Module 3: Money Market Instruments, Stocks, Bonds, and Derivatives 1.0 is now complete and ready for your use.
Minds on the Markets was adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy. Our University was closed for a period of time and unfortunately the posting of the modules have been delayed.
We are anticipating posting Modules 3, 4 and 5 on the website in the next couple of weeks. We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the delay.
In view of our delay, during the first year of Minds on the Markets, the following is planned:
- There will be 8 modules featuring Instructor Notes, PowerPoints, Activities, Glossaries and at least one video per module showcasing a financial world leader.
- There will be 2 challenges, one after Module 5 and the other after Module 8.
- Both challenges will be assessed by Hofstra professors. You can submit one of your student group's work to be assessed.
- The winning team, from all of our schools, will be brought to New York City for three days (with their teacher, of course) in late June.
We are anxious to have your feedback about Module 1 and 2. Your comments will help inform the future modules this year. In addition, we have plans to edit/revise the modules for next year based on this year's experience. Your suggestions/ideas will be very helpful in that regard as well.
Please provide the following feedback:
About the program
What is Minds on the Markets 1.0?
Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business and the School of Education, Health, and Human Services have collaborated with the NASDAQ OMX Foundation to teach high school students about financial markets.
Minds on the Markets 1.0, an eight module curriculum developed by Hofstra University, will be available for implementation in the 2012-2013 school year. Video interviews with experts in the field of finance accompany each module and make Minds on the Markets a unique, educational experience. All materials are free of charge.
How do schools participate?
Teachers of Social Studies, Business Education, and Economics can participate in either the Fall or Spring term or over the course of the full year.
After completing Modules 4 and 8, challenges are provided for student teams to collaboratively solve. The challenges will be assessed by Hofstra University professors. The winning team of the final challenge will be invited to New York for a three-day, whirlwind financial tour. The winning team members will also be invited to ring the closing bell at the NASDAQ in Times Square.
