This week, the grade 9 math class continued their study of money, exploring the intricacies of compound interest. Students learned about converting between nominal and effective interest rates, calculating changing compounding periods, as well as instantaneous compounding. They will soon go on to study logarithms.
This week, the grade 9 English class presented their story timelines to get to know each other better.
