Mr B's PowerPoints
For the use of my students, and any other teachers that want to use them as a basis for making their own / or just plain use them

Legal Disclaimer - These powerpoint presentations are ones I've put together for use in my classes and for my students. Images have been obtained via the net under the fair use doctine of the copyright laws - as well as copyleft - and some of the images are mine.

Disclaimer 2 - The powerpoint presentations here are my guidelines and reminders - each has a series of additional stories and interpretations and embellishments when presented. The key information is there - the bigger story is missing. Of course, student response adds to the overall experience.

Disclaimer 3 - They are also always in flux!!! so they change occasionally - as I get better images, or understand things better, or have better stories to present. ALSO - some are incomplete!!!

To Cheat and see what is there without the descriptions - before I have them all linked
