Product Description
7th Grade Math Solving Equations by Multiplying and Dividing 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 solving equations by using multiplication or division, use algebra tile to models equations, and solve real-life problems using multiplication and division to find the average speed needed for a trip.

The presentation has 144 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
Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.
4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
a. Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?

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.
