Due to considered one of Gary Stager’s latest LinkedIn posts I lately discovered about an fascinating highschool investing and saving exercise created by William Frey at Fryeburg Academy (just some cities over from the place I stay).
A Unit on Saving and Investing for Excessive College College students seems to be created to coincide with using The Inventory Market Sport. Within the unit college students collect and examine knowledge about monetary then use that data within the development of a portfolio. What’s fascinating about Mr. Frey’s exercise is that college students will be taught to make use of the Entity Framework in Wolfram’s Knowledgebase to create and compile comparisons. (Check out this web page for a demo of Wolfram’s Knowledgebase for finance).
Functions for Schooling
What makes Mr. Frey’s exercise excellent is that it may be used to introduce college students to programming ideas within the context of a real-world utility (figuring out and evaluating publicly traded corporations). This exercise takes The Inventory Market Sport from guide evaluation and hypothesis to programmatic choice.
