I attached the file with the recipe and problems I have prepared as an example. In addition, you can also download the file with the project evaluation.

Deadline is next Friday, May 3rd.

Simple interest


Hi kids,

I am sure you have heard about bank interest, but never have been told what is that exactly. I would say that INTEREST is how much is paid for the use of money (expressed as a percent or an amount). For further information, click on here (FOCUS ON SIMPLE INTEREST ONLY).

Have you ever wondered how a real bank works? See that video if you are interested:


If you want to practice doing exercises, have a look here.

This is the main vocabulary you should know for that unit:

LOAN, CREDIT: préstamo
PRINCIPAL: Capital
RATE OF INTEREST: Tipo de interés
BORROW: Tomar/pedir dinero prestado
LEND: Prestar dinero

Take care.
