This primer on money will change how you see addition and subtraction.
What can a handful of coins get you? Well, it depends on how many you've got. . . . and what they are.
In this fun introduction to American currency, a variety of past presidents introduce themselves and their denominations. You'll learn who's on each coin and bill, and what they're worth-- and how many of one it takes to add up to another. Dollars, cents, and decimals are explained in accessible, kid-friendly language, with tons of examples and try-it-yourself problems and activities.
The mathematical concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division become hands-on in this innovative math book from trusted duo David A. Adler and Edward Miller, whose award-winning collaborations have been helping students tackle complicated problems for years.
After reading Money Math, kids will be confident with their pocket change!

David A. Adler taught math for eight years. In that time he learned many things from his students -- including the fact that they thought fractions were hard. So he decided to prove that learning how to work with fractions is not only easy, but also fun! He lives with his family on Long Island. You can learn more about him at www. davidaadler.com.
