Mandarin question

The textbook I'm using as a resource to learn Hanzi at the moment occasionally gives me words with 儿 at the end, like 会儿 for example, and the pronunciation is given as "hui4r." This makes sense, but I'm also running across examples like 点儿, given as "dian3r". How is "dianr" pronounced? I'm sure it's simpler than it looks but I'm drawing a blank.
