So that when I purchase items in a store, I know how much change I should receive
So that I can count the value of a group of coins (in my pocket or in my piggy bank)
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.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
