After we learned about money, it’s easy and fun to extend that to algebra. My students know that dimes are worth $.10, nickels are worth $.05, and pennies $.01. (At least I hope so.) Anyway I put these problems on the board, just to see what would happen.
Anyway, they all got it! It was so fun. So for the next week, I started every math time with a series of these types of questions, they couldn’t get enough! Math is fun!
I do have a fun activity in my TPT store called Money Algebra if you want to check it out.
