Independent and Dependent Variables Differentiated Mini Lessons and Homework Review (Levels 9 - 12)
Worksheets progress in difficulty from one level to the next. Level 9 - 12 lessons incorporates decimals. For whole number lessons see levels 1 - 8.
These differentiated mini lessons are unique because they contain worksheets designed to help teachers reach a high level of rigor while also providing alternative worksheets that provide differentiated instruction for struggling learners by breaking problem solving down into manageable chunks and gradually building in rigor.
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, 6.6C
Skills and Concepts: Each level incorporates decimals
Level 5: Write function equations continuing decimals and complete input output tables
Level 6: Read ordered pairs to write decimal equations and complete input output tables
Level 7: Represent given equations continuing decimals in tables and graphs
Level 8: Represent given two step equations involving decimals 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.
