In this course, you will learn how to determine the maturity value of an investment using compound interest. You will also be able to determine the present value if you are provided with the future value. You will be provided with a base set of course notes which you can use while you are watching the videotaped lectures. The course will take about 3-4 days to complete but this may vary among different students. There are lots of quizzes built in throughout the course to test your understanding of the materials at different stages.
To fully appreciate the concepts of Compound Interest and how time and rates affect the value of money, you may wish to go over the Basics of Simple Interest (which is a free course) at https://www.udemy.com/principles-of-simple-interest/
Hi. I hold a 4 year Bachelor of Mathematics degree from the University of Waterloo and a B Ed (Honours) from the University of Western Ontario. While I have been trained as a high school mathematics educator, I have had the pleasure of teaching mathematics at the post secondary level for four community colleges in southern Ontario. When I am not teaching, I like to fool around with my camera, muck about in my garden, read a good book and sail around in my boat. Not necessarily in that order.
