Counting out the total value of a set of coins can be challenging for some students. A strategy to address this is a modified 100s chart with images of coins and decimal values.
Versions of handouts
There are 4 versions, listed in the order I used them with my students. I suggest you start with just pennies (less than 10) to acclimate them to the chart. Here is a video showing how to use chart.
- dimes and pennies
- nickels, pennies
- dimes, nickels and pennies
- quarters and pennies

A request was made for a UK version. Below is the first iteration and may subsequently be revised. There are two versions: 1p 10p and 1p 5p 10p, both with 1 pound at the bottom for 100.
There is also a Jamboard version to allow you to work on this online. You have to make a copy of the Jamboard (see bottom image). (UK version – beta)
Make a copy to use the Jamboards.
