2 Unit Concept: These lessons are designed to teach teenage learners how to use both savings and checking accounts as money management tools. These lessons are designed to compliment your state standards and are based on recommended Standards from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics: Content Standards: Numbers and Operations: Students will be able to perform computations in different ways. Students should be able to explain their method, understand that many methods exist and see the usefulness of methods that are efficient, accurate and general. Data Analysis and Probability: Students will learn be able to formulate questions and collect, organize and display relevant data. Process Standards: Students will see mathematical connections in the rich interplay among mathematical topics, in contexts that relate mathematics to other subjects and in their own interests and experience. And from the National Council on Economic Education s National Standards: Standard 10: Role of Economic Institutions: Students will learn that institutions evolve in market economies to help individuals and groups accomplish their goals. Banks, labor unions, corporations, legal systems and not-for-profit organizations [credit unions] are examples of important institutions.

3 Lesson Objectives: The students will understand the importance of savings accounts as a money management tools and demonstrate the ability to use a savings register. Students will understand that a checking account is a money management tool and demonstrate the ability to use a checkbook register. Brain Warmers: Savings Accounts 1. What are you currently saving for? Is that a need or a want? 2. What are some good ways to save money? 3. Where can you keep your money? 4. How can you track money in a savings account? Checking Accounts 1. When is it a bad idea to pay for something in cash? 2. What other options are there? 3. Can you think of any dangers associated with paying for items by check? What about in receiving a check as payment? 4. How do people keep track of the funds in a checking account?

4 Main Points: Savings Accounts The purpose of savings is to set money aside for future needs or desires. Savings accounts are tools for long-term money management. Interest is paid on savings accounts, unlike most checking accounts. Interest is a powerful component in the accumulation of wealth. Banks and credit unions will allow children to open savings accounts as early as the fourth grade. It is your responsibility to keep track of the transactions (deposits and withdrawals) in your account. Checking Accounts Checking accounts are a money management tool designed for daily use. They allow you immediate access to your funds, without the need to carry large amounts of cash. Most checking accounts don t accrue interest. Learning to use checks and a check register properly is a key skill of responsible money management. If you don t update your checkbook register accurately and regularly, you won t know how much money you have available. This is what leads some people to accidentally write bad checks. You are responsible for any errors made in your checkbook register. ATM transactions must be recorded in your checkbook register. Accounts must be balanced and reconciled monthly against the statement from your bank or credit union. Lesson #1: Interest and Your Savings Lesson #2: Recording Checkbook Transactions

5 Student Handout 1 Name Lesson #1 Interest and Your Savings Interest is the money that a bank or credit union pays you for letting them borrow your money while it sits in the bank. The power of a savings account is that you receive interest while your money sits there. Simple interest is calculated once in a given time period. Compound interest is recalculated based on the principal (original amount) plus the interest. Complete the charts below based on the information given. Simple Interest Quarter Amount Interest Paid Total Amount in Account 1 \$200 3% (200x.03) \$200 3% (200x.03)+206=212 3 \$200 3% (200x.03)+212=218 4 \$200 3% To figure out simple interest: 1. Multiply your principal (the number in the amount column) by the percentage of interest. 200x.03=6 2. Add this amount in the total column. 3. Continue. Be certain to start each calculation with the original total. Simple Interest Quarter Amount Interest Paid 1 \$100 2% 2 2% 3 2% 4 2% Total Amount in Account

Add this amount in the total column = Continue. Be certain to start each calculation with the new total. (Start with 206!) Quarter Amount Interest Paid Total Amount in Account 1 \$100 2% ) Which method would you prefer be used to pay you interest on a checking account? Explain Why. 2) Do you think it would be better to have a higher interest account with less money in it? Or a lower interest account with more money?
