There are four problem
- Find total value - This problem type
requires the user to total up the coins and write the total value.
- Find missing coin - This problem
type displays several coins, a single missing coin, and a total value. The user
is required to determine and write the value of the missing coin.
- Multiple choice answer - This problem
type displays several coins and four possible total values. The user is required
to circle the correct answer.
- Count the coins - This problem type
displays a total value and several coin types. The user is required to write the
number of coins for each type. At least two coins must
be selected when selecting this problem type. Also, when creating this type, several
options are automatically disabled since they do not pertain to this problem type.
Select one or more coins to include in the money worksheets.
The Count the coin
worksheets require at least two coins
be selected. [top]
- Easy - The easy worksheet has the
least amount of coins for each problem. Because there are fewer coins in each problem
that take up less space, these worksheets have two columns of money problems.
- Medium - The medium worksheet creates
problems with more coins than easy, but less than hard. Because there are fewer
coins in each problem that take up less space, these worksheets have two columns
of money problems.
- Hard - The hard worksheet has a large
number of coins in each problem and displays the problems in a single column.
- Expert - The expert worksheet has
the largest number of coins in each problem and displays the problems in a single
column. Because of the large number of coins, you may need to adjust your worksheet
to print in landscape mode; see the help on Jumbo size
for additional information.
Even though some worksheets may normally display problems
in several columns, if Jumbo size is enabled, only a single column is used since
the coins require additional display space. In addition, Count
problems always display in a single column. [top]
- Number problems 1 to ... - By selecting
this option, all money problems will be numbered from 1 to the highest number.
- Natural looking coins - This option
allows you to use natural (i.e. realistic) looking money in your problems. If this
option is not enabled, black and white line-art is used to display coins.
- Order coins from quarter to penny
- Enable this option to display the coins from the largest value (quarter) to the
smallest value (penny).
- Show both heads/tails - Enable this
option to randomly display either the head's or tail's side of a coin. By default,
only heads is displayed.
- Hide value labels - Many of the money
problems display a label under the coins to have the user fill in the coin's value.
You can enable this option to hide (i.e. remove) that coin value label. If the value
labels are hidden, the user only needs to answer a single part of each problem.
- Jumbo size - This option allows you
to increase the display size of the money worksheet. The number of problems and
display columns generated depends on the size. For example, Jumbo worksheets always
have one column. Depending on the size, you may need to adjust your worksheets to
print in landscape mode in order to avoid the right-hand portion of the problems
from being cut off by your printer.
The Generate! button allows you to generate your
money worksheet. Once you have entered the input data and selected any options,
you may select one of two different Generate! choices:
- Generate problems - This choice will
generate and display your money worksheets (without answers). Each worksheet will
be displayed in a new browser window. Once displayed, you can review and/or print
- Generate answers - This choice will
display your money worksheets (with answers). Each worksheet will be displayed in
a new browser window. Once displayed, you can review and/or print your answer worksheet.
For each set of options you select on the build
page, you will get the same problems each time you click the Generate! button. If
you are not satisfied with the problems generated for you, then you can click the
Re-Shuffle button. Once you click Re-Shuffle, you can re-click the Generate! button
to generate a new set of problems. There is no limit to the number of times you
can re-shuffle your problems. [top]
