# Year 2 Money - Combination of Coins

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money.

It is useful to be able to recognise that the equal values of money can be made by different combinations of coins. Depending on the value, this can sometimes be done in one or two different ways and sometimes in many! Children in Year 2 need a strong grasp of the value of coins in order to be able to reach equal amounts with different combinations.
