Simple Interest Math Lib
Math lib activities are a class favorite! At each of 10 stations, students will practice solving problems with the simple interest formula. This includes finding the interest earned, total amount earned, interest rate, principle, and number of years. There are more challenging problems included that will require students to read carefully, analyze more than one situation, and complete more than one step in order to solve the problem.
The answers they get will generate a funny story about their teacher. This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the "star" of the story.
ALL slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.
