Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Working with Expressions and Equations Part 1 - Section 3: Ben's Family Corn Maze


In 6th grade science class my students learn about responding and manipulated variables while studying the scientific method.  During this part of the lesson I asked students to explain these terms to me and the class.  We then made connections between responding variables and dependent variables as well as manipulated variables and independent variables.  This helped students to identify and explain which variables belonged to which category.
