Overview - MONEY CALC 3 PACK
Unique Money Calculator and Traditional Calculator in One! PCI’s Janie Haugen-McLane envisioned a traditional calculator that could also function as a money-math calculator by showing the dollar signs and the ending zeros on money computations. This calculator lets students see how money-math problems are worked.
MoneyCalc Mode: Money amounts are always displayed with the dollar sign and ending zeros. Thus, five dollars is displayed on the screen as “$5.00,” unlike a traditional calculator that just displays “5.” Money-math computations are visually concrete as each number entered is displayed in this same, easy-to-understand way (e.g., “$2.00 + $1.50 = $3.50”).
Calc Mode: Allows the device to be used as a traditional calculator for working math problems that do not involve money.
New Display Option: A switch on the side of the MoneyCalc allows students to toggle between a horizontal and a vertical display of problems. Students can set the MoneyCalc to display problems vertically to match the orientation of the problems in MoneyCalc Activities.
