i am having trouble making the powerpoint downloadable so if you have problems i can email it to you. i just need an email address. but first i will continue to work on getting the download button to work

I made this powerpoint as part of my computers in education class at Grand Valley State University with my partner on the project. It was made quickly and the focus of the project was on using non-linear transistions to make an interactive powerpoint not neccesarily on fraction or content. if this powerpoint would help you feel free to use it and change it as needed. i hope it helps.
