This is a notes page for comparing a real-world arithmetic solution to an algebraic solution. Students practice drawing a picture, working backwards, and drawing a chart to solve a real-world problem. For each type of problem, they also create an algebraic solution. I have a separate listing for the powerpoint that goes along with these notes. The powerpoint contains all the answers to the problems and the fill in answers for the cloze activity on the notes. Included are whole class problems and individual work problems. I am new to TPT so please leave feedback.
