Each math lesson is an interactive powerpoint slideshow. You don't need to start from scratch or reinvent the wheel every day. Just start the slideshow and teach!
These lessons actually teach mathematical concepts and procedures to students.
The lessons also contain embedded questions and answers that you can use to assess your students' learning as the lesson progresses.
I have included a PDF version of the unit. This way, you can easily print the math unit. Use it as a teacher's guide along with the powerpoint unit. You can also use the printed PDF on a doc cam if your classroom doesn't have technology to project the presentation from your computer.
