Two Modes

MoneyCalc Mode

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 the MoneyCalc allows students to toggle between a horizontal and a vertical display of problems. Students can set the MoneyCalc to display problems vertically to match the orientation of the problems in MoneyCalc Activities.
