Directions
• Left click on the presentation ICON located at the bottom of
the slide directory to the left of the this slide.
• Each slide will transition to the correct answer automatically
in 2:00 minutes. The correct answer will transition in 5
seconds.
• Do not worry about writing down the correct answer for now.
You will have the opportunity to do that at the end of the two
minute drill
• Good luck
• Some of the the slides will transistion faster than others as
some timers are intentionally set to less than 2 minutes.
