Great real-world application of finance/econ concepts in a mission based game enviroment.

The missions are challenging. They require critical thinking and problem solving, as students must seek out the information that they need and then apply it to the situation to come up with a solution. The lessons also practice math skills as they calculate take home pay, APR, and other business math calculations. I personally love this program. My students start out hating it because it does require them to think. But at the end, I ask them, did you learn anything doing this that will affect the rest of your life? They all admit that they learned a lot and that the missions taught them valuable skills and information.
