MONEY - Interactive Toolkit (Australian Currency)

MONEY - Interactive Toolkit (Australian Currency)

Useful IWB tools for explaining concepts, and assessing understanding, in a money context. Coin Comparisons: Drag and drop coins onto the screen to quickly set up calculation scenarios. For example: Which group of coins has the greatest value? What is the difference between these two groups of coins? What is the total of all these coins? Make this amount (e.g. 85c) with as few coins as possible. Money Machine: An open-ended activity to facilitate a money investigation. Choose an amount to investigate and put the coin/token into the money machine to be exchanged into lower coins. The machine will produce all possible combinations, in a random order. Piggy Bank Tool: An interactive piggy bank for totalling and calculating difference. Choose a difficulty level for a series of problems to work through - or set problems in Teacher mode to explore counting and coin values. To model counting on and difference, click the peek button. Smash the bank to look at the coins used and print the report as a record. Please note: This pack includes Flash-based interactive resources which may not work on some devices.
