Product Description
7th Grade Math Algebraic Expressions in a PowerPoint Presentation

This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my 7th grade class, Pre-Pre-Algebra, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to apply properties of operations to simplify algebraic expressions and solve real-life problems using addition in expressions such as the dimensions of a swimming pool.

The presentation has 36 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:
Expressions & Equations 7.EE
Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
1. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

2. Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that "increase by 5%" is the same as "multiply by 1.05."

Please note that these PowerPoints are NOT EDITABLE. They WILL NOT work with Google Slides or Adobe Connect. You will need the PowerPoint software.

If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, slight wording adjustment for language differences, or a slide reordering just ask.
