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.

Great Math App!
Money Math: Counting Coins is a very educational and practical app that will teach children about money. The way it is set up is wonderful. The use of coins and concepts of coins are broken down into nine parts. In the first part has you add money to a piggy bank showing you how coins are added together in a visual sense. For the other eight parts you are asked various questions to check for your level of understanding and comprehension of the area such as making change. It also has a settings part in which you can change how much credit a child is given for a correct answer.
I think the app Money Math: Counting Coins is a great way to teach children about money. I really like that you can select the level children can play by making them player one, two or three. I really liked that all the child's statistics are presented to you and also that they earn points while playing. I think this could be a wonderful tool for parents and educators with just a few tweaks & additional features.
Wonderful Coin Counting Practice
This is one of the most complete apps for leaning about coins that I have ever seen! There is such a variety of ways for students to get to know the value of the different coins, and the coins are beautifully illustrated! This app is a bargain for only ninety-nine cents. The scores for 4 students can easily be accessed, so you can see how your students are doing. There is a minimum of arcade type play which is great because the educational part of the app is stressed. I love this app!
Fun Counting Coins
It was a wonderful app for my 1st and 2nd grader and had multiple skill levels so we can increase the difficulty, if we want. It has several ways to add up and subtract coins and it includes a way to track statistically how they are doing. There were some fun facts about the 50 US states and each individual state's quarter. The app was fun too, my kids played with no issues while I made dinner and who can complain about that.
