Math Mammoth European Money is a worktext that covers money-related topics usually encountered during grades 1-3 (ages 6-9). The book contains both textbook explanations and exercises, and is designed to be very easy to teach from, requiring very little teacher preparation (you do need to find practice coins before the lessons).

The book starts with first-grade topics such as counting coins with cent-amounts and easy problems about change. For the most part, these lessons use "c" as a symbol for cents. I realize there is no official symbol for euro cents, but when young children are learning to count coins, it is much more natural to count them as cent-amounts, and not use the euro symbol, such as in €0,08, to mean 8 cents.

While these initial lessons use pictures for the coins, practising with real (or toy) coins is even better, and you should have those on hand to practise with.

From there, the lessons advance toward second-grade, and finally to third grade topics, such as practising with euro amounts and figuring out the total cost and change. Therefore, you can also let your child work the pages of this book in different time periods, and not go through it all at once, depending on your child's current level.

Making Change explains two basic ways of finding the change: counting up, and subtracting (finding the difference). This is all done with mental maths. The next lesson also practices money problems using mental maths.

In the last lesson, we solve money problems by adding and subtracting money amounts vertically (in columns).

The book also contains a list of money activities and games on the Internet.

When you purchase the digital version, you will get two versions of the book: one that uses a decimal comma and another that uses a decimal point. By and large, Europe uses a decimal comma, but the decimal point version could be useful for someone who lives in the States and would like for their child to learn euro coins, without confusing them with the comma. Both versions are formatted to A4 paper size.

The digital download version (PDF) of this book is enabled for annotation. This means that if you prefer, the student can fill it in on a computer (with Adobe Reader) or on a tablet (requires a PDF app with annotation tools).
