Presentation tips

It is important to pace yourself when presenting because it is a 5-6 minutes long presentation, you don’t want to finish too early or too late. Organize your thoughts, not only will it help improve the presentation but also help the audience understand your point. Finally, know what you’re presenting because question will be asked.

One thought on “Class Notes 5-18-17

  1. Thanks Jorge for these notes. Some quick revisions to the presentation schedule:

    1. I believe Jaraad volunteered for Tuesday
    2. Jared, missing from the schedule, is going Thursday
    3. Aneita and Pedro have switched to Thursday
    3. Jennifer is not presenting

    *Also, a reminder that those who volunteered to present on Tuesday will receive extra credit (five points on all aspects of the project). Others, who chose to go on Thursday, can take the extra time, and submit their work (via Dropbox/OpenLab, and present) by Th 5/25 at 4pm.
