Abstract—Financial management is one of the necessary
skills in life; as one matures, the use of financial management
frequency will be greatly increased. Because financial thinking
can be cultivated, growing the habit of financial management
and understanding financial-related knowledge at a young age
can have a great effect on fostering future financial behavior.
Therefore, in this study the research team integrated financial
behavior education into homework assignments and
encouraged students to improve. The research team asked
students to take the costs of a specific period of school time as
the subject of study and then use software to make an animation
of their financial management while acquiring software
application skills. For example, Student A, through the
homework preparation process, paid attention to the impact of
financial behavior. From the animation of charts and figures, it
was apparent that Student A had acquired mathematical
quality, scientific quality, aesthetic quality, and management
quality. Student A eventually became a maker by creating an
animation about financial management and cultivating a
problem-solving spirit. In this progress, Student A’s STEAM
(science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics)
abilities were upgraded, as were Student A’s innovative,
independent thinking and problem-solving skills.
Index Terms—Financial thinking, self-breakthrough, financial behavior education, financial management animation.
