´╗┐Teacher Troy stands in front of a blackboard with prop magnetic coins on it.

Teacher Troy is in his thirties, bald and with a shadow of a beard. He wears a blue Homework Help T-shirt.

He says HI,
TVO KIDS.
THIS IS TEACHER
TROY,
AND WE'RE
GOING TO BE TALKING
ABOUT MONEY, AND
DECIMALS.
WHAT'S
REALLY IMPORTANT
TO UNDERSTAND IS
THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN
DOLLARS, AND CENTS.
SO IF YOU LOOK IN
YOUR ALLOWANCE
JAR, OR
YOU REACH IN TO
YOUR COUCH,
YOU MIGHT FIND SOME
SPARE CHANGE.
AND ONCE YOU
LOOK AT THAT CHANGE
THERE'S A CERTAIN
RELATIONSHIP
THAT HAPPENS ONCE
YOU GET TO A DOLLAR.
SO FOR EXAMPLE I
REACHED INTO
MY ALLOWANCE
JAR AND I FOUND
FOUR QUARTERS, TWO
DIMES AND A NICKEL.
WHEN WE
LOOK AT THIS,
WE KNOW THAT FOUR
QUARTERS...
[Music playing]
GIVES US
ONE DOLLAR
AND ZERO CENTS.
NOW I STILL HAVE
TWO DIMES AND
A NICKEL WHICH
GIVES US A TOTAL
OF 25
CENTS.
[Music playing]
SO THE BEAUTIFUL
THING WITH THE DECIMAL,
THE DECIMAL ALLOWS
US TO SEPARATE
THE DOLLARS
AND THE CENTS,
AND WE LOOK BACK
TO OUR
DOUBLE
DIGIT ADDITION,
WE ADD THEM UP,
'CAUSE NOW
WE KNOW WE HAVE
25 CENTS LEFT OVER.
WE PUT OUR DECIMAL
POINT THERE.
THEN WE
HAVE ONE DOLLAR.
SO WE KNOW THAT
FOUR QUARTERS,
TWO DIMES AND
ONE NICKEL LEAVES
US WITH 1 dollar 25 OR
ONE LOONIE
AND
ONE QUARTER.
I'M TEACHER TROY AND
I HOPE THAT HELPS.
