Dollars and Sense II:

Our Interest in Interest

Dollars and Sense II: Our Interest in Interest uses engaging computer simulations to teach managing personal finances to students in middle and high school. Learner-directed learning and systems thinking combine to make the concepts of saving, interest, and spending come alive.

Each of the 8 Lessons begins with an open-ended question or challenge involving a computer simulation to manage different and important aspects of personal finances. The higher the lesson number, the harder the challenge.

About the Author

Jeff Potash

John Heinbokel and Jeff Potash have been long-time collaborators in educational system dynamics modeling since their introduction to the field in the late 1980s while Professors of Natural Science (John, with a Ph.D. in oceanography from Scripps Institute in California) and American History and Religion (Jeff, with a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago) at Trinity College in Burlington, Vermont. Originally drawn together to work on K-16 projects, by Jim Waters as the Waters Center portion of the larger Waters Consortium (now Waters Foundation), Jeff and John collaborated on a number of interdisciplinary projects over the years, including courses (including the history of disease on human history, human populations, and food dynamics), modeling workshops, and software (including a 17 lesson STELLA tutorial called Modeling Systems Self-Taught). More recently, Potash and Heinbokel worked in Washington on a series of modeling projects involving a broad array of intelligence agencies together with Homeland Security.
