Abstract: 
This paper explores the infusion of financial literacy into the Mathematics curriculum in a
secondary school in Singapore. By infusing financial literacy, a core theme in the 21st
century framework, into mathematics education, this study investigated the impact of using
financial literacy-rich mathematics lessons by using validated learning environment
instruments. This study is part of a larger study to design, monitor, and evaluate an
innovative pedagogical approach of using authentic financial literacy examples to
reposition mathematics education in schools.
