Make math worksheets for children. The Math Worksheet Wizard is a simple-to-use tool for teachers and parents.

Second Grade Money Worksheets

Practice using money from the US, Britain, or Europe with "real-life" problems. Your second-graders can put their numeracy skills to the test with a variety of worksheets that require totals and change to be worked out. As a major step up from First Grade, the money problems in these worksheets go beyond "cents" and "pence", dealing with dollar, pound and euro values as well.

Note: These worksheets use values up to five dollars, pounds or euros.

Count Your Pennies

Count Your Pennies

Create a chart to separate hundreds, tens and ones. When you click the "Make Worksheet" button, a chart will be generated with four columns; one for dollars (or equivalent), one for dimes (or equivalent), one for pennies or cents, and the other for the total amount. The top half of the chart requires your students to break down the total into 100s, 10s and 1s, while the bottom half needs your children to make the total from the 100s, 10s and 1s listed. The values range from $1 to $5.


Order the Prices

Order the Prices

Make a sheet of number lines and values up to 5 dollars, pounds or euros. Ask your children to either match the value to the right places on each number line, or actually write the prices on the number line in the correct order.


Coin Addition

Coin Addition

Make addition sheets with money. Six rows of coins for your chosen currency are randomly created and listed on the worksheet. Your children need to tally thevalues of the coins and write the totals beside each row. Unlike lower level versions of this worksheet, there is no limit on which coins are used here. The coins are randomly chosen from the coin charts at the top of this page, so might even get a golden dollar or a two pound coin!


Shopping Cards

Shopping Cards

Make a sheet of shopping cards. Create a page of 16 shopping cards, each containing an item of food and a price tag. All the prices are randomly generated and won't exceed 99 cents or pence. Cut up this worksheet and use the cards in shopping role-plays, or use the sheet to play a unique version of bingo!


Money Stories 1 - Calculate totals, rounded to 5 cents or pence.

I bought a strawberry and an apple. The strawberry cost 50¢ and the apple cost $1.50. How much did I spend?


Money Stories 2 - Yes/No questions rounded to 5 cents or pence.

Money Stories 2

Make a math money worksheet. This worksheet offers the very 'real-life' situation of having a limited amount of money and needing to figure out if you can afford the combined cost of two different items. An example of the questions on this worksheet is:

I have $1.50. I would like to buy some cookies for 95¢ and a banana for 25¢. Have I got enough money?


Money Stories 3 - Two-part questions, rounded to 10s.

Money Stories 3

Make a math money worksheet. This wizard creates two-part questions that ask your child to first add some values together, then subtract that amount from a total. Examples of the questions on this worksheet are:

Paul spent 10¢ on some hamburgers and 60¢ on some carrots. He paid $2. How much change did he get?

Ken wanted 3 apples. Each apple cost 40¢. He only had $1. How much more money did he need?


Money Stories 4 - Addition and subtraction under $1 (£ or €)

Money Stories 4

Make a math money worksheet. This math wizard creates random math problems to test your children's use of addition in 'real life' situations. All the questions generated result in values under $1. Examples of the questions on this worksheet are:

How much are three 25¢ carrots?

I buy a sandwich for 62¢. How much change do I get from $1?


Money Stories 5 - Subtracting a value less than $1 from $5 (£ or €)

Ken buys a hamburger for 95¢. What is his change from $5?


Money Stories 6 - Subtracting a number over $1 from $5 (£ or €)

Money Stories 6

Create a math money worksheet. Similar to the worksheet maker above, this wizard generates random questions that require subtracting a value from $5. This time, that value is greater than $1. For example:

Joanne buys some chocolate for $4.14. She gives the shopkeeper $5.00. How much change does she get?

Erin has $5.00 to spend. She buys a sandwich for $3.66 and a hamburger for 78¢. How much change does she get?


Money Stories 7 - Comparing prices up to $5 (£ or €)

Money Stories 7
