Exploration

  1. Pay day loans are short term loans that you take out against future paychecks: The company advances you money against a future paycheck. Either visit a pay day loan company, or look one up online. Be forewarned that many companies do not make their fees obvious, so you might need to do some digging or look at several companies.
    1. Explain the general method by which the loan works.
    2. We will assume that we need to borrow $500 and that we will pay back the loan in 14 days. Determine the total amount that you would need to pay back and the effective loan rate. The effective loan rate is the percentage of the original loan amount that you pay back. It is not the same as the APR (annual rate) that is probably published.
    3. If you cannot pay back the loan after 14 days, you will need to get an extension for another 14 days. Determine the fees for an extension, determine the total amount you will be paying for the now 28 day loan, and compute the effective loan rate.
  1. Suppose that 10 years ago you bought a home for $110,000, paying 10% as a down payment, and financing the rest at 9% interest for 30 years.
    1. Let's consider your existing mortgage:
      1. How much money did you pay as your down payment?
      2. How much money was your mortgage (loan) for?
      3. What is your current monthly payment?
      4. How much total interest will you pay over the life of the loan?
    1. This year, you check your loan balance. Only part of your payments have been going to pay down the loan; the rest has been going towards interest. You see that you still have $88,536 left to pay on your loan. Your house is now valued at $150,000.

How much of the loan have you paid off? (i.e., how much have you reduced the loan balance by? Keep in mind that interest is charged each month - it's not part of the loan balance.)

  1. How much money have you paid to the loan company so far?
  2. How much interest have you paid so far?
  3. How much equity do you have in your home (equity is value minus remaining debt)
    1. Since interest rates have dropped, you consider refinancing your mortgage at a lower 6% rate.
      1. If you took out a new 30 year mortgage at 6% for your remaining loan balance, what would your new monthly payments be?
      2. How much interest will you pay over the life of the new loan?
    1. Notice that if you refinance, you are going to be making payments on your home for another 30 years. In addition to the 10 years you've already been paying, that's 40 years total.
      1. How much will you save each month because of the lower monthly payment?
      2. How much total interest will you be paying (you need to consider the amount from 2c and 3b)
      3. Does it make sense to refinance? (there isn't a correct answer to this question. Just give your opinion and your reason)

Logic-Math Exercises for Children

The Logic-Math books are designed to develop critical-thinking skills in children through exercises involving math concepts. Some of these concepts are customarily introduced to this age group others are typically reserved for older children. However, their introduction in these books is done in a fun and age-appropriate manner. These concepts include number signs, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percent, graphs, geometry, volume, and more, as well as number concepts that are involved in such topics as time and money.

The exercises involve organizing information, sequencing, pattern decoding, understanding relationships, inferring, solving analogies, and deducing, all presented in a format designed to appeal to young children. The first two books in the series are for students in grades K-2. Many of the lessons are pictorial, with simple instructions that can be read to pre-literate children. The third book takes the series to a more advanced level and is for children in grades 3-4. All of the books include exercises in a range of challenge levels that will enable children to experience both success and the struggle that makes success more satisfying. Children of all ability levels will enjoy the challenges in these books and will soon be applying their critical-thinking skills to other areas of learning and life.

How to help at home

You don’t need to be an expert to support your child with maths or help them develop a good sense of number! Here are three simple but effective learning ideas that you can try with your child at home.

1. Dice with decimals

Make ‘×’ ‘÷’ and ‘10’, ‘100’, ‘1000’ cards to place face down in two piles. Roll a dice four times to create a number (e.g. 4258), then insert a decimal point somewhere (e.g. 42.58). Take a card from each pile and do the calculation (e.g. 42.58 ÷ 100 = 0.4258).

2. Play Battleship games

Play Battleships by drawing ships on coordinate grids. Try to sink each other’s ships by guessing their positions using coordinates, such as (1,2). Remember that the first number in the coordinate bracket is on the horizontal x-axis. The second number is on the vertical y-axis.

3. Hit the sales

Sales in shops, catalogues or online are great for working with percentages. For example, in a 20% off sale, if the full price (that is 100%) of an item is £10, how much is the item discounted by (£2) and what will the sale price be (£8)?
