These notes review independent and dependent variables. There is also a cut and paste activity where students match the independent and dependent variables.
The following activity is designed as an introduction to the following math TEKS:
6.(6) Expressions, equations, and relationships. The student applies mathematical process standards to use multiple representations to describe algebraic relationships. The student is expected to: (A) identify independent and dependent quantities from tables and graphs; (B) write an equation that represents the relationship between independent and dependent quantities from a table; and (C) represent a given situation using verbal descriptions, tables, graphs, and equations in the form y = kx or y = x + b.
