Up to its third or fourth reprint. Still selling and still very, very relevant and probably always will be. The focus is on setting up a community in your classroom where the kids essentially sink or swim on how well the run their businesses (unless they work for you – the public service) while dealing with tax, rent, insurance and day-to-day bills. I will get around to do an updated version as some of the figures I suggest in the book and a few other aspects are now well and truly outdated but you (teachers) can update these where you see that is necessary. Earn & Learn really does represent the ultimate open-ended problem solving situation. It is a heap of work, it’s a heap of fun and it’s a goldmine for worthwhile, challenging and in context mathematics AND you get to be Prime Minister (because most kids don’t know the word dictator!).
