THESE NOTES WERE PRESENTED AND WRITTEN ON PAGE 43 OF THE MATH NOTEBOOK.
To continue our discussion and to help everyone understand Independent (aka input) and Dependent (aka output) Variables I showed everyone this picture.
Students recognized that the wood chips must be the dependent variable because they depend on the tree limb in order to exist. Students also understood better when we understood independent variable are the same as the input and the dependent variable is the same as the output.

This is an example we worked together. Coached all the way from start to finish. I recommended that students write the important details above the problem as they would appear in their equation. This would show them the pieces that they needed to put their equation together.

Kiddos were given this grid full of inequalities and a sheet of graphs stapled together. These sheets will be turned in for a grade.
1.) Solve the inequalities.
2.) Grab the sheet of solutions from the stool. The solutions must be cut out and glued on top of the problem it matches.
3.) After all gluing is finished, the students must match the graph to the solution. On the graph pages students were asked to write the number of the solution next to the graph.

On this sheet students will practice substituting to see if the solution is correct. If it is not correct, they must check mark the "NO" box and then solve the equation to determine the correct solution to the equation.
