Well done Jenny, coming from someone who is dyslexic with numbers. I like the way you structured the content in very clear and concise manner. The flow in  which numeracy was presented was not overwhelming.

Technical Remarks:

easy to navigate and visually appealing. This  presentation was well layed out and the flow was consistent. The slides had all their functional requirements.

Very nice Jenny! I think this would be perfect in a middle school classroom as a way of practice.  I liked the way you set up your slides as it was very easy to navigate.  

Technical Remarks:

I did not find any technical issues with your presentation. All your buttons worked and I thought the navigation was easy to use and perfect for middle school
