Tas ParveenHost: Tas is a Qualified Secondary Teacher specialising in Maths with a background of Accounting and Finance. She has worked in several schools over a period of 5 years - including as a numeracy co-ordinator, working with pupils aged 11-16 with gifted and talented, SEN and EAL pupils. Tas has also worked as a private Tutor with GCSE and KS3 pupils helping them to increase their grades as much as 3 steps over a space of 2 years.

In this class, students will look at how to use the formula for compound interest.

They will also learn to understand the difference between compound and simple interest by looking at an exam style question so they can apply what they have learned. By seeing an exam question explained, students can be sure knowledge of the topic has sunk in and they will then be able to apply these lessons to other problems in the future. 

As well as covering compound interest, this class will also act as a recap for any students who may have missed the topic of 'percentages' and benefit from this catch up.
