    Mathematical finance provides a modern, attractive source of examples and case studies for scientific computing classes. In this installment of Education, I will show how educators can use the Nobel Prize-winning Black-Scholes option valuation theory to motivate exercises in Monte Carlo simulation, matrix computation, and numerical methods for partial differential equations (PDEs).
