Reflection: Standards Alignment Tables and Equations.....They're related! - Section 2: Vocabulary


I realized that after teaching this lesson, I didn't have any connections to real-world formulas as stated in the common core standards.

6.EE.C9  Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and write the equation d = 65t to represent the relationship between distance and time.

I created a practice exercise for them to look at different formulas, used in both science and math,  to determine the independent and dependent variables.
