Counting Change Worksheets
How to Count Change with Coins  Money takes up a major chunk of mathematics. It uses both a note and coins. While counting the money in notes is pretty easy, counting them in coins is sometimes difficult and takes up a lot of time. If you have difficulty in counting the change in the form of coins, then letâ€™s find out how to do it the easy way. You can do it with your hands by separating the coins types and then adding them. Gather all the coins together that you have and separate them in piles of one type. For example, pennies in one pile, halfdollars in the second pile, and $1 in the third pile. Now work with one type of coin at a time, then jump to the next coin. If you have more than one pile of the same coins, add coins in each stack first then multiply the number of stacks with the number of the coin in each. Repeat the process for the other coins as well and then add up the final amount to know the total amount of money you have.
