The Count the coins worksheets require at least two coins
Easy - The easy worksheet has the least amount of coins for each problem and is the easiest to complete.
Medium - The medium worksheet creates
problems with more coins than easy, but less than hard.
Hard - The hard worksheet has a large number of coins in each problem and is somewhat difficult to complete.
Wow - The Wow worksheet has
the largest number of coins in each problem and is the most difficult to complete.
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.
Name/date/score - By enabling this option, each fact sheet will automatically have a page header
which will include a space for name, date, and score. This header is not included on answer sheets.
Number problems 1... - By selecting this option, all conversion problems will be numbered from
1 to the highest number.
Natural 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 - Enable this option to display the coins from the largest value (half dollar) to the
smallest value (penny).
Show math symbols (+, =)
- Enable this option to include the plus (+) and equal (=) symbols between coins.
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.
