Critical research in mathematics education (CME) has pointed out the urgent need to produce educational materials that emphasize real situations experienced by students so that learning becomes more meaningful. To contribute to the research on CME, in this article is presented teaching suggestions to Financial Mathematics (FM) through a pedagogical proposal guided by CME. It is essential that, when applying this proposal, the teacher aims to raise students’ awareness of the importance of the concepts of FM as a tool and to understand the reality in which they operate. The proposed content by pedagogic activities includes the study of concepts of exchange, investments and loans, for students to learn how FM is used socially. Still, this study suggests solving the proposed examples, through spreadsheets, because it offers more features than a calculator.
