Teach and practice finding simple interest with this pack of resources!
This resource includes a page of guided notes (that students can glue in their math notebooks or include in their math binders), a skills practice worksheet, and an application practice worksheet.
The fill-in-the-blank notes page includes some definitions, the simple interest formula, and examples of finding simple interest earned in an account as well as simple interest paid on a loan. There are also a few extra examples for students to solve on the notes page.
The skills practice page has students practice finding simple interest earned and paid, as well as finding the balance in an account and the total amount paid back on a loan. Two critical thinking questions are included as well, where students are given the interest and need to solve for one of the other variables in the simple interest formula.
The application practice page consists of 6 real-world word problems that require students to use the simple interest formula to solve.
Answer keys for all three pages are included.
