Simple Interest

I created a 5 day activity on simple interest. Students will be given a career with a gross annual income.  There are six different careers: a firefighter, postal worker, farmer, construction worker, chef, and astronaut.  You can laminate the cards and use them year after year!  Students will calculate the monthly payment of six different cars and the mortgage of four different houses.  They will use their monthly net pay to determine which car and house they can afford.  Lastly, students will also take into account other monthly expenses such as cable, internet, food, entertainment, gas for the car, and electricity.
