Introduction and General Overview

Your students are about to begin their own personal finance adventure. They will be in complete control of their finances and will have to live with the decisions they make.

To begin their adventure, they will be asked to select one of the 8 available incomes (User Choice) or let the program select an income for them (Random).

•$18,000

•$25,000

•$30,000

•$35,000

You may want to assign your students an income. Obviously, the higher their income, the easier it will be to make it on their own. Therefore, we suggest you give them the opportunity to try living on different incomes. They will also be asked to choose where they want to live from the 12 available cities (User Choice) or let the program choose a city for them (Random).

•Atlanta, Georgia

•Casper, Wyoming

•Chicago, Illinois

•Des Moines, Iowa

•Eugene, Oregon

•Fitchburg, Massachusetts

Again, you may want to assign your students a city. Since the cost of living will vary dramatically from city to city, we suggest you give them the opportunity to live in more than one community. Once they have determined their income and location, their goal is to make it on their own for a full year while trying to accumulate as many lifestyle points as possible. During their adventure, they will be facing 52 individual weeks of financial and personal decisions as well as events outside of their control. The timeline at the bottom of the main work screen will always show them which week they are in during the year. Their adventure begins in June and ends the following May. At any time during the year, if they run out of money and cannot make a payment, they will go bankrupt and their adventure is over.
