Can't figure out how the Swiss Card works on trips such as that up the Jungfraujoch where it is shown on the map as a 50% trip. Does this mean if you have a Swiss Card and your trip on the Jungfraujoch railway is 100 CHF (hypothetical price for easy math) that you pay 50% (i.e. 50 CHF) or do you pay 75 CHF (50% off of half of the price)?

Clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Nate! The Swiss Card allows a 50% discount on regular, full fares. So in your example, you'd pay CHF 50. Regular fares can be found through the timetable (pick a connection, choose 'Fare/Buy' and enter further details) or at the Jungfrau railways website. Further information on the Swiss Card is available at the Swiss Card page.
