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 solving simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change.
Once children become familiar with adding amounts of money together to find a total, the next natural step is to work out how much change to give by either subtracting the total from the amount paid, or counting up to find the difference. This begins with one-step problems, such as buying a toy for 18p and paying with a 20 pence piece, but will gradually move on to two-step problems such as buying 3 oranges costing 15p each and paying with 50p.
This quiz will help your child to understand money in a practical context and how much change should be given.
