Properties and Mental Computation in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. It was made for my Algebra 1 class, but can be used for lower grades. This lesson was one of a chapter that was used as a review for all previous grades. The lesson teaches how to identify and solve different properties (Communtative, Associative, Identity, Inverse, and Distributive of both addition and multiplication).
The presentation has 36 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:
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique that helps to eliminate confusion and guide 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. 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:
The Number System 7.NS.A
Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions.
1c. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers. (Identifying only)
