Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Quarter - Section 4: Playing the Game


By having the students write down the coins used and the amount, you can check for two things as you circulate and look at their work after class.  You can see if students are making all of the trades based on what they wrote on their paper.  If they wrote 11 cents as 2 nickels and 1 penny, you can see that they didn't trade the two nickels for a dime.  You can also check that their pile of coins matches the amount on their paper.
