Lesson Previews

The following lessons were created as supplements for use with McDougal Littell's "Mathematics Concepts and Skills; Course 2" by Larson, Boswell, Kanold, and Stiff shown below. This text is one of the few on California's state list of approved textbooks for middle and high schools. Keep in mind that these previews are pictures of the actual PowerPoint slides and they show no animation. Please download this free PowerPoint lesson as a comparison: Lesson 1-8.
