Thislessonwill allow the students to learn about the a, b, and c values of a quadratic function in standard form. They will be quizzed on their learning and need to pass the mini quizzes in order to proceed to the next lesson.
After mastering quadratics in standard form, they will be led into beginning the quadratic formula. This is a nice introduction of quadratic formula, teaching them a song to remember the formula and then showing an example of how to apply the quadratic formula. This will lead them into a question on quadratic formula to test their knowledge and application.

This resource is clear and easy to navigate through. Being able to use and understand the quadratic formula is also an essential aspect of the Algebra 1 curriculum. In terms of the UDL principles, the content was represented using the author's "voice" and the embedded video. To make this StAIR even more effective, graphing the quadratic function with an emphasis on how the a, b, and c is connected to the function, and/or what the solution of the quadratic formula means, can add a different way of representing, expressing, and engaging students. Similarly, adding a real life connection will also enhance the level of motivation, engagement, and involvement of students. Another suggestion is to add some form of "timing" restrictions to each of the navigational button in order to enfore students to complete all the "work" on a slide before moving on to the next. Overall, this resource can be used as a learning as well as a reinforcement tool.

The presentation was designed will to provide information and check for understanding. The UDL was satisfied bu including voice desriptions along with pictoral descriptions
The instrictional stategy on demonstrating the content and scafolding were evident. The ShowMe presentation was well done. Good use of technology to demonstrate the concept.
Incorportaing a "Real World" application would give the user a better contextual mind set while learning this concept.
Audio comes out a little chopy and was distracting.
Several broken links.
Embedding the ShowMe into the power point would streamline this lesson.
