Banking Your Money

Did you know that money can grow?

Well, it's true. In this activity, you'll learn about financial interest—which is what makes money grow—and how to calculate it. You’ll learn about ‘principal’ and ‘interest,’ and use real-life scenarios to demonstrate how interest is calculated using the equations I = P(1 + rt) and A = P(1 + r/n)nt.
