Some Interest-ing Definitions
Interest- the money you earn from a bank or credit union. Simple Interest- the extra money that you earn that is paid out in cash. Interest Rate the extra money you earn expressed as a percentage. Compound Interest the extra money that you earn from your bank or credit union when you leave all the money in your account. Principal the money that you put in (or deposit) to your account.

Compound Interest Compound interest- is earning interest on interest. Water and Rocks Activity: Compound interest is earning interest on interest. This sand activity will illustrate earning interest on interest.- Get colored sand. The interest represents the colored sand. The plain sand is the principle. Pour in Regular Sand. Pour in a small amount of colored sand. This is the interest we earn in one month. For the second month we will add our plain sand to show we earn money on the principle + interest. Now add more colored sand- (more than previous). Then repeat. For 6 months. What would this look like if we had been illustrating simple interest and wit drawled the interest we earned every month.??- No colored sand and less full. Compound Interest Simple Interest

Another View of Simple and Compound Interest
\$1000 deposited and left alone for 30 years at 5% interest. The Blue line represents monthly compound interest, the pink line represents simple interest.

SIMPLE INTEREST Charlie is trying to save for 6 months to buy a new iPod that costs \$110. He is going to deposit \$10 every month into his credit union account, which will pay him 20% interest on what he deposits. He will withdraw the interest each month to pay for fun things that he likes to do with his friends—going to movies, renting video games, and eating pizza. \$1000( )^3=
