Running a business without a
budget is like trying to steer a ship on a cloudy day without a compass—it’s
far too easy to sail off course. Money Tracks helps you teach your
students why budgets are so important, prepares you to discuss various types of
budgets, and maps out your discussion of the characteristics that effective
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about the nature of budgets, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 24 slides.
"This is a great LAP
for my Personal Finance students. Of course, we talk a lot about budgets in
Personal Finance, and with this LAP, they see how you can actually make a
career out of being good with budgeting skills."
