The contents include:

Lesson 1: What does stuff really cost

Using Consumer Price Index data, students examine recent average prices for basic goods in the real world.

Lesson 2: In the hunt for consumer goods

Using contemporary local print ads, students search for the prices of objects that satisfy scavenger hunt criteria, and then find cheaper alternatives, also locally.

Lesson 3: Buying power in time and space

Using Consumer Price Index data and an online calculator, students model the effect of inflation on prices and the value of a dollar. Using Cost-of-Living Index data, students compare the cost of maintaining the same standard of living in different U.S. cities.

Lesson 4: Building a budget

Students learn the components of a budget and practice creating one for a typical young, single adult with financial goals.
