The check out counter is where we commonly think about math in
the grocery store. It's where the total is added up, the money is
exchanged, and the change is returned.

What you'll need

All the items you intend to buy

What to do

1. Have your child estimate the total.

2. Ask, if I have 10 one dollar bills, how many will I have to
hand over at the check-out? What if I have a 20 dollar bill ? a 10 dollar
bill ? How much change should I receive? What coins will I get?

3. Count the change with your child to make sure the change is

if you have 10 items, the estimate would be about 2.50
