Click on the "Enter" button to open this program "Making Change".
This program teaches the student about changing (converting) larger denominations of currency into smaller ones, such as breaking a dollar bill into four quarters or ten dimes or any other collections of coins that add up to the dollar.
The screen has a top box showing the coin or bill for which change is needed. To the right of the top box is a counter giving the value of the currency in the top box.
Under the top box are more boxes in the middle of the screen with spaces for the coins or bills that the student is using to make change for the money in the top box. To the right of the middle boxes is a counter giving the value of the change in the middle boxes.
At the bottom is another set of boxes with a coin or bill in each box. The student clicks on these coins or bills to make change for the coin or bill in the top box.
Change Made The student clicks this button when he/she thinks the correct change has been placed in the boxes in the middle.
