This video is the first in the Financial Mathematics series for the Year 11 General Maths course at VCE. Financial maths is an awesome subject and couldn't be more "real world" when we all have to deal with money. This introductory video takes a look at percentages and their applications. I look at Markups, Discounts, Percentage increase and decrease, shares, GST and so much more. There are lots of worked examples all explained in a way you will understand.
This is the second video in the Financial Maths series for the Year 11 General Maths course. Nothing simple about this lesson! Well ... I make it simple for you to understand what simple interest is. Firstly, I explain what interest is (both the good stuff and the bad stuff!) and then I look at how we calculate interest using the simple interest formula. There are lots of worked examples all explained in my unique style!
This is the third video in the series looking at Financial mathematics for the Year 11 General Maths (VCE) course. Having looked at how to find the interest for simple interest questions we now look at how to transpose the formula to make other letters the subject of the equation. This allows us to find the principal, time and rate of interest. There are lots of worked examples and easy to understand theory which will make this whole section seem really easy! I promise.
Having already looked at Simple Interest in a previous video (and what a video it was!), I now look at Compound Interest ... which seems to be a much fair way to gain money (well, if you're investing!). Compound interest basically describes when you get interest on the interest each year and so you get a little bit more each time. This video is part of the Financial maths section of the General Maths course (VCE) and looks at how to find the Compound Interest on principal investments and loans. There are a number of worked examples and a detailed explanation of how the formula works. All explained in my unique and easy to understand style!
