Next week you have your major assignment due on Sunday. It is a very time consuming assignment, so I suggest looking ahead at the assignment. We have covered most of the calculations in our discussion questions or on past worksheets. Please look back through your work and the forum for assistance.

I wanted to give you the information early. Here are a few videos for the mission trip. Your assignment includes a PowerPoint and Excel calculations. When you submit your assignment, I need the Excel document with your work and then the PowerPoint.

Major assignment 3 Try calculating the end balance for this donation. Then save your work for your major assignment 3 in week 6.(week 6 assignment)

Hello Class,

In week 6 you will be asked to calculate the projected savings account for a company that is going to donate $100 per month for 5 years. Here is a similar problem.

  1. A corporate entity has pledged to make monthly contributions of $50. This money is to be invested in a savings account. Using information from an internet source, determine the current interest rate on savings accounts and use the information to figure out how much will be in the account at the end of 5 years.

A(t) = (PMT*((1+r/N)^(N*t)-1))/(r/n)

Here PMT = the monthly contributions, r = annual interest rate as a decimal, N = number of times compounded annually (12 times – once per month), t = time of the loan in years, A(t) = value of account after t years.

Population growth projection practice for major assignment 3

Go to The World Factbook on the CIA website at https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/xx.html to find the current population and growth rate for a country of your choice. Use the population growth model below to predict the population of the country 1 year from now, 10 years from now, 100 years from now, and 1000 years from now. Are all of these predictions appropriate? Why?

Use the model = P0*(1 + r)^t where

P0 = current population

r = the population growth rate

t = time in years from now

P(t) = population t years from now


For your mission trip you need to submit a PowerPoint and an Excel document. Here are the directions for submitting two documents to the drop box.

The formula for annual compound interest is A = P*(1 + r/n) ^ (n*t). Please use Excel. Save work for mission project.

A = P*(1 + r/n) ^ (n*t)

Where:

A = the future value of the investment/loan, including interest
P = the principal investment amount (the initial deposit or loan amount)
r = the annual interest rate (decimal)
n = the number of times that interest is compounded per year
t = the number of years the money is invested or borrowed for

Your mission trip will require you to calculate the account balance of a savings account from a sponsorship. You will invest a certain percent of your budget. The investment calculation you show should be the same process you are discussing in this discussion question. Complete your discussion question in Excel so you can copy and paste the work to your mission trip Excel document.
