Task

Pennies to heaven

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task can be made more hands-on by asking the students to determine about how many pennies are needed to make a stack one inch high. In addition, for part (b) students could be invited to research this question. Useful information which would need to be compiled to get total mintage figures can be found at Annual mintage of Lincoln pennies.
