1 Good job! Beyond a photo of finished model, no further recommendations
2/9 Why did you not include the photo of model? Also, see the general comments at the end of the recommendations for the 1st drafts, in particular the sections “Too much text on a slide” and “References”
3 Needs to be converted from Word to a slide show program like power point
4 Slides should not be a substitute for note cards for what you want to say (slide 2 for instance). Please combine the info from slides 1 and 2 into one title slide.  Slide 4 continues to have an obvious error regarding the numbers. Slide 6 has calculations that make no sense.
5 Did not receive any materials.
6 Very well-presented. However, it could include more substance by including questions that were raised. You use google maps for time and distance (should say so in the credits). How does google do this? Are traffic lights taken into account when walking on streets? Please calculate rates (mph) and analyze.
7 Nice work! Needs references and summary slide. Bar graph doesn’t illustrate anything. Perhaps redo using just the weight of one vehicle (car, bus, train).
8 Beautiful model! You say that the dimensions (width, height) turned out differently. Explain how so and why.
10 Good job! Can’t wait to hear what you have to say. You need summary and reference slides. What did you learn? What questions were raised by your investigation?
11 Good job! You need summary and reference slides. What did you learn? What questions were raised by your investigation?
12 Did not receive any materials.
13 You shouldn’t state who did what for the slide show. Project is a group effort. Besides all the facts that you have provided (perhaps a few too many), what did you learn doing the project that you can share with the audience? Bar graph needs to properly labeled. What are the units?
14 Please change the order: Present the bridge and background itself, then the quotes from your interviews, and only then the brochure: which should be displayed as 2 separate slides (display each side as large as possible so we can see the beautiful job you did). Finish with the summary (too many words) and the references.
15 The presentation is visually beautiful.  You really use the fancy features of powerpoint. Please divide slide 6 into 3 slides so that you can provide an optimal scale for each component (time, distance and rate) and discuss each component individually. Please make a summary slide. What did you learn? What questions arose during your investigation?
16 Beautiful photos! You need summary and reference slides. What did you learn? What questions were raised by your investigation? What about the hands on component?  Not clear what your math/science component is. Presenting number facts is not math.
17 Nice improvement. You need a reference slide as well as photos for your hands-on component.  What is your math/science component.
18 No updated submission.
