And really, all the math you need to know for personal finance they teach you by the end of middle school.

Greetings, bingocards, that's just the nuts and bolts. What they FORGET to teach is how will that math hogtie you and lash you to a pole while the lightning storm of interest owed threatens to strike you with regularity. Because of what we never connected of our lessons to the real world out there is exactly why there is a CC/CD board at the Fool, and bless the Motley brothers for having created this venue when our 8th grade teachers did or could not.
