Great STAIR.  I am not a big fan of math, but if I was a student in your class, I can see how this would make it easier for me to learn.  Great job.

I had to open this document and view it as an editor in order to see all of the pages (see below: technical remarks).  I liked the idea of having the four buttons on slide three that give a preview of what type of equation will be worked on.  I would imagine that often times students just get lost in the endless possibilities of how to solve an equation.  By telling them in advance that this equation will be an (e.g. addition and multiplication) equation, it sets them in the right frame of mind to solve that equation.  It is nice that students can choose which order to go in, as well as go back 'home' at any time.  I would suggest speeding up some of the transitions/animations, or better yet, giving students the ability to click through at their own pace.  There were some times I found myself impatiently waiting for the next graphic to appear.  I like the simplicity of the buttons (it is always clear where you need to click or what your options are), but wouldn't mind seeing a background that isn't add some energy to the appearance.

Technical Remarks:

When opening this document as a powerpoint show, I can not get past slide 3.  The two buttons on the left do not link to anything.  When I click on the two links on the right, it takes me to a blank page that never loads.  I opened the document and enabled editing, and went through the slides one at a time.  When doing so, I'm not sure why some of your links don't work (they appear to be pointing to the right place).  Also, I could not get any sound to play, despite the fact that there was a speaker icon on each page.
