### Key learning points

- There are 100p in £1.00 so £3.00 is equivalent to 300p
- There are 10 pennies in 10p so 4 ten pences are equivalent to 40 one pences.
- Use knowledge of equivalent values to convert between pounds and pence.
- £3.45 is equivalent to 300p + 45p which is equal to 345p

### Common misconception

Pupils incorrectly multiply and divide by 100 when converting, or multiply and divide by 10 instead.

Continue to emphasise the relationship between one pound and 100 pence and encourage pupils to spot patterns e.g. £2 = 200 p, £3 = 300 p
