Students solve compound interest problems where interest is compounded annually, quarterly, monthly, daily and continuously in this activity. There are 4 continuously pennants at the end of the set (#27-#30) that can be omitted in case you do not teach this formula. Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that, "Hey, we know compound interest!"

Included in this download are 30 compound interest pennants, 5 formula reminder pennants (1 each for the 5 formulas), an optional student answer sheet and an answer key. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom dรฉcor.

Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.
Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret ๐˜—(1 + ๐˜ณ)โฟ as the product of ๐˜— and a factor not depending on ๐˜—.
Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.
Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15 to the ๐˜ต power can be rewritten as ((1.15 to the 1/12 power) to the 12๐˜ต power) is approximately equal to (1.012 to the 12๐˜ต power) to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.
