This "Using a Calculator to Add Up the Values of Coins and Notes (Australian Money)" program teaches the student to convert the value of a coin or Note to a number and then enter the value in a calculator and find a total value. This program can be used by kindergarten children or learning-disabled children of various ages.
If the default settings are not desired, the following choices are offered on the setting page:
Display the Value of the Coins or Notes is on
This is the default setting. The value of the coin or note (such as “10¢" under ten-cent coin) appears under the coin or note.
Display the Value of the Coins or Notes is off
The value of the coin or note (such as “10¢" under ten-cent coin) will not appear under the coin or note.
This is the default setting. The text “Start at the top left and enter each coin or bill's value" will appear at the bottom of the screen. If this is not checked the text will not appear.
This box is checked by default. When this is checked, adding the values correctly invites a congratulatory animation. This animation runs for ten seconds. Click anywhere on the screen or press space bar to stop the congratulatory animation.
Uncheck the box if the student doesn't need congratulatory animation
Coins or Bills Add up to The values of the coins or bills in the top boxes will always add up to the value of a particular coin or bill (for instance, they will add up to 25¢, $1, $100, etc.). Here the teacher/therapist can choose the coin or bill to which the values will add up.
This box is checked by default. When the box is checked all coins and bills will be selected.
