Real-World Algebra Activity. Use A variety on Items around the classroom. Set a variable and a price to represent each item. (You can even allow the students to determine the prices). Have the students shop for items or create a shopping list for them.  Students will need to write expressions that match their list, Then solve each expression to determine the final cost. Students practice writing algebraic expressions and multiplying and adding decimals. (Examples are provided on webpage)
