# MATH

• ### WELCOME TO MATH!

Today we will work with coins and bills.
To warm up, please count to 100 by fives, tens, twenty-fives, and fifties.
GREAT!

Now let's review some information regarding dollar-and-cent notation.

When using dollar-and-cent notation there are two places to the right of the decimal point, and those places indicate the number of cents. For example, \$.01 stands for 1 cent and \$.10 represents 10 cents.

The places to the left of the decimal point indicate the number of dollars, in this case \$1.00 is read 1 dollar.
\$1 and one dollar are also ways of writing 1 dollar.

Please note that the presentation on page 48 shows only the front side of the 1-dollar, 5-dollar, and 10-dollar bills. Each of those bills has a back side as well.

Please look at this amount: \$1.57
It is read one dollar and fifty-seven cents.
The decimal point is read as and, and with money amounts there are only two digits to the right of the decimal point.

Please take some time to read through the presentation on page 48.
