    I really enjoyed this resource.  It had a great scaffolding of content. I liked how the students were led along through the concepts and then practiced the concept.  The students were provided with an easy phrase to memorize about rounding "Five and above give it a shove, four and below leave it alone".  The student were also given an alternative way of thinking of rhyming by using a numberline.  I thought it was clever to use both as students absorb concepts differently and this addresses multiple learning styles.  I like the feedback given when they answered the questions correctly and incorrectly; it seems very helpful.

Technical Remarks:

Slide 46 did not coordinate correctly with slide 48.  The sounds did not play automatically when the student got the answer correct, it might be nice if the sound played automatically without having to click on it to hear the clapping.  It might also be nice to be able to go back to previous slides if the student wants to re-read a section, but there aren't any "back" buttons.

This is a fantastic resource for teaching rounding! This Stand Alone Instructional Resource teaches a complicated math subject and gently guides the user through rules, examples, and prompts. When a user chooses a wrong answer, there is an applicable prompt that further explains how to apply the rule. It also uses a visual aid that breaks down the rounding concepts into units, which I found to be very helpful. It is very thourough and clearly designed into three parts. There is a helpful rhyme that is used throughout the StAIR that reinforces the material presented. 

Technical Remarks:

3 answer slides need to be edited. And there was a spelling error on slide 61: "hundreds" --> "hundreths"

It was easy to navigate, had clear directions, and appropriate interactive buttons.
