Instructions for Use

Change Maker provides students with practice counting money and estimating differences.

To use Change Maker, choose a difficulty level, and then click the Canadian flag to choose Canadian currency. Figure out how much money you would get back when you pay a given amount for an item. Then under each appropriate bill or coin, enter the number of bills or coins that make up the amount that you would get back.

If you get the answer right, the amount of change is added to your piggy bank. If you get the answer wrong, the correct amount of change is subtracted from your piggy bank. The more money you get in your piggy bank, the harder the questions become.
