This 25 slide no prep power point explains and identifies the difference between "drill" and "practice" when learning mathematics by presenting specific examples found in research. It also makes use of animation and sound to keep the participant engaged.
In the original power point, the first slides (2-13) are designed for the actual presentation. The important key words are added to the presentation as you click on the slides. The last set of slides (15-23) is designed for note-taking. Blank lines are provided where the key words should go. If you desire, print those slides out for the participants so that they can fill in the main points during the presentation. This is a useful and worthwhile approach when the slides are printed three slides per page. Drill vs. Practice can be used in a teacher workshop, in-service, seminar or in a college classroom setting. I have used it in my Elementary Math Methods Class as well as with elementary, middle school and high school math teachers. It would also be an informative power point for parents.
This power point correlates with my blog posting of June 21, 2016 entitled: Drill or Practice – They Aren’t the Same. You may read the article at: http://gofigurewithscipi.blogspot.com/
