Algebra 1 Solving Simple Equations in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my Algebra 1 class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to write and solve linear equations in one variable, and solve real-life problems using linear equations such as finding how much money you started with on a shopping spree.
The presentation has 130 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:
High School: Algebra » Creating Equations A.CED.1
Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.
1. Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
High School: Algebra » Reasoning with Equations & Inequalities A.REI.1, A.REI.3
Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning.
1. Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
Solve equations and inequalities in one variable.
3. Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.

work with Google Slides. 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.
