# 33 Coin Practice Worksheets

Cooking is a wonderful way to practice many math skills. Lets them help measure out ingredients and discuss fractions with them. How many quarter cups are there in one cup? Make a pizza and cut into eight slices. How many slices are there in one-half of the pizza? Talk about cooking times and temperatures with kids. Let them use a thermometer to test cold or hot food items.

From a child's point of view, money comes from Mom and Dad's pockets. You need to take time to teach your children about the value of money. The lives of children who understand money and how to handle it, will be far easier than those of children who don't.

First, take two 10 pence coins and throw them a few times, asking the kids to record the outcome of the throws. There appear to be three possible outcomes to tossing two coins: two heads, two tails or a head and a tail. However, swap one of the coins for a 50 pence coin and repeat the exercise, again asking the kids to record the results. There are now four possible outcomes: two head, two tails, the 10p as a head and the 50p as a tail, or finally the 10p as a tail and the 50p as a head.

Once you have given them a basic introduction to money and how currency works, then you can start providing lessons about how you pay with them. Whenever you go to the store with your children is a great opportunity to do just this. You can also start teaching kids to save money at this point by showing them how you would rather buy something that is cheaper than buy the more expensive item which works about the same. You could also explain how you are not going to buy an item because you do not have any use for it, thereby saving money that way.

There are two approaches to working out the probability in this case. The first involves gridding out all twelve possible outcomes and counting how many of the twelve include a matching pair. The second approach uses a logical short cut which says that the colour of the sock we draw first is immaterial, so long as we can calculate the probability that the second sock we draw is of a matching colour. It's worth pointing out that many kids will conclude that the sock problem is identical to the situation where one is tossing two coins. However, there is an important difference between the two situations which means that the probability of throwing two heads is not the same as drawing both green socks.
