variation and problem solving

direct viration In direct variation, as one number increases, so does the other. This is also called direct proportion: they're the same thing. y varies directly as x, or y is directly proportional to x, if there ia a non-zero constant k such that - y=kx
inverse variation In inverse variation, it's exactly the opposite: as one number increases, the other decreases. This is also called inverse proportion. y varies inversely as x, or y is inversely proportional to k - y=k/x
joint variation In joint variation the ratio of a variable y to the product of two or more variables is constant, then y varies as, or is jointly proportional to the other variable - y=kxz
constant of variation the number k is called the constant of variation or the constant of proportionality
divide and conquer The best way to approach word problems is to “divide and conquer”. Break the problem down into smaller bits and solve each bit at a time.
understanding the problem what are they asking? Look for clues in the problem to determine which form of variation
translate/interpret translate the word problem into equation(s) with variables
solve find the solution(s) to the word problems.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
