On Your Own Coast-to-Coast

This real-life simulation challenges your students to make it on their own in any of 12 cities across the United States. They will be in complete control of their finances and will have to live with the decisions they make.

Several options allow you to determine the length of the simulation, the size of their income, which city they live in and whether real life math problems are included. Your students can even choose from 20 different career paths.

Throughout the simulation “Life Happens” and your students have to deal with everyday expenditures, unexpected expenses and emergencies large and small. They will try to complete the simulation without going bankrupt while minimizing their credit usage and maximizing their Lifestyle Points. And each time they take the challenge, life changes.
