    I think it is better for you to understand the terminology and symbols/parameters used in this section first and then you must give a chance to learners to give their understanding. If one understands the term correctly, ask him/her to explain to the others. You may motivate and assist where necessary. Other things important are symbols/parameters used to represent a term or a phrase needs to be explained to the learners. This is my approach for the past 3 years and in all these years my learners were doing good in mid-year exams in this section and I make correction, where necessary and in trial excellent results

    Hi This is a very general question and I remembered that in another discussion a teacher said that what they always do is Google the problem. I googled ‘ South Africa Financial maths Grade 12’ . In the list were some videos explaining some of the more complicated ideas. Do you have a phone that can show video clips or some access to the internet. If so you could try these videos:

    If anyone has found other useful videos please could they post the links.

    Through the help of you collegues I have discovered that Financial maths is not a big deal, it only needs practice and understanding. Also the links given by Chris are very good and they give a deeper understanding of each and every lesson at FET.Thank you.
