Dollar Up

Dollar Up



Click the image or link above to play the Dollar Up interactive game. On the first screen, students choose to play either an easy or difficult game.

For the easy game, students should move the money into the box that is one dollar more than the amount given. For example, if the requested amount is $14.75, then students should move $15 into the box. By using this method, you will not be overcharged more than 99 cents when purchasing items.

Money is moved by clicking on the mouse and dragging it or using a touch screen device. Once the money has been moved, the check button should be pressed.

If the amount is correct, the student will be notified. If not, the student will continue until the correct amount has been placed in the box. The game continues until 10 amounts have been completed successfully. A score is given upon completion based on the student's answers during the game.
