Interactive Math Lesson - Counting Coins (USA)

In this interactive math activity geared toward third grade, students will practice counting coins. They will become familiar with the value of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters as they answer a variety of math questions that will require them to count the coins. When your students have completed this math practice game, they will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic counting coins.

A variety of math questions will keep your students engaged in this third-grade counting coins lesson. Students may be asked to write the total value of the coins in cents. They may be shown one quarter, three dimes, and two pennies. Students will be expected to fill in the blank with fifty-seven cents. Another question may ask, "What is the total value of 3 nickels and 3 pennies?" Students will type in the answer "18 cents." If students need a little extra help counting the coins, they can click on the "Hint" button. They will be shown a relevant pictorial clue that will help them count the coins. When students answer a question incorrectly, they will be shown a detailed explanation page. The explanation includes a custom graphic with a running total of the coins students were expected to count, so they can see how to count them correctly. As students move through the math lesson, they can learn from their mistakes.

Several other lesson features help children make the most of their counting coins practice. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the lesson. A score-tracker beneath that lets students know how many points they have earned in the lesson so far. In the upper-left corner of the practice screen, the speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click the button, and the question will be read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great resource for ESL/ELL students and students who excel at auditory learning!
