Fractions are always challenging for students.  The lesson gave a great overview of basic fraction uses and concepts before assessing the students knowledge.  The presentation could easily be used for a student struggling with fractions or as a quick review.  Graphics and other features of the powerpoint made the presentation fun, especially for the age group.

Technical Remarks:

It may be nice for a table of contents at the beginning so that students who didn't have a chance to complete the whole lesson could start where they left off.

I spent about an hour reviewing and found that it had great use of PowerPoint functions.  This would appeal to an elementary audience and it engaged multiple learning modalities.  The feedback to the particpant was appropriate, rewarding, and encouraged a continued interest.  The format of the pages is were consistant and this helped with progression through the project.  The audio was additionally helpful for understanding.  It could be a useful classrom tool. 

Technical Remarks:

My problem was not being able to access the file from MERLOT.  I used it from the portfolio public files so the upload or saved format may need to be changed.
