This resource was a good introduction for students making a transition from solving one or two step equations to solving multi-step equations. The video provides a number of examples that would then be very useful when students complete their own practice problems. It would be useful if the steps listed in the video could be more easily accessed throughout the presentation.

The look of the presentation is very polished and consistent. I enjoyed that the problems started rather easy and got harder as the practice continued. Additionally I thought the presentation did a good job of addressing common algebra mistakes (such as adding terms with variables to integer terms). The video instruction was also available for reference on incorrect answers. This video addressed both visual and auditory learning.

Technical Remarks:

The presentation worked extremely well, no missing or faulty buttons.

The visual appeal of the overall presentation is outstanding.  The color scheming provides a pleasing, though not distracting visual element for the presentation.  Coupled with the fun and innovative pictures, I can not imagine a student that would not get a kick out of it.  The instructional video that was linked within the presentation provided a good bit of information to aid in understanding.  What I did not like was having that video as, what seems like the only instructional piece within this presenation.  I would have liked to see more variety in teaching.  The volume of practice at the end and the link to the "Rags to Riches" game provided students with a lot of practice to demonstrated understanding.  

Technical Remarks:

I did have an issue with the "incorrect" slide.  Each time it would prompt me with a dialogue box asking about a certain file designator that I did not have.  I easily clicked "cancel" and the picture of Wyle E. Coyote came bouncing in anyway.  Not obtrusive, but a bit of a nuisance if I end up getting a lot wrong.
