Exploring Money with Lower Primary

Bev Dunbar

Introduction Exploring Money Money is one mathematical topic that is familiar to all students. You discuss money regularly as part of your class routines and news, calculating the total collected for a charity, a special excursion or lunch costs at the school canteen. Exploring Money is a companion to the other Number books in the Exploring Maths series. Here are over 30 action-packed ideas for developing skills in recognising, naming, matching and using coins and notes in fun, practical ways. And the activities range from simple to super-challenging to help you cater for different ability groups. Making your teaching life easier is a major aim of this series. The book is divided into sequenced units, each packed with enough photocopiable playing cards, activity cards and worksheets for small groups, or a whole class, to explore for at least a week at a time. You’ll find easy-to-follow instructions, with assessment help in the form of clearly stated outcomes linked to outcome indicators (see p.92). Each activity is designed to maximise the way in which your students construct their own understandings about money. The activities are open-ended and encourage each student to think and work mathematically, with an emphasis on mental recall as well as the practical manipulation of coins and notes. Look forward to exploring money with your students.
