This is a fun, interactive way to get students started with independent and dependent variables!
Directions for the front:
Roll a number cube to fill in the independent variable (x) values.
Then, use the given rule to complete the dependent variable (y) columns.
If you roll a number that you already have, just roll again.
Directions for the back:
Roll a number cube (or cubes) to complete each rule.
Then, use the rule to complete each dependent variable (y) column.
If students finish early, they can write rules, then have their classmates complete the extra table, using their number cubes.
