proof 4

PowerPoint Collection

Note the new Resources page to which I have added David Millward’s excellent PowerPoint collection. The collection includes resources for Number, Algebra, Geometry and Statistics, there are also three resources on proof (circle theorems, Pythagoras and the sum of the angles in a triangle).

For some useful links on presentations see this post which includes links to sites with PowerPoint templates and advice on good presentation design.

Finally for your amusement Don McMillan’s original ‘Life After Death by PowerPoint


There is some good advice on the web on presentations, a subject close to teachers’ hearts.

Sacha Chua wrote recently on presentations;she often writes so well on learning. Her hand-drawn presentations make a refreshing change.

If you like the hand-drawn style, Betsy Streeter’s Ten Great Uses For a Pencil and How to Draw What’s Not There!

These are such a good reminders that it is the content that matters not the tools.

Sacha’s comment ‘Paper is the New PowerPoint’ reminds me of  Screenr – with a graphics tablet this is a great way to respond to student queries. I think for me an online whiteboard tool is the new LaTeX!

An excellent reminder that PowerPoint is just a tool from Clear Presentation Design

From Alexei Kapterev:  Death by PowerPoint (and how to fight it).

From Jessedee: You Suck at PowerPoint

and from Alexander Osterwalder Good PowerPoint Design:
