Algebra students are asked to construct multiple equations given rates and flat fees. Students must interpret the problem in order to identify parts of an equation. The task is scaffolded by presenting multiple scenarios separately then combining equations using subtraction. Students must critique student work of combining equations using subtraction by using knowledge of combining like terms and the distributive property. A graphic organizer is provided for students to create an argument using a claim.
