Prezi to teach math

Why are presentation tools good for teaching. For one thing it is inefficient and inconsiderate to make students wait while the teacher writes on the board. If the slides are prepared in advance then the class can go as fast as they can absorb the knowledge. Second, a well prepared lecture reflects the teacher at their best, well prepared and as creative as possible. Finally, school kids are in rebellion mode. That is not a bad thing, challenging the old ways has brought the human race out of the caves and made us masters of our planet. But rebellion can be very disruptive to a lesson plan. If the classroom is ruled by a slide show activity, not by a person, then there is just less to rebel against, especially if the activity is fun and interesting.
