- In sets of coins of mixed values, it is more efficient to count coins of the same value together.
- It is also helpful to count coins with the greatest value first.

### Common misconception

Children may count coins in the order they are already arranged, or begin with smaller value coins first, leading to inefficient counting methods.

Consider the most efficient ways to count, grouping coins of the same value together, starting with greatest value coins or adding groups of coins in ways that enable them to use the addition strategies with which they are already familiar.
