Jamir's Penny Jar

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is to help students articulate their addition strategies as in 2.NBT.5 and would be most appropriately used once students have a solid understanding of coin values. It also provides a context where it makes sense to 'skip count by 5s and 10s' for the combinations that involve more than one nickel or dime. The context provides a link to 2.MD.8. This task would be best used in an instructional setting especially since the language is somewhat complex and the teacher might need to help students decode the task statement.
