In this economics webinar, help students understand compound interest so they know when to borrow and when to invest in the real world.
Learn about the concept of the financial life cycle – how are financial needs and means vary at different stages of life, and how this shapes decision making – along with activities to introduce these ideas to students. This provides a fresh approach to teaching both compound interest and exponents, one that allows students to critically analyze decisions regarding borrowing and investment and find an authentic application of mathematics.
