While watching this module, i thought about the problem I proposed in the previous module about system of equations problem. The problem I had was comparing two students salaries. Tim earned $15 an hour and Kate earned $12 an hour after getting $100 bonus. The question was when do earn the same amount. However, I could change it to candy in a jar. Then students could break it candy and use it to create groups and solve the problem with the visual model. Then we can bring this question to a real life situation.
