In case you missed it last month, we are re-running the article: This car is going to cost me how much money?
Teach students the cost-benefit analysis of how much your dream vehicle is going to cost as well as to run and finance it. Students can pick from an array of different options as well as tailor the prices to fit costs in your region. When you get to the end there will be a breakdown of the vehicle you just bought and give you prices of gas/insurance per month as well as your car payment. Explore the thousands of different vehicle combinations you can get with this FREE app available on Google Play.
