Unique Money Calculator and Traditional Calculator in One!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.
MoneyCalcMode: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 theMoneyCalcallows students to toggle between a horizontal and a vertical display of problems. Students can set theMoneyCalcto display problems vertically to match the orientation of the problems inMoneyCalc Activities.
