Collecting and counting money!

Step 1:

**Collect all the coins in the house! (I am sure your family won't mind when you tell them it is so you can learn mathematics.)**Step 2: Sort them into groups (5c in one group, 10c in another, etc)

Step 3: Count how many in each group, then calculate the group value.

Example: You count your

**5c**coins, and find you have**15**of them.15 x 5c =

**75c**You can use this form:

Coin | How Many | Value |

Total Value: |

Step 4: Add up all the group totals so you know how much money you have!

Tell everyone what a good job you did ... ... and ask if you can keep the money! |

Tip: If you make stacks of coins

**exactly 10 high**it is easier to calculate the totals.
