This instructional unit was developed for use with a live interactive program that was delivered via satellite in October 1993, but it can also be used separately or incorporated into other teaching materials. The unit provides basic information on savings, investing, and buying a car. The following topics are covered in the guide's five sections: spending and saving, types of banks and accounts (types of institutions and accounts, factors and fees, and deposit insurance); other savings options (other investment options and factors to consider); the time value of money; and buying a car (comparing alternative methods of transportation). Each section contains background information and one or more learning activities. Also included are a glossary; an annotated list of 17 resources (publications, teaching guides, videos and filmstrips, and computer resources); and a list of 12 sources of additional information on savings, investing, and buying a car.
