"We need two sandwiches for each person at the picnic."
" I earn $5.50 per hour when I babysit for my neighbor."

Classwork: The class investigated rate tables today in the context of two pizza shops. The shops charged different prices for different amounts of pizza. We used the tables to determine which place was more cost effective to order from. We eventually began to set up equations with variables the model the pricing plans from each shop.
Announcements: Tomorrow's class will extend the idea of rate tables.
