Welcome to Algebra
This collection of lessons is due primarily to
the efforts of Mike Mills of the Rowland Unified
School District. Mike who
has believed in the power of this technology early
on, realized that many teachers don't
have the time or inclination to write PowerPoint
themselves. In an effort to help the Algebra
2 teachers in his own district, he has
lessons to complement
McDougal Littell's Algebra 2 by Larson, Boswell, Kanold, and Stiff.
These lessons can be viewed slide by slide under
the Previews tab. There you will see the vast
written by Mike.
Deliver lessons to students that meet
rigorous state standards in a time efficient manner.
These lessons are specifically designed to
fill in gaps in understanding and go beyond the
book. Many concepts that are tough to learn or are
inadequately explained in the book are elaborated on
in these PowerPoint lessons. Most lessons consist
of about 5 to 8 slides and are easily presented in a
30 to 50 minute period.
Significantly raise your student's
year-end test scores.
Engage your students interest like never
before. Most of the presentations have some
animated effects that add to the effectiveness of
the lesson. You can personalize the presentations
by adding your own backgrounds, sounds, and clipart
to make them even more powerful.
Integrate technology into your
pre-algebra classroom on a daily basis. PowerPoint
is versatile and provides you with the ability to
hyperlink to other applications and web-sites while
still in PowerPoint. At the touch of a button you
can switch from delivering your presentation to
using graphing calculator software and back again.
Free yourself from the overhead or
whiteboard. Using a remote mouse and laser
pointer, you will be able to circulate around the
room as you deliver the lesson. You can monitor
note taking, see where students are getting hung up,
and control unwanted behavior.
Add, delete, or change any part of any
lesson you wish. Unlike videos, software,
or other similar media, PowerPoint lessons can be
modified. All teachers are encouraged to make
changes to these lessons and make them their own.
Share your own lessons with colleagues.
These lessons are copyrighted and any
duplication or transfer of these lessons or
modification of these lessons is illegal unless all

Slide Show: Teaching Made Easy As Pi. However,
your own creations can be easily sent to colleagues
Absent students can access these
PowerPoint lessons from a home computer through the
"Previews Page" of this web-site or by visiting
www.Algebra2Notes.com. Notes can also be
easily printed for those without home computers.
You will be pleasantly surprised how many students
return from an absence and immediately request a
printout of the PowerPoint lesson they missed.
