A Simple Compound Interest Calculator

by TeachThought Staff

One of the foundations of financial literacy–or saving and investing, anyway–is understanding the benefits of compound interest.

The big picture here is what a child ‘needs to know.’ At TeachThought, we support the prioritizing of thought over content (while realizing that they’re not mutually exclusive).

We also value thinking habits, critical literacy, supporting/growing teachers, questions/inquiry, the role of place in learning (often through project-based learning)–and personalized learning, self-direction, thoughtful technology¬†integration, adaptive learning algorithms, mobile learning. citizenship, and dozens of other ideas that center children and their place and story and future over everything else.

And financial literacy is a big part of all that, which is why we’re sharing a simple and easy-to-use compound interest calculator from Wolfram Alpha, which you can find below.

Also, check out some of our financial literacy resources while you’re at.
