Topsy Turvy Twins

WALT: Solve level 4 algebra problems!

Today we solved an algebra problem to calculate how much money would be spent and earned by 2twins. Tom started with $20 and spent $2pd. Tia started with $0 and earned $2.50pd. 


I used a table and times tables to help me calculate the day Tia would overlap Tom with money. 


We make links to STATISTICS and chose a line graph to show our thinking. You can see clearly, that Tia had more money than Tom.


What I found challenging?When I was working with my buddy, the answer we came up with was " $115".. This was fine because, as the class came together, we combined every idea as one and came with the answer of $10 by Friday.

Here is evidence to show my line graph learning!
