Length of the Lesson: 450 minutes; an additional 250 minutes for optional activities Lesson Overview: Before allowing the students the opportunity to start the activity 16: access their prior knowledge with regards to joining a health club. Why would a person join one club vs. another? Is cost the only factor? Spending dollars vs. saving dollars? Ask the students if any of them belong to a health club. What do they like about the health club? Discuss why more and more companies, apartment complexes, hotels and colleges have good fitness centers. Why do these places include fitness centers? What is the benefit of including a fitness center in these places? There are several ways that a function can be written as a statement. Be sure to address a variety of possibilities. These include but are not limited to using terms such as; depends, determines, hinges on, establishes, decides, causes and effects. Important concepts are identifying the two quantities involved and determining the dependent Dependent and Independent 1 and independent relationships. Many times, parts of this statement can be interchanged. For example, if discussing gas in a car and the amount of money you have, either statement of a function is accurate but the dependency changes: The amount of money I have after I put gas in my car depends on how much gas I put in my car. How much gas I put in my car depends on how much money I have. Discuss with students that sometimes the situation above exists; however, the question statement will help decide the dependency. Don‟t let this become an issue that distracts students from the concept of independent and dependent quantities. In Activity 1, many of these statements could be turned around and the dependent statement could become the independent. Students may point out that the number of hours they work depends on how much money they need to make. The idea here is to associate independent and dependent quantities with specific statements and words such as depends, determines, and function. As the statements are written, the dependency is established. Allow and encourage students to discuss how changing the dependent or independent statement affects the other. Explain what moving toward/away from motion detector means. Activities 4-6 may need additional scaffolding regarding slope and y = mx + b dependent upon the needs of the students. How can you support a conclusion that you make? What evidence from graphs can be used to support/justify your conclusion? A good warm-up could be Payday or Tall Paul. When reading a graph, where are the x- and y-intercepts? What is the relationship between the intercepts and the context of any problem? Activities 13, 14 and 15 are graphing calculator-based units that are included in this overall lesson, but are viewed as optional. Use resources from your building.

They can be used as formative and/or summative assessments attached to this lesson or later when the students are being given an overall summative assessment. Dependent and Independent 2 Activity 1: Function I. Read each numbered statement. Determine the two variables (in words) in each situation and identify each as independent or dependent. a. Independent (Manipulated) variable – Not subject to control by others, self-governing. The independent variable is usually associated with the horizontal, or x axis. A common example of something not subject to the control of others, would be time, in the form of minutes, hours, days, etc. The independent variable is also referred to as the “input”. Another way of thinking of the independent variable is it is “free” and not dependent on some other action. For instance if I drop a ball off a building, the time required for the ball to hit the ground is “free” and is not in the least affected by the height of the building, me, the ball, or anything else. Thus in this case time is independent of the height of the ball (distance above the ground). b. Dependent (Responding) variable – Relying on or subject to something else for support. The dependent variable is usually associated with the vertical, or y axis. It‟s sometimes easier to figure out the dependent variable first, because we can see when something is relying on something else for support. Such as in our example above, time is not dependent on height, but the ball‟s distance above the ground is dependent on the time it was dropped. 1. How fast the grass grows depends on how much rain we get. a. Independent variable how much rain________________________________________________ b.

Independent variable -_____________________________________________________________ b. Dependent variable - ______________________________________________________________ 7. The amount of memory on a CD determines how many songs I can download to it. a. Independent variable -_____________________________________________________________ b. Dependent variable - ______________________________________________________________ II. The American Heritage Dictionary defines function as something closely related to another thing and dependent upon it for its existence, value, or significance. The words function and depends can be used interchangeably. Examples of Function – Write sentences that represent a function. Determine the independent and dependent parts. Include several different words such as depends, determines, and „is a function of‟ in your statements. 1. How much money I make depends on the number of hours I work a. I control the hours I work – independent variable b. The money depends on the hours – dependent variable 2. _______________________________________________________________________________ a.

Identify the cause and effect variables from the dependent functions you created in numbers 2-6. Cause Effect Dependent and Independent 5 Activity 2: Exploring Dependent and Independent 1. Mathematics is considered a universal language. People from all parts of the world read and interpret mathematical statements the same way. In order for this to happen, universally accepted mathematical terms, words, and symbols were established and defined. We call these “conventions”. Order of operations is one of these conventions. Worldwide, all people agree that problems will be simplified using the order of operations you have learned. Another convention is the agreement that the x-axis will represent the independent (manipulated) variable and the y-axis will represent the dependent (responding) variable. Applying this agreement, determine the independent and dependent quantities of each statement and label the axes on the graph. a. My grade in Algebra depends on how long I study. b. The longer I procrastinate, the less amount of work I accomplish. c. The number of CDs I buy depends on how much money I have. d. The cost of the taxi ride is a function of the number of miles I ride. Dependent and Independent 6 Activity 3: Dependent (Responding) Stories 1. Use the axes‟ labels to write a dependent (responding) statement. Example: Statement: How far I walk is dependent on how long I walk _______________________________________ a.
