Compound Interest and Simple Interest
The below QQI BINGO © gives your class a selection of answers to fill in their bingo grids. Once they have filled their grids, you reveal one question at a time, and students cross off the answers if they have them. The first to get a line or a full house calls "BINGO" and wins.
Choose which types of percentages you would like to deal with (NonCalculator percentages are 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%, 25%, 50%, 75%).
Decide whether you want your values to increase, decrease or have a mixture of both.
Pick which type of interest you would like to apply (Simple, Compound or a Random selection) and what the maximum term of the investment should be.
Finally, choose the currency suitable for your location.
After the students have answered the question, you can reveal the answer.

Ideas for Teachers
This is a classic bingo activity, where students choose the answers to fill in their grid (either 3 by 3 or 4 by 4). Then questions are shown one at a time and if a student has the answer in their grid they cross it off. The winner is the first to cross off all their answers and call BINGO. Students love this game, and can be used to start or end a lesson.
