Overview

Loans, Investments and Annuities enables students to solve practical problems associated with taking out or refinancing a mortgage and making investments. We will help students understand the concepts and techniques in loans, investments and annuities and how to apply reasoning skills to solve related questions. Students will  develop proficiency when using a CAS calculator. Learning to select the relevant data to process, interpreting the results and communicating a response in the context of the question.
