Additional information for teachers
Most often, the center is visited by high school students and first-year university students, as knowledge of monetary policy and macroeconomics is part of the learning process, for example, in the study of the subject "Economics" in high schools.
The content of the exhibition is designed considering the interests and level of knowledge of this audience, and the presentation is oriented towards visitors aged 14 and above.
In the knowledge center "Money World," teachers can use self-developed worksheets as well as standardized worksheets developed by the staff of the "Money World" knowledge center in Latvian language. Their goal is to promote understanding of the concepts explained in the exhibition, but they are not developed according to the school curriculum. Therefore, we invite teachers to explore the new content of the exhibition and create worksheets tailored to their own lesson plans.
