This resource is a PowerPoint intended to provide instruction on the order of operations and the Distributive Property. The PowerPoint provides very little instruction. Related terms are provided but not defined and are not typical for US math. In addition, the word problem is given in British pounds, which may provide an opportunity for students to explore unit conversions, but takes away from the overall intent of the PowerPoint. The Distributive Property is shown using an area model. There is an error on the fourth screen (the second rectangles area should be 5 x 4). Unless students are familiar with British currency, this PowerPoint would require many adjustments before being easily used in a classroom.
