The Grades 9-12 Student Workbook was designed to be used with Financial Fitness for Life's teacher guide to teach personal finance. You will measure your students' progress in four themes of personal finance: earning an income, saving, spending and credit, and money management. Between these four themes there are 22 lessons, each focusing on a different topic and ranging in length from one 45-minute period to a week's worth of classroom experience.


Lessons for older students illustrate certain uses of more abstract representations. Specific to grades 9-12 are a variety of activities, including The Millionaire Game, which teaches students about the characteristics of millionaires; a budgeting exercise that shows students the importance of savings; and a chapter on finding the best deal on an auto loan.
