Suggested Car Loan Money Lesson Plan to use with this Worksheet

Use this worksheet to help students identify some of the factors when looking at a car loan.

Purchasing a car may seem out of reach because cars are expensive items. One way to help individuals afford a car is through financing, and taking a car loan. This allows you to pay for a car by making smaller payments over a period of time, rather than in one single payment.

When financing there are several factors to understand. This includes the current car price or cash price, per month charges, down payment, and number of months the car will be financed.

Financing is not free, since you will need to pay a financing charge, or interest on the loan for the car.

Vocabulary to understand: Down Payment, Cash Price, Monthly Payment, Finance Charges.

WORKSHEET Instructions

The top section of this worksheet has several "advertisements" for cars available for sale. Information about the cars includes the price, and financing information (per month charge, down payment, and number of months necessary to pay the loan). The student is to answer the random word problem questions related to the cars for sale. You may choose a standard worksheet or customize the worksheet to your teaching needs.

Two different worksheet formats are available, single line format or box format.
