Independent and Dependent Variables

Examining Real World Scenarios

Lets work together to identify the Independent and Dependent Variables in the following statements:

1. The higher the temperature of water, the faster an egg will cook.
2. Grass will grow taller if it is watered and fertilized more.
3. The score on the final test depended on the amount of time the student studied.
4. Boyd makes five cups of pancake batter. How many pancakes can he make?
5. Oscar sells lemonade at his lemonade stand for several hours. How much money does he make?

Now that you are done, create your very own example including a fun illustration that matches your scenario. Have a friend find the independent and dependent variables.
