The Minnesota Council on Economic Education (MCEE) is proud to present the revised and expanded Mathematics and Economics: Grades K-5 curriculum. Math and Economics was developed in response to an increased need for interdisciplinary curriculum within the K-5 grade levels. The curriculum revisions focused on diversity, equity and inclusion throughout all lessons with particular attention given to access to all learners and anti-bias considerations. The result is a collection of K-5 Minnesota academic standards-based (Social Studies-Economics 2011 & 2021 draft standards and Math 2007 standards) and national academic standards-based (National Economic Standards and Common Core Standards for Mathematics) lessons and pre/post assessments. Lessons are adaptable for use in daily, after school, or summer school classrooms. Teachers have the content and pedagogy to successfully educate students using integrated math, economics and personal finance standards. Each grade-level unit contains lessons related to the following topics: Decision Making, Personal Finance, and Business/Production.
