Looking for a fun, engaging activity that gets the kids moving and talking about math? In this resource, students practice calculating simple interest using percents and you can choose between a printed activity or digital (self-grading) activity. The printed activity works great in the classroom while the digital activity can be used for distance learning or absent students.

There are 12 problems. With the printed version, students can begin anywhere. A correct answer will lead them to the next problem to solve. The digital version is in Google Forms which will self grade the form.

Since this is in Google Forms, you can change the point value for the activity as well as change the settings.

Also Included:

❤️Answer Key

❤️Recording Sheet for Students

❤️Directions for both the Digital Version and Printed Version

❤️Google Sharing Directions

This is perfect for your class and a great review before a quiz or test.

Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15 to the 𝘵 power can be rewritten as ((1.15 to the 1/12 power) to the 12𝘵 power) is approximately equal to (1.012 to the 12𝘵 power) to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.
Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, 𝘢 + 0.05𝘢 = 1.05𝘢 means that “increase by 5%” is the same as “multiply by 1.05.”
