Steve Hall, Math Teacher
(The purpose of these pages is to help students who need review in some basic Algebra 1 topics. These pages may also be valuable for review for end-of-course exams, such as Gateway exams.)
(These presentations are now available on CD!)
The following Microsoft PowerPoint math presentations were prepared by Steve Hall, high school math teacher, for use in his high school math classes.
You are welcome to browse through these presentations and make recommendations for improvements! Each slide has an email click point near the bottom of the page.
Please be patient while each presentation loads. It might take a couple of minutes! If you are using a dial-up connection (56k), it may take 5 minutes or more!
You can watch the presentations full-screen by clicking on the small screen icon in the lower right corner of the first slide of each presentation. Once again, this may take a few minutes!
In order to avoid waiting, you may want to order the CD! (You may also order the CD using PayPal!)
Algebra Review CD Description:
The CD contains seventeen Powerpoint presentations on one CD. Includes "Fractions," "Exponents," "Solving Word Problems," "Integers," "Radicals," "Matrices," "Graphing Linear Equations," and more. Suitable for classroom presentations! This CD contains all the math Power Point presentations that are found on this web site, along with a PowerPoint Viewer. (These are full-featured PowerPoint presentations, enabling, for example, the user to start a presentation at any point--unlike the more limited web presentations. PLUS--NO MORE WAITING FOR PROGRAMS TO LOAD!!) Great for Algebra review!
(Order the CD for only $4.95 plus $1.95 S/H)
Students can work their way through each presentation simply by left-clicking each slide with the mouse. (Alternately, you can use the keyboard arrows to move back and forth through the program.) I would like to remind all students that it is important to stop and THINK about each step before moving on through the presentation. Students are also encouraged to email me to offer any questions or comments.
