Shopping for the correct change

Today's Learning Intention in Maths:
              We are learning to give and receive the correct change when shopping

  • Counting up to 
  • Skip counting by 5's
  • Mental addition
  • Starting with the cents and then counting up to the dollars
  • Subtracting from the larger number
  • I subtracted the price of the item from the note I was using

 
If you had a $10 note and wanted to buy these items what change would you receive?
$10 - $5.85 =
$10 - $4.30 =
$10 - $2.65 =
