Dollars and Sense II Lesson 3
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 3 contains two computer “hands-on” simulations designed to introduce students to the basics of how credit card interest charges work. In this lesson students will experience how the costs of credit card borrowing can quickly escalate, sometimes beyond their control!

Complex Systems Connection: Short and Long Term Conflicts. Managing money, in personal finances or in running a business, often involves setting both short-term and long-term goals. Sometimes goals are in conflict between these timeframes, such as spending now versus saving/investing for future financial well-being. The lessons in Dollars and Sense II illustrate both immediate and long-term impacts, both beneficial (to savers) and harmful (to debtors) of compound interest on overall financial health.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 4
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 4 contains three computer “hands-on” simulations designed to let students explore different types of Installment Loans, including auto loans, home mortgages, and personal loans.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 5
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Building on the introduction to credit card use in Lesson 3, Lesson 5 contains two computer hands-on simulations that are designed to help students extend their understanding of real world, ongoing credit card use and its relationship to one’s overall personal finances. The simulations challenge students to both create and then address personal scenarios of interest while further managing ongoing credit card use in the larger context of saving, spending, and savings goals.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 6
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This lesson (Lesson 6) contains five computer simulations designed to broaden students’ ability to manage long-term installment loans as part of their larger personal finances. Building on their new understanding of compounding Interest, students will evaluate the impact of three real world systems over the life of the loan: DEPRECIATION (where the value of an item or property falls over time at a regular rate); APPRECIATION (where value increases); and Net annual INCOME GROWTH (where personal buying power increases). Students will revisit the different types of Installment Loans from Lesson 4 to experiment with and evaluate the effects of changing VALUE and INCOME on their decisions about whether or not to pursue Installment Loans.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 7
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 7 contains three computer simulations, each intended to challenge students to apply what they have learned in previous lessons to help a desperate individual or couple with a looming financial catastrophe. Though each of the problems presented involves a slightly different concern, they all involve a combination of credit card and loan issues complicated by imbalances relating to spending. Can personal finance issues of these people be salvaged? And if so, at what cost and what trade-offs?

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 8
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Dollars and Sense II Lesson 8 consists of a single computer simulation with two exercises offering students AND interested adults an opportunity to see where they stand financially and build their desired financial futures. That future will be likely to incorporate all of the financial elements covered in earlier lessons, including monetary ASSETS (savings and retirement funds), property EQUITY (partial or full ownership of a home or car), multiple forms of LIABILITY (credit card, car loan, and home mortgage debt), in addition to regular income and spending.

Dollars and Sense Lesson 1
Author(s): Jeff Potash, & John Heinbokel Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 1 from Dollars and Sense: Stay in the Black: Saving and Spending a Personal Finance Curriculum. In developing an understanding of how the pieces of our economic system work together, students should start with a deepened understanding of their own finances. This set of lessons focuses on core saving and spending systems that shape the outcomes of personal financial decisions. Future modules will link these saving and spending concepts with other important elements of personal finance (investment, credit, debt, and human capital).
