Welcome to Math 3 Slide Show!
This collection of lessons is due primarily to the
efforts of Mike Mills of the Rowland Unified School
District. In an
effort to help the 3rd grade teachers in his own district,
he has written a complete set of
PowerPoint lessons that complement
Harcourt's Math: Level 3, California
Edition by Singer
and Maletsky. These
lessons can be viewed slide by slide under the Previews tab.
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 3rd
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
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 who has been actively teaching in
the classroom since 1991, these lessons could
serve as a valuable base on which to build.

lessons from a home computer through the "Previews Page" of
this web-site. Notes can also be easily
