I reviewed your StAIR and must begin by saying that it was so neat. Flawless. It was very easy to navigate through and the activity was very engagjng. I was able to open it and run it with no problem at all. I liked the sound effect. However, it caught me off guard and my speakers where loud. Nevertheless, students will love that. I also liked how you offered additional resources on your last slide. I am very familiar with Kahn Academy. I even have the app on my iPhone. If there is something I could change or add it would be to include a home or end button on every slide. I wanted to go back to the list of resources again, and I had to go through the entire presentation again. But then again, that may be a positive feature for students. I would also prefer it to be longer. Overall, this is was a very effective StAIR. I would use it in my class.

This is a great use of power point! I enjoyed it and was humbled by my lack of
math skills. I liked the examples that asked you what to do next and adding a
few more of these along with some more problems and this would be outstanding.
These not a lot you can do with power point beyond what you have already done. This lesson would be perfect for Camtasia Studio. You could recorded you lessons and quiz throughout the video. This would also allow you to narrate the video.

I really liked your StAIR. I remember learning this in high school and your presentation was clear in the information it presented. I do think another couple of examples would be helpful before going into the assessment.
In the example question, when you answer incorrectly, it doesn't allow you to retry the question before moving on. Also, after the first question in the assessment part, the variables don't match up between the question and possible answers (the equation will say "y" but the answers say "m"). Otherwise, it was easy to navigate and read.
