Good, clean money-counting fun

Slide coins across a surface of your choice. Stack change below the line until you have the amount shown on the register display and check your answer. If your total isn’t correct, you can try the same problem again. If you count the change correctly but missed an opportunity to use, say, a dime instead of two nickels, the app will show you that alternative.

You count change throughout your life. Give your kids a head start with MakeChange for iPad.
