This activity can be tailored to either demonstrate a given value of money up to $1.00 using a variety of coin combinations ( M.13.2.5) or to demonstrate a given value of money up to $1.00 using the fewest coins possible (M.12.2.6). Neither is covered to mastery in Saxon.
This is an awesome resource for showing how addition and subtraction work on a number line. Things to stress might include that moving from left to right shows addition and the opposite for subtraction. Most importantly, subtraction can be seen as the distance between the two numbers no matter the type of problem.
