Posted on 2014/10/03
Econ studentsCortez students are participating in the Take Charge Today Financial Education for a Better Future program designed by the University of Arizona and Take Charge America. 

Monolopy® is being used in Mr. Starchman's economics courses.  Throughout the game, participants may purchase or sell property and/or dwellings in order to become the wealthiest and win the game.  Students can track property transactions and life events to reflect on how real life events can unexpectedly change an individual's financial situation.

Upon completion of this lesson, students will be able to analyze opportunity, cost and trade offs to financial choices, track spending, complete financial statements, and experience the implications of scarcity.
