More About Play Money Resources

Among our range of products is the mathematics and money book by Dr Paul Swan and Linda Marshall. This resource covers ‘money milestones’ using different games and activities. The problem-solving money puzzles for years 4-6 book is aimed at slightly older students, covering more specifics about spending money and receiving change.

In the classroom, play notes and coins can be used to set up a pretend shop, encouraging kids to think creatively about selling a product, trading, and the real-life application of maths. These written resources can be used as a guide for students to turn to when setting up shop and working on equations.
