8th Grade Math (Pre-Algebra) Slope of a Line in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my 8th grade class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to find the slope of a line using two points, find the slope from a graphs and tables, solve linear world problems and identify parallel and perpendicular lines.
The presentation has 65 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 and Equations 8.EE
Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.
6. Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.
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.
