In this chapter, pupils solve money problems involving addition and subtraction.

Pupils add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using the symbols for pounds and pence in a practical context. Knowing that 100p is equal to £1, pupils start to convert between pounds and pence. In doing so, they make connections between the different denominations and their previous work on place value. Pounds and pence are still separated without the use of the decimal point (ie, as £2 and 30 pence rather than £2.30).

In addition to finding total costs or calculating change, pupils pose their own problems involving money. They also start to tackle problems in other topic areas that are set in context of money.

#### Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number Problems (KS1/2) - March 31st

There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 children have to using four rules to solve two problems.

At KS2 children have some pretty tricky number problems to solve.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

#### Reasoning - Problem Solving - Money Problems (KS1/2) - March 3rd

Today's problems are ones that involve money. There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 problem students have to recognise the value of coins and use addition and subtraction to work our whether the correct change has been given. The second problem involves children finding a quarter of an amount.

At KS2 children potentially need to use all four operations and the problems can be solved using bar modelling.

### Mathematics Mastery

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of adding and subtracting money.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Enabling pupils to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through independent work is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This activity explores the concept of adding and subtracting money

• Pupils should complete these tasks using concrete manipulatives as part of the CPA approach
• Pupils should be encouraged to explain their working in full sentences
• These tasks may be adapted with pupils working in pairs to encourage mathematical discussion
