Year 1 maths worksheet: Change from 10p

Thanks to for this money worksheet, suitable for year 1 children. It’s always a good idea to set up a little shop at home and take turns buying and selling items. There is an amazing amount of maths involved in this, from learning how to write numbers to counting on and back and finding two or three lots of a number. If a shop is not available why not try this page?


Year 3 Maths worksheet: Money problems 3

money-shopping-burgers-1The third of our money problems worksheets is a little harder than the first two. It involves adding pounds and pence. When working mentally it is usual to add the pounds first and then the pence, which, of course, is the opposite of the way we do a question on paper.

Some of these questions involve more than one stage and it might well be a good idea to jot down intermediate answers. For example, when working out the cost of 3 items jot down the answer to the cost of the first two before adding the third. This also makes it easier when checking that answers are correct.

Year 3 Maths worksheet: Money problems 2

money-shopping-clothes-1The second in our series of worksheets on money for year 3 children. This page looks at addition of whole pounds. Again, the questions should be answered mentally, perhaps with the help of jottings.

The last 3 questions are slightly more complex and involve a higher level of  problem solving skills. It is important that children become confident with dealing with money as most of their real life calculations will have to be done without the help of pencil and paper or calculator.

Subtraction of money

standard-money-subtraction-p1This is another in our series of worksheets covering the four rules. Children should be competent with the standard written method of subtraction before moving onto subtracting decimals. Money is an excellent way to show how decimals work and it is important to ensure that there are two numbers after the decimal point. Another key point, of course, is to make sure the columns are correctly in line and that a decimal point is included in the answer. Make sure that questions 9 to 15 are written out in the correct format: vertically rather than horizontally.

Year 3 Maths worksheet: Money problems

money-shopping-10p-1This is the first of a new series of maths worksheets for Year 3 on money and shopping problems. This page looks at addition of whole tens at the greengrocers, working with multiples of 10p.

These questions should be solved mentally, although children may want to make jottings to help them. Most only need one operation to work out although the later questions involve both addition and subtraction.

Year 1 maths worksheet: Money problems (1)

money-1Money is a great way to encourage children with their addition and subtraction and of course, it is the spending of it when we most use our mental arithmetic skills!

This worksheet is for Year 1 children who are confident with counting and adding small numbers. It uses three coins, the 1p, 5p and 10p. Encourage trying to add in order of size, starting with the largest coin and, if necessary, counting on from that.
