We are still working on getting everyone registered with all their vendors selected and ready to start tomorrow by 9:00 pm.  Read on about the rules of the game, look at the first quiz questions you will have due on Feb. 21 - which you could do now if you wanted to.  All the skills you will need to be successful at this simulation are those we covered during our first semester.  An overall review of those skills might be in order!

Continue to completion of your registration with the Budget Challenge simulation - including choosing your vendors, as well as familiarizing yourself with all aspects of playing in the simulation.  Don't forget your parental permission forms!!!!

Other than working on the check register and reconciliation handouts you took home, there are no new sections to read in the textbooklet.  We will be staying with checking accounts for awhile - want to get it right!

Complete the check register assignment you took home.  We will turn that in and work on reconciliation of register to bank statement.

As mentioned in class Wednesday, there will be a quiz on the "Investing" textbooklet on Monday. Prepare for this quiz by reviewing your notes and the booklet materials through page 27.  We will not be spending much time on the remainder of this "Investing"  booklet, as most of you have indicated you do not own stock are not very interested in investing in the stock market.  Moving on to "Financial Services."

No homework over the break, but a good time to check and see what assignments you might be missing. Last chance to get those in is January 16, 2018.  WAIT - no worries - that's not until next year!!

Though we did not make it to page 17 in our textbooklet last class, everyone should read the next 10 pages (to page 27) in the event that we are able to make it past that point on Monday.  There will probably be an exit ticket drawn from the reading we have done so far in this new "Investing" book.

In your new textbooklet “Investing” read through page 17.  Come prepared Monday to finish discussing the last part of “Earning Power” involving topics revolving around employment.
