Know your dough! Working with coins is a great way to gain a variety of math skills, including addition, skip-counting, problem-solving and more. If you're a parent or teacher, you'll want to give kids actual coins to practice with—they make great manipulatives. And there are lots of real-world opportunities for making change.
Readeez Money Math contains three distinct, mutually reinforcing components: Video, Audio and E-book.
"The Value of a Dollar" presents ways of making change for a dollar using quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. It also provides a few alternate permutations (there are 293 in all, if you include half-dollar and dollar coins).
"Penny, You're The One" includes penny-equivalents for a nickel, dime, quarter and dollar. Also counsels youngsters to "save your pennies and your fortune has begun."
"Nickelish" includes skip-counting by fives to one hundred. And while frugality is important (see above), Isabel claims she's going to share her nickels with her friends.
"Dime and Dime Again" features skip-counting by tens to one hundred. The repeated line "ten pennies equal a dime" will help kids remember this indisputable fact.
"Quarterrific" establishes that quarters are worth 25 cents each and gives cent-equivalents for one, two, three and four quarters. Also advises listeners to "start with the quarters" when counting a mixed group of coins.
