# Problem Solving

## Standards and Anchors:

CC.2.2.7.B.3 Model and solve real-world and mathematical problems by using and connecting numerical, algebraic, and/or graphical representations.

## Essential Question:

How can I write an algebraic equation to solve a problem?

Use all of the skills you learned throughout the week to solve the problem below. Follow each step in the lesson and be sure to submit each requirement to receive full credit.

Grade: Total assignment is worth 15 pts.

## Step 1 : Understanding the Problem (2 pts)

Read the problem above (just look at the main problem, not the Extra). What important math information and relationships do your notice? (Hint: If Alexa is asking friends to sponsor her for \$0.80 per mile and she plans to walk 9.25 miles, how much will each friend donate toward her goal?)

## Step 2: Make a model (3 pts)

Draw a picture or representation of the relationships going on in the problem. If you are ready to write an equation your can do that too. You can also wait for the next step. When your drawing is ready, take a screen shot or photo of it and post it to this Padlet. Make sure you look at the ways in which your classmates have represented the problem. Then come back and finish the lesson when you are done.
