The University of Mary Washington Center of Economic Education participates in the Stock Market Game through Virginia Counsel of Economic Education. The SMG is an online simulation of the real-life stock market that helps sharpen skills in math, social studies and language arts. It is a comprehensive economics and personal finance education program for Grades 4 to 12. Small student teams compete for awards by investing $100,000 in an online, virtual portfolio. The adult advisor registers the student teams. Student teams are provided online access to their own online investment portfolio. Students research and apply their investment ideas in a real-world market environment.
