can help so many people to be better prepared and planned their future financial, particularly, the high school students that are transiting to a new chapter of their lives.
2. How do you support FMA?
I am an intern so I will be assisting and supporting the team in all aspects to implement FMA course in many secondary schools in Texas as possible.
3. What are my favorite books and hobbies?
My favorite books are “The Orphan Train” – Christina Baker Kline, “Nineteen Minutes” – Jodi Picoult, “The Memory Keeper’s Daughter” – Kim Edwards, and “Outliers” – Malcolm Gladwell.

5. Favorite restaurant and where is it located
I have multiple favorite restaurants but I would have to say my most favorite restaurant is Gen Korean BBQ in Dallas, Texas.
