I'm trying to figure out how to show several lines of text one a slide, one like at a time.

Do I have to create a separate slide for each new line of text or is there a way to create only one slide with all the text, and have each new line become visible with each mouse click?

Spcifically, I want to create an algebra presentation in which I show each step of an algebra problem. It should start with the problem, then the problem with step 1 shown, then the problen with step 1 and step 2 shown, etc until the entire solution is shown.

What should I do?

Sure can. If you're inserting equation objects, you can use the Animation Effects dialog box. Just select each object and you can change the order and how they fly in.

If its bulleted text, the same dialog box offers text effects such that each new line appears separately.

I haven't found this. Where exactly is it? What are the exact steps to get to it? Thanks.

Slideshow > Effects

When the dialog box opens, take special note of the buttons across the top
