### BIG IDEAS

• 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.

### ESSENTIALS
