Included are 12 stations perfect for practicing compound interest in the late middle school/early high school setting. All 12 stations ask for the total amount in the account after x amount of years.
There are different deposit amounts, APR, and a mixture of problems compounded annually, quarterly, and monthly. This will really help to drive home how to set up the problem before calculating.
There is an answer key provided that shows students how the problem should be set up and the dollar amount in the account.
How can you use this in your classroom?
*Put your students in 12 different groups and have them rotate through the stations. I typically set a timer and when it buzzes, they rotate to the next one.
*Print off two or three copies of the stations and scatter them around the room. This allows partners to wander at their own pace when solving.
*Display the twelve stations through a projector and have students work through them one at a time at their desks. Perfect for white boards and holding up the answer as they finish.
