Common Misconceptions – Money That the bigger the coin, the more it is worth (and the smaller the coin, the less it is worth). That the value of a group of coins is decided on based on the number of coins in the group. That both the £ and p symbol should be used, e.g. £1.34p is used, not £1.34 That, to pay for items, you need the exact amount of money. That pence isn’t recorded using 2 decimal digits, reflecting the place value system. For example, one pound and nine pence may be recorded as £1.9 not £1.09
Common Misconceptions – Measures – Linear Measure That you require a unit of measure, not just a numerical value when stating measurements. Inaccurate/unrealistic estimates are likely until pupils have had opportunity to gain enough experience of measuring heights/lengths. Confusion with the different units of measures ie kilometres, metres, centimetres. That there are 10 or 1000cm in a metre and 100m in a kilometre etc. That, when measuring an item, you start at the end of the ruler, not at 0.
