Who will want to listen to this show?

If you want to teach your K12 students financial literacy and math skills, you'll benefit from listening to this show and what Beth is doing with her students. Enterprise city is a fascinating model.

My favorite thing about the show is when Beth reflects upon her 30 years of teaching math and how math teaching has changed over the years. It is also interesting to me how she feels about the fact that her 6th graders aren't included in the 1:1 laptop initiative in Maine (it starts in 7th grade).
