Welcome to Algebra 2 Slide Show!

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 lessons themselves.  In an effort to help the Algebra 2 teachers in his own district, he has spent 2 years writing lessons to complement Holt's Algebra 2 by Burger, Chard, Hall, Kennedy, and Leinwand.   These lessons can be viewed slide by slide under the Previews tab.  There you will see the vast majority of lessons are completely original and 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.

Supply new teachers with a complete set of well designed lessons that can be shared directly with students.  Created and written by a public school algebra teacher with over 16 years experience, these lessons could serve as a valuable base on which to build.

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 involved parties have purchased Algebra 2 Slide Show: Teaching Made Easy As Pi.  However, your own creations can be easily sent to colleagues through e-mail.

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.
