Independent and Dependent Variables Differentiated Mini Lessons and Homework (Levels 5 - 8)
Students use function equations to complete input output tables, write equations from ordered pairs, and represent given equations in tables and graphs.
These lessons are leveled to ensure students demonstrate learning in a variety of ways which better prepares them for standardized testing.
Each worksheet comes with a stated LO (learning objective) and guided lessons (simple step by step notes) on the left column. Students can easily reference these notes while working. The two additional columns of problems provide ample opportunities for guided and independent practice. Two DOL (demonstration of learning) problems at the end provide the teacher with an opportunity to assess learning and take grades as needed.
A second worksheet provides homework review that aligns directly to the lesson. Additional mixed review worksheets provide the essential review and reteach that is needed to ensure mastery.
note: I am continually additional lessons and expect to have additional levels of mini lessons available this year.
Using this instructional format has engaged my struggling learners and allowed them to demonstrate consistent growth.
Texas TEK 6.6B, 6.9A, 6.1B, 6.1E, 6.1F
Skills and Concepts;

Level 7: Represent given equations in tables and graphs
Level 8: Represent given two step equations in tables
These materials have proven to be an effective tool when modifying lessons for remedial students and providing mandated IEP modifications as it provides comprehensive and sequential remediation of skills, concepts, and problem solving applications.
Also available for purchase separately are:
* Independent and Dependent Variable Task Cards. With the problem on the front and the answer with explanations on the back of each card, students are able to practice their problem solving skills independently.
note: I have received great feedback from parents that felt these
cards provided them with an effective structured approach
to home study.
* Input Output Table Mini Lessons: Levels 1 - 4: Students analyze word problems to identify independent and dependent variables, write equations, and complete tables.
