This is a double-sided worksheet with 8 questions on finding the independent and dependent variables. Each question is a real-life application situation. Some situations involve equations and some do not.
The question on each situation is left off on purpose so that the student really has to think about reading through all the words and finding the two variables. Their answers are written in a box format that can be read backwards.
Since student really struggle with first just identifying the variables and then figuring out which one is the independent or dependent one, writing their answers in this format is really helpful. If your students really struggle with just figuring out what the two variables are, I recommend using my "Identifying Variables Practice" sheet before using this one. It gives specific tips on how to help students find the variables. Key included.
