The concept is fun and the organization is good. Also makes good use of on screen links. Images, fonts, animations, and sound effects are used indiscriminately at times which can be distracting. Good quiz at the end. This a long PPT with lots of information. However, the interaction it will prompt may make students think time is flying by.

Lot's of information here. Maybe even a little too much. There was information that would be great for as low as second grade but then the formulas were too advanced for them. If you were in a grade that was advanced enough to be looking at formulas, then you probably already know the other information presented. I got a little lost with where the buttons were going to take me so ended up covering same information several times. A few suggestions in the technical remarks to help make this more useful. Nice job!

Technical Remarks:

Links seemed to be working however, I might add the following suggestions:

~Slower delivery of the written material. Reading became distracted as a new line of text sails onto the screen.

~Add directions on "Ready to Learn About" page letting students know to click on something

~Question 7: the sentence runs off the page  so you don't know the question being asked.

~I got laughed at on a wrong answer!

This is a great resource, it is laid out well, the slides are very engaging. I think all of the teaching slides are informative and a great review/teaching tool for students who are struggling with the concepts. Students will enjoy working through this resource.

There is a lot of content in this resource, I think that it could even be split up into two different presentations.

Technical Remarks:

All of the links work. The document is very easy to navigate through. There are a variety of transitions which should increase the engagement level of the students.
