Do your students need practice with decimal place value? Try using money to help them visualize ones, tenths and hundredths! In this simple game (based on the classic "memory" card game) students try to find a "match" between a set of coins and the numeric representation. By playing in a group, students will get immediate feedback from their peers who will evaluate whether the amounts are equal or not.

There are 10 sets of cards in this pack. Each set has 5 coin cards and 5 matching numerical equivalent. There are 5 separate concepts in all:
1. Set 1 and 2 contain zero tenths, only hundredths (with one "challenge:" 10 hundredths)
2. Set 3 and 4 contain zero tenths, hundredths and ones only (with one "challenge:" 10 hundredths)
3. Set 5 and 6 contain tenths only, zero hundredths (with one "challenge:" 10 tenths)
4. Set 7 and 8 contain tenths only (with one "challenge:" 10 tenths)
5. Set 9 and 10 contain ones, tenths, and hundredths (with one "challenge:" zero tenths)

Challenge cards are included in set 2 of each concept in order to facilitate discussions around regrouping.
