This module developed for grades 9-12 provides an introductory lesson on future
value concepts. As part of the EconEdLink site sponsored by the National
Council on Economic Education (NCEE), the tutorial is very nicely done. Both
teacher and student versions are available with a link in the teacher's version
to the NCEE Standard targeted. Students complete an online table to illustrate
the concept of compounding interest in order to determine how many years it
would take to double their investment.
