Tip for viewing an imbedded player. Try the following to reduce pixilation when enlarging the video. Click “View” on the top of the browser, then click “Zoom”, then increase the size. I normally increase to a size between 250% and 300%, then scroll to the player. The player is larger and there is no pixilation. To reverse, click “View” and reduce to 100%.

SDPB presents a new program that takes a funny look at the money business. Kids’ Quest Making Change Really Counts follows the trail of Rusty Nickel, a would-be smart guy who’s got some problems when it comes to money.

With the advent of cash registers that calculate everything automatically, the way to manually make change seems to be in danger of becoming a lost art. The program, for use in classrooms and by homeschoolers, teaches kids, and every age, how to count back change and develop money skills.
