About the Book

This primer on money will change how you see addition and subtraction.

What can a handful of coins get you? Well, it depends on how many you've got. . . . and what they are.

In this fun introduction to American currency, a variety of past presidents introduce themselves and their denominations. You'll learn who's on each coin and bill, and what they're worth-- and how many of one it takes to add up to another. Dollars, cents, and decimals are explained in accessible, kid-friendly language, with tons of examples and try-it-yourself problems and activities.

The mathematical concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division become hands-on in this innovative math book from trusted duo David A. Adler and Edward Miller, whose award-winning collaborations have been helping students tackle complicated problems for years.

After reading Money Math, kids will be confident with their pocket change!
