Solving Equations - Let’s Go Shopping—Part 1 & Part 2
Get some simple toys or plastic objects and create some post-it price tags for them.
For example, for the toy giraffe you could write the label as
(g) = $.50 and for the toy boat you could use (b) = $.30. At this point, they don’t have to have realistic prices. It’s more important to give students simple numbers to work with.
Make sure you use unique variables for all the items.
