Unit Three


“Financial Survival Skills- Understanding The Game” prepares students for financial success by helping them understand the rules of financial institutions.  Not only does it stress the importance of making the most of the financial systems, but it also warns students of ways they may be taken advantage of, specifically avoiding bank fees, high interest rates, cycles of recurring debt, and predatory loans.
