This fun PowerPoint was created for 7th and 8th graders to learn how to use proportions to solve Real World Problems. Many of the problems and graphics are fun for the kids. One of the first slides shows several short word problems. The students have to decide which problems could they use proportions to solve.
Most of the slides consist of a good Real World Problem. The slides are animated so that the answers and/or follow-up questions appear when you click. The animated answers are accompanied by cool sound effects.
