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.
