A couple of days ago my Dad found me counting my pocket money. He asked me to start again, but instead of count up the total, I was to count how many of each *denomination*.

A **denomination** is: each type of coin I had.

I counted them up and below are my results. We then calculated the total for each denomination. And finally the grand total: at first, I didn’t know how we were going to do it. But when I was shown, it all made sense

Then we drew some graphs using the information above: we had to type in the amount of each denomination, and this is what I got.

### Bar Graph

The graph above shows …. the amount of each coin. You can see that I have 2$ the most, then any other coin.

The next graph highlights the total of each coin. Like there is 23 2$ coins. But the total is 46$.

### Pie Graph

The pie graph clear demonstrates that … the pie graph shows that the 2$ coins is just a tiny bit over half way.

From creating these graphs I have learnt…. instead of counting my money, I’ll just let the computer count it for me. There is a lot of 2$ coins around the house. I have learned what a denomination is. I also learned what a pie graph is, and that’s about it.
