This curriculum project was designed to support teachers to implement credit card interest literacy into the Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 curriculum and was created by a second career teacher from the financial field. Financial mistakes made early in life can have serious implications and could be very costly. Studies show that less than one-third of young adults understand the concept of compound interest. This curriculum project includes compound interest algebra topics connected to financial applications of credit card interest.
