## Prices & ordering

Printed copy \$8.45 USD

Math Mammoth New Zealand Money is a worktext that covers money-related topics usually encountered during years 1-3. 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 have coins available for practise with the lessons).

The book starts with year-1 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 cent.

There is a lesson that deals with how to shop without one or five cent coins. Since store prices can end in uneven cent amounts, and the total cost is rounded to the nearest ten cents, we tried to give some examples to practice rounding prices and shopping.

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

From there, the lessons advance toward year-2 topics and finally to year-3 topics, such as practising with dollar amounts, and working out total amounts owed 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 working out the change: counting up, and subtracting (working out the difference). This is all done with mental maths (doing the maths in your head). The next lesson also practises money problems using mental maths.

In one 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.

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.
