Today in class we discussed the topic of interest and how it applies to borrowing and saving money. It is a relatively new concept for most of the students mathematically so feel free to discuss at home how interest plays a part in your everyday lives. The more the students understand the concept of interest and how it works, the better they will be at solving application problems in class. Anything from mortgages to car loans to bank balances to credit cards are all good conversations to have at home with your student.
I will send home a study guide at the end of this week and the next unit test will be early next week.
