A complete unit with direct instruction to the student, ample practice problems and word problems. Common Core aligned. Great for independent practice/homework.
The unit Money, Grade 3 teaches counting coins, making change, and solving simple problems about money.
The first lesson, Using the Half-Dollar, reviews counting coins. In the lesson Dollars, the student writes dollar amounts using the “$” symbol and the decimal point.
The lesson Making Change explains two basic ways of making change: (1) counting up and (2) subtracting (finding the difference). This is all done with mental math. The following lesson, Mental Math and Money Problems, also uses mental math, this time in solving simple money problems.
The lesson Solving Money Problems introduces the concept of adding and subtracting amounts of money vertically in columns.
