Math Mammoth New Zealand Money


Math Mammoth New Zealand Money is a worktext that covers money-related topics usually encountered during years 1-3. The book contains both textbook explanations and exercises, and is designed to be very easy to teach from, requiring very little teacher preparation (you do need to have coins available for practise with the lessons).

The book starts with year-1 topics such as counting coins with cent-amounts and easy problems about change. For the most part, these lessons use "c" as a symbol for cent.

There is a lesson that deals with how to shop without one or five cent coins. Since store prices can end in uneven cent amounts, and the total cost is rounded to the nearest ten cents, we tried to give some examples to practice rounding prices and shopping.

While these initial lessons use pictures for the coins, practising with real coins is, even better, and you should have real money on hand to practise with.

From there, the lessons advance toward year-2 topics and finally to year-3 topics, such as practising with dollar amounts, and working out total amounts owed and change. Therefore, you can also let your child work the pages of this book in different time periods, and not go through it all at once, depending on your child's current level.

Making Change explains two basic ways of working out the change: counting up, and subtracting (working out the difference). This is all done with mental maths (doing the maths in your head). The next lesson also practises money problems using mental maths.

In one lesson, we solve money problems by adding and subtracting money amounts vertically (in columns).

The book also contains a list of money activities and games on the Internet.

Very happy with this. I have 3 children working at different levels and it is helpful to standardize their work. I also appreciate the suggested links embedded in the work books. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
