SACE Stage 1 Essential Mathematics – Investing

6.1 simple Interest
6.2 Compound Interest
6.3 Investing for Interest

Using current and relevant examples, students investigate interest, term deposits, and credit costs. Students collect and analyse materials from various financial institutions outlining their financial products to explore the concepts and uses of simple and compound interest. They examine the effects of changing interest rates, terms, and investment balances on interest earned and make comparisons. Emphasis is placed on using technology, particularly spreadsheets and graphical packages, to enhance students’ opportunities to investigate interest generated on investments.
