  • Financial Literacy (for Teens) is a content-driven, visually stimulating, and media-rich online economics and personal finance resource specifically designed for students in grades 7–12. Maintaining the gold standard set by Rosen Digital's inaugural product, Teen Health & Wellness: Real Life, Real Answers, Financial Literacy delivers curriculum-correlated content; promotes digital literacy and 21st-century learning skills; and offers research, report, and homework help.  Developed for teen learners with their unique learning styles and sensibilities in mind, Financial Literacy features a straightforward, easy-to-navigate interface. Teen-friendly articles make economics and personal finance both readily comprehensible and highly engaging. Dynamic videos and relevant photos enhance and extend learning. Financial tools and interactive calculators give teens hands-on practice in financial computation for real-world situations.
