Money Math: Counting Coins

Money Math: Counting Coins is a fantastically fun way to help your child learn how to work with coins. It also is a great tool for working on their addition, subtraction and story problem skills.
While helping General George defeat the crazy Benny Arnold, your child learns how to add and subtract coins. There are 9 different ways or games to work with coins including:
• Practice screen where you drop coins into a piggy bank and get info about the coin dropped
• Adding a pile of coins
• Paying with correct change
• Is a pile of coins more or less than a number given
• Do you have enough money to purchase an item
• Find the matching pile of coins out of the 3 given
• Purchase an item with the least amount of coins
• Figure out how much more money you need to purchase an item
• Making change
There is also information about coins (several of the new designed coins which can be confusing to young ones), facts about each US state including the quarter design, flag, state bird, flower and so much more.
One of the great things about the game is that it has 3 different levels of play. Your child can work between 1 cent to 99 cents, a dollar to 2 dollars or 2 dollars to 5 dollars. You can track how up to 4 children/students are doing with some cool statistics. You also do not have to complete all 9 different games to win. You can play all 9 or just 1 and win just the same.
The app follows several of the math Common Core State Standards and especially 2.MD.C.8.

Get Your Money's Worth and Buy This App
This app has 9 games in it that pretty much cover all the exercises to do with money.
This app if used will definitely help children gain strong money math skills. It is made for ages 6-8, which in this case is true. Only the most advanced kindergartners in my class, who had some previous work with money, could even do parts of this app. It is well thought out and thorough. This app has games for counting money out, matching quantities of coins to the written amount, making change and estimating quantities of money. This is a stellar app for teaching and reinforcing coin money concepts. App developers are required to pick an age range, and yet, I suspect that many children older than 8 could benefit from using this app to strengthen their money math skills. There is a section in the app that tells about coins. There is a section in the app that shares some information about each state. There is a parent section that keeps track of game stats for users. This app is excellent for helping children with money math skills.
