Two fonts - tally and calculator

Saturday, 23 February 2008 | 0 Comments

Two very handy fonts that will help make worksheets and other computer created resources look great.

Both from the excellent site

Calchux font

This is a truetype font whose characters are generic images of calculator buttons, included in the zip is a PDF reference file.  Helpful for any calculator work.  When showing students how to use the calculator, I tend to have them following along with me, so when they turn to do some practise, I’ll have the calculator steps repeated on the worksheet.  An alternative to this font is using images: SHARP have a page of button images (and a downloadable zip).

Tally font

A brilliant idea, this font has five characters for tally counting.  Of course, handy for creating worksheets, but also for writing exams – rather than having to draw in tally marks.
