PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

6.EE.9 Equations – Identifying Independent and Dependent Variables.

This lesson is discussion based. This is a tough concept for students to grasp. It’s directly linked to literacy comprehension skills. Students should reason through a situation by “living” it and from there determine the unknown quantities and justify their choice for independent and dependent variable.

Depending on your class’ sense of humor you can use the following example:

The more water (Name) drinks, the more they have to pee.

Reason: So if (Name) drinks two glasses of water he’ll have to pee a few times, but if he drinks a gallon of water, he’ll be peeing so much more! So we can see, the more water he drinks, the more he pees. In other words, the number of times (Name) pees depends on how much water he drinks.

I used this example in one of my classes, and the kids loved it. They understood the concept like ::snaps fingers:: They said it’s because it’s a situation they could relate to. And I also chose a name of a class member who is known for frequent task avoiding bathroom breaks (but has a great sense of humor ;) [No students were offended in the aforementioned example.]

Includes:
Discussion prompt guide.
6 situation cards (cut in half)
Exit ticket
Answer Key

I gave one set of cards to each group of students. Monitor for discussion.

Enjoy!
