Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP)
Learning Area: Practical Research 2 Grade Level: 12 Quarter: 1st Q. Duration: 1 hr.
Learning Differentiates kinds of variables and Code: CS_RS12-Ia-c-3
Competencies: their uses
Key Concepts/ A variable is a simplified portion or attributes related to persons, objects,
Understanding to phenomena or events and places that vary in amount, nature, number, form
be developed or type.
Variables should be measurable, meaning they can be counted on or
subjected to a scale.
The two basic types of variables are the independent and the dependent
variables. The dependent variable is the presumed effect while the
independent variable is the presumed cause.

Questions:
1. What do you think is our lesson for today?
Our objective this morning is to find out what a variable is and the two
basic types of variables and their uses.
To find out, let us proceed to our next activity.
Picture Analysis Part 1 Group Activity
Each group will be assigned to particular images then will post their answers in
the manila paper. A group representative will report their answers after.
Questions for Processing:
1. What similarities have you noticed? 2.What are the differences? Name as
many as you can. 3. Identify the image presented. Is it an object, a
person, a place, a phenomenon (event)?

Analysis
20 minutes
What one word can you describe with your answers in no. 1 and 2 in
relation to your answer in no. 3.?
What are attributes?
What one word can you describe with your answers in no. 2?

Picture Analysis Part 2. Each group will be assigned to one picture and answer
the following questions below.
Questions for Processing:
What differences have you noticed?
What other variables can influence those differences?
With your answers, identify the presumed cause and also identify the
presumed effect.
Which do you think is the dependent variable?
Which is the independent variable?
Concept Mapping
With the aid of the graphic organizer the students will map out the concepts and
discuss the concept.

DEPENDENT INDEPENDENT VARIABLES
A variable is a construct, concept, or idea under study. It could be anything. A
person, a place, a thing, or a phenomenon. Variables are simplified portions or
attributes of the complex phenomena that you intend study. The word variable
comes from the root word vary, meaning, changing in amount, number, form,
nature, or type. Variables should be measurable, this means that they can be
counted or subjected to a scale.

The two basic types of variables are:


1. Independent variable the presumed cause, the one that affects/
influences, meaning it can cause changes in the dependent variable.
2. Dependent variable presumed effect
