This 18-slide PowerPoint presentation uses word problems to explore the role of multiples in solving them. It begins with defining a multiple before being introduced to problems involving common multiples. In the first problem you're looking for several common multiples over a period of time. The second problem is looking for the next time an events occur simultaneously (LCM). After summarization there is a problem students can work along with solution so they can check their work. The presentation can take anywhere from 20-30 minutes based on student participation and teacher stopping points. The content is based on 6th grade Common Core standard: CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.B.4.
