This page describes information for the in-class presentations
and final project (poster presentation). The in-class
and poster presentations are to be done with the same group and
on the same topic (see presentation list below).
The final project: participation in the class symposiom
The final project (a scientific-style poster session) will occur on
Wednesday, December 6, 2006, the last day of class. We will hold a
class symposium on that day in JFB Rm 334. You will display your
group's poster there. All students
will be asked to evaluate other groups' posters.
Go to this site for a checklist
related to details on how to organize your group poster.
In-class Presentations and group assignments
In class presentations will be limited to 12 minutes. Three minutes
will be allowed for questions at the end of the talk.
Beware, you will be asked to stop
your presentation if you exceed 12 minutes.
For advice on how to prepare and present your talk, please
try Ohio State's "Dazzle 'em" site.
We will grade your talks on these criteria:
(1) Organization: does your talk flow logically from point
to point? is it easy for the audience to understand what you have to say?
(2) Professionalism: are your slides free of spelling or
grammatical errors? is information presented in a legible form?
have you practiced your presentation?
(3) Mastery of the material: do you know what you are talking about?
Also, you should use the presentation
checklist at this link.
