### 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”).
