Making Change: Using Money to Teach Math [Video - 5:01] (2010)

Featuring Allan Banks, Instructor at the Eastern Shore / Musquodoboit Valley Literacy Network

This short video features Allan Banks, a literacy instructor in Nova Scotia, showing ways to use money to teach both math and life skills.

He uses a web-based game that tests a learner’s ability to calculate the correct change when a purchase is made. However, if a computer isn’t available, the same game can be played using real or play money.

This learning activity can be used in a classroom or during one-on-one tutoring sessions with adult learners.

One of a series prepared by Literacy Nova Scotia, the video emphasizes that making correct change is an important life skill.
