The second of our worksheets on using the standard written method to add money. Remember to keep the decimal points in a straight column when writing these out. it is also important to write down any zeros that occur in the answer – don’t just leave that column blank. Encourage neat setting out of these questions as it eliminates the possibility of adding the wrong numbers in a column.
I always encourage children to write a decimal point in the answer before they start the calculation as, if it is missed out, the answer will be incorrect however well it has been added up.
