Mathematics plays a huge role in everyday transactions and systematic operations. The importance of money in our daily lives cannot be denied.
Money is medium of exchange that can be used to pay for goods & services and to measure the value of things.
Young Stafordians got an opportunity to get to know about paper money and metallic coins. In this activity, Students were briefed about information related to money like from where it is issued, whose photograph is printed on paper notes, who signs the notes etc. Then an activity was conducted during the online class. Students had to sell their most favourite things (toys, story books, cars, dolls) to their classmates. For this they used dummy notes and coins. Firstly they put a price tag on their things and then put it up for sale. By selling these products they got to know about basic calculations. This activity proved to be fruitful as the students enjoyed a lot while selling and buying the things. The students shared their experiences at the end. The understood the common mistakes which could occur while making payments. The activity made them a smart buyer.
