"A great way to incorporate technology with concepts of money is with the terrific Coin Math App by Recession Apps. ... We really like that the interface is easily understandable by Kindergartners, but yet still appeals to older students who need this practice (perfect for EL students too!) ... The advanced options gets you a longer time frame of use for this app, working for students Kindergarten through Middle School (and even longer if someone needs some practice working with money) ... Not only do we love this app, but our students do too!"
"At the Children's Museum of Houston, we find this app very helpful in teaching financial literacy in our pretend city, Kidtropolis, USA, where kids hold jobs, earn "paychecks", spend, save and share kid money." - Children's Museum of Houston (“America’s No. 1 Children’s Museum.” —Parents Magazine)

"What I especially liked about the app is that it works for different ages and levels. For example, the easiest gets you matching the coins to their value. It’s simple and fun...Bottom-line: I use this app to help my own kids learn about money, and to reinforce the curriculum in the classroom."
Rated #4 of Top 10 math apps! "This fun matching game involving money helps kids become familiar with U.S. coins and their values."
"We gave this application to several children ages 4-8. All of them liked this application best of the coin counting applications we looked at. It can be used either at home or at school for learning to identify and count coins, and learning to make change. It can also be used to learn or reinforce counting by 5's, 10's and 25's. As a teacher/parent, I appreciated that both sides of the coins were used within the application, and the coins were to scale. The kids quickly noted that they looked like real money."

“This is truly an app that puts math to use in the “real world” by asking players to make correct change for a customer with an easy-to-operate point and drag system.”
