In this lesson, students are introduced to the nickel, which they use alongside the dime and penny. Then students consider various ways to represent common values. For example, they represent a value of 10 by using 1 ten (the dime) or 10 ones (pennies), as well as the well-known decomposition of 5 + 5 (2 nickels), and represent their compositions with number bonds.
