# Interactive presentation

A PowerPoint presentation that includes student activities or questions

A PPT to supplement work on this topic in the context of hairdressing.

Also includes a quick starter on punctuation.

A movable PowerPoint that can be used as a starter, revision, recap, group activity, etc. Covering ALL FOUR purposes: INFORMATIVE, INSTRUCTIVE, PERSUASIVE and DESCRIPTIVE. Can be used in conjunction with the ‘comparison table’ which contains the same information in the simple and quick reference table (see my other resources).

PPT with title slide and 3 slides and a set of suggested questions to go with it.

A further worksheet showing the number of seats for the parties for the last and new parliament with tasks for E3 to L2 learners.

**Editor’s note**

A great resource for prompting general discussion about elections, statistics, etc.

This is a PowerPoint slide show on ratios (with answers) to use with Army soldiers. The subject matter is Adventurous Training and Mountain Leader Trainers (MLTs). Most of the presentation deals with the instructor/novice ratio. The final slide is about ammunition.

[img_assist|nid=5487|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=100|height=78]This is an activity to calculate best deals etc based on a Telegraph article

The article was written on September 20th.

I am Going to use it with a L1 Functional Skills Maths group.

Entry Level 3 Functional Skills English interactive PowerPoint presentation on scanning, skimming, reading for detail and using images in text.

Includes a paired work activity on screen 9 for which you’ll need a range of texts including plenty of dictionaries, depending on you class size.

This PowerPoint was used to introduce Pythagoras’ Theorem to Functional Skills college students whose main course work is to do with the Building Trades (Carpenters, Electricians). The last 4 slides therefore deal with using Pythagoras’ theorem to calculate the length of roof rafters.

**Editor’s note**

I realise that using Pythagoras’ theorem is beyond the scope of L2 Functional Maths Exams but this is a very useful PPT due to the vocational questions. Would also be useful for GCSE Maths.

Using a video from YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6eTr4ldDYg) about the miniature earth I have created this PowerPoint on percentages. It will work well with John Thompson’s easy percentage worker-outer and Margaret Adams’ Calculating percentages as quantities (links below under “See also”).

The classic example of a tally is keeping track of how many cars of each colour go past in the street, but that is rather awkward to do in practice.

Use this presentation to save having to leave the comfort of the classroom! It is a PowerPoint slideshow of cars of various colours, to be projected onto the board. Tell learners to keep a tally of how many cars of each colour appear. Where a car has more than one colour, they should put it under the predominant colour.

E1 learners could focus on simply counting (for instance) all the red cars.

An animated PowerPoint presentation (86 slides) that covers several topics: Fractions & Percentages;Units of Measure; Charts & Graphs; Ratio, Scale & Proportion; Perimeter, Area & Volume; Averages and Range. There are also some links for a planned inclusion of other topics at a later date (Time & Money, Tables and Formulae).

This presentation can be used in class, driven by the teacher, but it is also ideal as a guide for self-study.

*Not really suitable for handouts, as there are many animated sequences that would overlap on the printed page.*
