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

The book starts with first-grade topics such as counting pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. While the lessons use pictures for the coins, practicing with real coins is, of course, even better and you should have real money on hand to practice with.

From there, the lessons advance towards second-grade, and finally to third grade topics. 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.

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

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

Also available in these currencies:
European Money
British Money
Australian Money
New Zealand Money
South African Money

The PDF version of this book can be filled in on a computer, phone, or tablet, using the annotation tools found in many PDF apps. See more.

Mammoth Math - A Review: this concerns the Blue series books Addition 1 and US Money

Math Mammoth Blue Series — review by Adventures with Jude blog, focusing on the book Math Mammoth Money.

I just wanted to say thank you. Your products are amazing. I have a very bright 13-year old who also has ASD, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, and executive function deficit. She has always really really struggled in math, and is at about a 5th grade level on a good day. He self-esteem has taken huge hits.

Because it is an important life skill, this summer we have really tried to focus on telling time and counting/understanding money. Your books are the first method that has ever worked for her. The breakdown, explanations, and practice have been just what she needed to finally be able to master these topics. Thank you for creating them and for keeping them so accessible and affordable!

Last week I pulled my daughter out of school as the program that the school thought she could handle was much too hard. She has Mosaic Down Syndrome and so she is very hard to place. ...

I did the first page of the money problems with her. How you explained when to use 1 quarter, 2 quarters etc was so EYE-OPENING for her! She had never had it explained that way and she was so excited!!! Math is her weakness and her body expressed so much joy as she got each one right!!!! I had real money that she picked up and worked with! I can't wait to do a similar page with her. Right now we are really working on her understanding how to handle money as that is such a life skill.

... I did the math again with her today and she squealed with joy... something she hasn't done in a long time when it comes to math.

Take care & God bless,
Darlene Fast
