The aim of this topic is to complete and to consolidate the pupils’ often sketchy and, in some cases, still shaky background knowledge of money through practical dealings with real money. The children should become more familiar with the appearance, the weight and the size of coins and bank notes and recognise that the total value is equal to the number of coins or notes multiplied by their denominations. Different coins can be added, subtracted and exchanged. The cashless transactions should also be picked out as central themes.

This impulse is a small instruction that you can implement on a one-to-one basis with your class. We are convinced that both you and your students will soon be inspired by this impulse and the task linked therewith and you will come up with new ideas of your own – many a surprise can be discovered when working with music in mathematics.
