Crazy 8s: Funny Money

During our recent Crazy 8's Math Club at New Hampton Community School, we investigated coins. We found several different ways to make the same amount using various combinations of coins. We sequenced coins by their dates. We even compared the values of some coins with their weights! Finally, we all "bought" sparkly pencils and tiny little playing cards by figuring out the correct combinations of number of coins and amount.
