Product Description
6th Grade Math Absolute Value in a PowerPoint Presentation

This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my 6th grade class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to find the absolute value of numbers, use absolute value to compare number in real-life situations, and solve real-life problems using dividing integers to find fast skydivers fall.

This lesson has SKELETON NOTES, notes that have the problem only. This will allow for the students to follow the lesson easier. There are 6 slides per page. They are in a pdf form for easy printing. I also attached the Word document for you to EDIT. If you won’t be doing all of the problems you can shorten what you print off for the skeleton notes.

NEW: The lesson is in an editable format so you can tailor the lesson to your class. The problems and clipart can’t be edited due to the TOU and to maintain the copyright integrity of the product. If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, or slight wording adjustment for language differences just email me at PrestonPowerPoints@gmail.com. I am respond to email quickly.

The presentation has 28 slides with LOTS of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit Preston PowerPoints.

Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique, guided animation, that helps to eliminate confusion and guides the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem (Green is for the answer, red for wrong or canceled numbers, & blue, purple & sometimes orange for focusing the next step or separating things.) Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.

This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
The Number System 6.NS.7c, 6.NS.7d
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
7. Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
c. Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation. For example, for an account balance of -30 dollars, write |-30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.

d. Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order. For example, recognize that an account balance less than -30 dollars represents a debt greater than 30 dollars.
