It's never too early to think about options for financing college! In this ready-to-use mini project, students apply compound interest skills to calculate the long-term cost of loans for college. This student-tested and approved project includes problem solving and analysis skills for evaluating different college loan types (all from the real-world). This project can be completed using compound interest formula or using exponential equations and logarithms. Good for exponential growth!
