Making combinations of different amounts investigation


First things first, you will need to design a money bank to store your money! Here are some examples but you can do it any style you like. Use A4 paper if you can. Also watch my video to see how I get on!


Now please watch my video where we look at how to find all the coin combinations to make 10p

Coin combos

Task 1: Use real coins or draw different combinations to make 10p


Task 2: Make or draw all the different coin combinations to make 20p. Remember to try and work systematically
Task 3: Investigate coin combinations to make 50p. Here are some examples. Either use real coins or draw money.
