Money
Calc

The Money Calc, created by PCI's Janie Haugen, is a hybrid of traditional and
money-math calculators. The easy-to-use Money Calc allows students to 'see' how
money math problems are worked. The calculator takes the mystery out of money
math and helps students master basic math, coin
counting, and 'real-life' money-handling skills.

The Money Calc has two modes: The Money
Calc and Calc Mode. In the Money Calc mode, the LCD screen shows values as
decimals with the dollar sign, dollars, and cents. For example, when $2.50 is
added to $2.50 the screen displays $5.00, unlike a traditional calculator,
which converts the amount to 5. The Money Calc can also be used to teach
subtraction and calculate change. In the Calc Mode, the Money Calc functions as
a traditional calculator for working math problems that do not involve money.
