Overview - DOLLARS & CENTS SOFTWARE M/W CD
Three money programs on one cd that progresses from basics to being a store clerk.
Dollars & Cents Software is a great interactive program to teach money basics, spending money and money handling skills. Each level offers U.S. and Canadian currency options. Also includes scanning capabilities and better record keeping.Voice prompts and graphics cue users through each program segment.
The intro level First Money is the first step in independent money skills. It covers three segments:
• Money Names shows values and names for each coin and bill.
• Equal Value illustrates that different combinations of coins and bills can equal the same value.
• What’s it Worth asks students to add up varying groups of money.
In Spending Money, the second program, the student goes from store to store to buy things with options for automatic or instructor-selected shopping lists. Students browse through eight stores in a "money mall" and buy products like sweaters or soft drinks. They select appropriate bills and coins and receive change back. Separate exercises let students practice their money handling skills, with teacher options of how the student pays, if exact amount is required, and how much money the student has to spend.
Making Change is the most advanced money program where the user is a store clerk. Students will enter purchases and give back change. The program randomly generates hundreds of purchasing situations, each time showing an amount due for the purchase. Students then count money given for payment and enter the value on the keypad. The "cash register" then shows the change due. The "cash drawer" appears and the user gives back change, just like a store clerk.
