This set of teaching money, (\$35) contains 200 bills (10 of each of 21 denominations from 100 Quadrillion to one-thousandth), and is color-coordinated with our write-wipe decimal place value chart (\$50).

### HALF, 1/2, 50% of something

• Halves: \$ bill denominations representing 1/2 of \$1. to 1/2 a Quadrillion

## PLACE VALUE with MONEY VIDEO LESSONS

• These silent lessons allow the teacher to talk while showing the video & allow students to count aloud while using the video graphics. Students can use the videos to TEACH the concepts to others, which is the BEST way to OWN or remember the information long-term.

## GATHER 10 and TRADE THEM IN

### TRADING: YOU need TEN (10) of any of any bill, to trade for the next larger in value.

TRADE 10 PENNIES for 1 DIME.

TRADE 10 DIMES for 1 DOLLAR.

TRADE 10 TRILLION DOLLAR BILLS for 1 TEN-TRILLION DOLLAR BILL.

TRADE 10 TEN-TRILLION DOLLAR BILLS for 1 HUNDRED-TRILLION DOLLAR BILL.

## NOTE ABOUT REALISTIC TEACHING MONEY

Life-like bills are highly recommend because learning disabled students have great difficulty generalizing or applying practice to real-life situations. Learning the basic concepts using real coins and life-like bills, will assure that understanding is transferred to real problem solving.

Play money and plastic coins and counters are of limited value to dyscalculic students. Obviously, the life-like bills used here are solely intended to illustrate place value in the base-10 system.
