              Calculating a Simple Interest in Financial Mathematics

              Students learn about calculating a simple interest in financial mathematics. Learning progresses from calculating a simple interest to finding the principal amount, duration, and interest rate when the simple interest is known.At the start of the lesson students recap calculating equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, decimals and percentages as this is required for the remainder of the lesson. In the plenary students are challenged to compare the different interest rates and duration of two competing banks.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a simple interest for 1 year.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a simple interest paid over time.
              • Some students should be able to work out the rate of simple interest.

              With schools around the United Kingdom closed to most students it is important every child has access to engaging maths lessons through distance learning.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
