A penny saved

I’m starting a collection of time fillers: short activities you can pull out when you have a few extra minutes, when a student finishes an assignment early or when the whole class needs a break from the old routine.

Will you kindly share your favorite time fillers? Thank you!

You have a choice. You can either receive one million dollars on the spot (yes! tax free!) on the first day of next month and that’s it end of story OR you can start with a penny and double the amount every day for a month, not necessarily all in pennies. Which option do you choose?

It has been asked before and I still don’t know the answer: all US keyboards have the dollar sign ($), but there is no key to type the cent sign (¢). Why? (Mac users. PC users.)
