A New Method in Teaching Financial Management to Students

Ting-Sheng Weng

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.
