  • Description: The terms "dependent variable" and "independent variable" are used in similar but subtly different ways in mathematics and statistics as part of the standard terminology in those subjects. They are used to distinguish between two types of quantities being considered, separating them into those available at the start of a process and those being created by it, where the latter (dependent variables) are dependent on the former (independent variables).[citation needed] This sign video was contributed by users of the ASL-STEM Forum: http://aslstem.cs.washington.edu/
