Use with CCSS 2.MD.8. The PDF contains six pages. Each needs to be copied onto paper or card stock. Two pages are mats and four pages need to be cut into the "coins." Each coin has a realistic picture of the head of the penny, nickel, dime or quarter and the tail of the penny, nickel, dime or quarter and is proportional to its value. In other words, the penny is 1/100 of a dollar mat, the nickel in 1/20, the dime is 1/10, and the quarter is 1/4. Given story problems involving money, the student can use the mat and the coins to determine the value even if the student does not know the values of the coins. One set of materials contains 2 "dollar mats," 8 quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickels and 80 pennies. Created by Robert van Deusen, lecturer in Elementary Math Methods.
