How I Use It
I have used this app for extra practice. The 'Show Values' section is good for two students. One student can create an amount of money and the other student can add it up. Then it lets you check your answer. I have tried to use it for my struggling students, but as mentioned above, the app doesn't offer much help when a student doesn't know the answer.
My Take
This is not one of my favorite apps, but for free it is worth a look. This is not a game app but offers lots of practice. You can select easy, medium and difficult and a mode of only coins, or bills and coins. The downfall for giving this app to students who are struggling is that is doesn't offer support or guidance when the students gets a question wrong. After two wrong attempts, it just gives the student the answer and moves on to the next question. The coins are in color but it only offers the 'heads' face.
