AzTech Games Powerpoints & PDFs


GrandmaThe PowerPoint presentations below were created to complement the “Statistics and Probability” and “Expressions and Equations” standards as covered in AzTech Games – and usually in sixth-grade math. We are aligned with Common Core but even if your school is not we are pretty sure you still teach concepts like mean and median, that you’re students still struggle with those pesky time-rate-distance problems. We’ve got you covered!

Topics are in alphabetical order. Mathematics standards are followed by Social Studies standards.

* Timelines

If you’re a teacher, you probably know that timelines are actually a social studies standard, not math. However, that seems like splitting hairs to us. We’re all about teaching math in context and we know from experience that many students struggle with timelines that have dates before the year 0.
