6th Grade Math Area of Triangles 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 area of triangles, and solve real-life problems using the area of triangles to find the area of a triangled-shaped Texas toast sandwich.
The presentation has 29 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
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.
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. You can change the problem number and the names. Using student’s or teacher’s names can be another hook. 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.
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:
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.
1. Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
