WORKSHEET AND LESSON PLAN INSTRUCTIONS

This worksheet involves counting and giving change.

Students play the part of the cashier who needs to give change.  The first column includes the price of the item purchased, and under it is the amount received.  It is the students' job to figure out how much change to give using the counting on technique.

The technique counting on involves counting up to learn how much change to give back.  Count up coins from the price till you get to the money received while writing the coin amount.

For example, if the Price is \$1.95 and the Receive amount is \$2.00, then the students would count up from \$1.95 to 2.00 to see how much change to return:

 \$1.96 \$1.97 \$1.98 \$1.99 \$2.00

Here, 5 pennies are counted by counting up from \$1.95 (the price) to \$2.00 (the amount received). The students must write the total incremental amount under the coins.  Then write the total amount returned in the line provided.  In this example, the amount returned would be 5 cents.

As an option, students may also write the coin value under each coin without "counting on".  Then, only write the sum of the coins on the last line.

This worksheet may be used in many different ways depending on the skill level of your students. For students just beginning to identify coins, configure the worksheet to use only one type of coin (such as all pennies).  Then slowly add additional types of coins.  More advanced students can increase the number of coins, and also count all types of coins.
