Excellent StAIR!!  I really like the layout of the tutorial.  It's easy to navigate through the lesson and the options of things to do offer a good deal of variety for the student.  The steps for solving are provided so the student can refer to that if he or she gets stuck.  I like the vocabulary terms option as well.  A great list of websites is included too!  Nice work! I can't think of anything I'd change.



Technical Remarks:

Easy navigation, links work, good layout that isn't overwhelming

This material would work with a variety of students as it uses analogies, acronymns, and varous instructional startegies to assist students in remember the order of operations.  The lesson is easy to follow and explanations are clear.  This would work well with students who need additional review of the order of operations. You could use this with students as a follow or practice assignment as well.

Technical Remarks:

The powerpoint is easy to use and follow.
