Money Pieces help students visualize and understand money values and relationships. Two versions of coins and bills are provided: virtual currency pieces that replicate the appearance and relative size of U.S. coins and the dollar bill, and area money pieces.
Area money pieces represent the values of coins and the dollar bill using an area model in which 1 square unit is equal to a penny. Nickels, dimes, quarters, and half dollars are represented by collections of squares equal to their value. In this way, the area pieces can be used to model and compute with fractions and decimals.
• Switch between currency and area money pieces.
• Illustrated shades can be used to pose problems with unknown quantities of money.
• Convert money to different bill or coin values. For example, two quarters can be exchanged for 1 half dollar, 10 nickels, 5 dimes, or 50 pennies.
• Rotate and duplicate selected items.
• Choose to show either side (heads or tails) of the currency or money pieces.
• Use the drawing tools to annotate work and show understanding.
• Write equations and expressions with the math text tool.

Cool teaching tool
This app is so useful in our homeschool. I love being able to show how pennies "change into" nickels or dimes etc. The grid feature is cool too. This app is a teaching tool that can be used with any curriculum, for many different ages. Free, and no ads!
One quick fix
This is a great app. I'm using it to teach decimals as they relate to money, so the grids are PERFECT!! The one problem is in grid form the manipulative is to big to fit large numbers on the screen. I need a way to make them smaller.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
