In previous lessons, students used addition to find the total value of a set of coins and identified 100 cents as a dollar.
In this lesson, students solve story problems in the context of money. In the first activity, students continue practicing finding the value of a collection of coins and use the coins and their total value to solve problems in the context of a class store. In the second activity, students add and subtract values in cents in the same context, but are not provided images of coins. The second activity also gives students an opportunity to solve two-step story problems where the first step is not explicitly stated.
