Topics reviewed in this breakout include basic taxes, student loans, mortgages, auto loans, credit card debt, personal finance vocabulary, and interest calculation. The clue files include fictional student loan and credit card statements, which are nearly identical to what real statements look like. Students will have to budget to purchase a home, calculate the payoff for their student loans based on the standard 10-year repayment plan, compare auto loan companies to determine the best deal for their financial situation (provided for the story), calculate the interest for credit card debt, define basic personal finance terms, and do some research to understand basic tax terminology.
