BIG IDEAS


  • So that I can count money to buy things I want or need. I will also know how much change I get back after a purchase

  • So that I can use the correct money symbols and the correct placement of the decimal point to write a check or receipt


UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • The money system used in the United States consists of coins and bills based on relationships involving ones, fives, and tens.  The dollar is the basic unit.
  • 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 into groups that are easier to count.
  • Simulate everyday opportunities to count and compare a collection of coins and one-dollar bills whose total value is $2.00 or less. 
  • Emphasis is placed on the verbal expression of the symbols for cents and dollars (e.g., $0.35 and 35¢ are both read as “thirty-five cents”; $2.00 is read as “two dollars”).
