UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • Simulate everyday opportunities to count and compare a collection of coins and one-dollar bills whose total value is $5.00 or less.
  • The value of a collection of coins and bills can be determined by counting on, beginning with the highest value, and/or by grouping the coins and bills.
  • A variety of skills can be used to determine the change after a purchase, including:
    • counting on, using coins and bills (e.g., starting with the amount to be paid (purchase price));
    • counting forward to the next dollar, and then counting forward by dollar bills to reach the amount from which to make change; and
    • mentally calculating the difference.
