Robert Foote, Walt Disney Magnet School  
A lesson designed to teach students to estimate the number of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in plastic bags; build stacks of each type of coin; find the thickness of a penny, nickel, dime and quarter after measuring their stacks; measure to the nearest millimeter using a ruler; and determine how many coins of each type will fit in tubes of different lengths. From the Practical and Applied Math section of a collection of almost 200 single concept lessons by the Science and Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement.
