Are You Smarter Than a 7th Grader?

My wife’s 7th grade class is currently learning about percentage change so the math teacher at Jacob’s Fork Middle School has the students following stocks to demonstrate rates of return.  She asked me to come in this week and give a presentation to the kids about investing in the stock market. This was probably the most challenging presentation I’ve ever done.  But definitely the most fun!

Our presentation is embedded below. Links to each video are included in the speaker notes (it’s the only way I could figure out how to include both).  And don’t worry.  We clipped the last minute of the John Oliver video during the presentation to exclude Radio Shack’s “message” to America.  Even I have some boundaries!
