**Why I love using PowerPoint lessons to teach math?**

I have created and used math PowerPoint presentations with my middle school students for the past 15 years, and I am excited to share them with you. I present each of my lessons on my interactive board and students follow along while taking notes in their notebooks. I use a Smart-board, but you can use any interactive board.

__- Use Teaching Time More Efficiently__

It takes less time to start lessons every day because I each lessons is saved on my computer. All I have to do is click on it and I can be at the same place I left off the day before. I do not have to wait for students to take out all their papers, write the lesson on the board, or deal with students who may be confused as to where I left off.

__- Accommodate Different Learning Styles__

Using these PowerPoint math lessons allow me to effectively teach in different styles to my students. There are students who are more verbally inclined, so they can

*listen*to me talk. Visual learning students can understand what I am

*doing*much easier. My PowerPoint lessons include more in-depth visuals.

**What is included in each lesson?**

Each lesson starts starts with a mini-lesson and guided practice questions. Every lesson concludes with a lesson quiz and exit ticket to assess student understanding. All of the PowerPoint presentations are 100% editable, therefore I can modify any slide as needed. I design all of my lessons to take 30-35 minutes.

__Mini-Lesson with Guided Practice__

The mini-lesson for each lesson includes essential vocabulary and key terms for that topic. Students are then guided through scaffolded instruction with guided practice questions for each lesson objective. All of the math problems are worked out step-by-step with detailed explanations.

__Lesson Quiz__

Every lesson ends with a lesson quiz that includes questions from each topic of this lesson. This is perfect for assessing your students understanding of this lesson. I have students complete these questions individually or with a partner.

__Exit Ticket__

I have included an exit ticket question at the end of each presentation. Students write the answer on a post-it and turn it in to me on their way out the door.
