Careers (A Course of Study). Unit IX: Change Making.
Designed to improve the change making skills of the special needs student, this set of activities on coin identification, how to make change, the dollar bill, and figuring change is the final unit of a nine-unit secondary level careers course intended to provide handicapped students with the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in the world of work. A total of four basic coin identification activities involving the addition of various coins and breaking various coin values and combinations into cents constitutes the first chapter. In the second chapter on making change a total of seven activities require students to perform basic addition, subtraction, and coin converstion operations as they complete sets of simple problems involving small household items and groceries. Chapter 3, which deals with the dollar bill, provides an activity on the various coin combinations equaling one dollar and four sets of problems dealing with grocery purchases. The eight activities supplied in the final chapter provide additional practice on the topics covered in the first three chapters. A posttest concludes this unit. (The other eight course units are available separately--see note.) (MN)
