Independent and Dependent Variables Activity
This is an amazing race activity over identifying independent and dependent variables. There are 8 scenarios such as "Chloe charges $12 per hour for babysitting". The scenarios are posted around the room. The scenario is on the outside and the question and answer choices are located underneath the flap. The student is asked to identify either the independent or dependent variable in each situation. There are 4 answer choices. The student picks the one they think is correct and records the corresponding letter. The 8 letters will spell a common math word when unscrambled.
Finally, when finished with the activity, the student is asked to rewrite any two scenarios using the words "is a function of". Download the preview to see the answer document and an example of one of the questions. Directions and key included. 18 pages.
