I think I will let kids do these without working out the algebraic representation for a few. Then put up one and NOT give a target number. I will ask, “How else could you represent this?” and see what they come up with. I will hope it builds to using a variable and constant. Maybe even get multiple representations that have a variable and yet are correct so we can decide which is more efficient (combing like terms).
Then move to what to do if we have a total.
