Math Quiz: March 23rd – FOCUS: Money work

Hello Grade 4,

It is MONEY time! You have your quiz on March 23rd and we will be covering all areas of money (addition, subtractions multiplication, making change, estimating costs). For this week’s homework, there is a lot of worksheets – YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE EVERY QUESTION. I have given an example of everything that will be on the quiz so you can decide which area you need to focus on. We have highlighted a minimum on each section during homework and organisation time – please check your folder!

As I have mentioned in the past, worksheets do not work for everyone. Here is some example of activities depending on your learning style:

Kinesthetic learners:

Visual learners:

Written or reading learners: 

Here are the worksheets
