In this series of films we examine many circumstances where it is crucial to understand what is happening over a substantial time period. Individuals sometimes have to save for some while in order to finance large expenditures. How quickly do savings grow if the money is saved? Businesses frequently take decisions on whether it is worth borrowing in order to refurbish or expand. Sometimes people are not incurring debt but trying to get out of it. How do people pay back to banks and building societies the large sums they have borrowed to buy a house? We see how the mathematics of finance can help give an insight into these questions. These video clips and animations can be viewed in isolation, or you can use our learning pathway and follow links to related material in our Question Bank.
