Too Much Text
  • Having too much text
  • Hard to read
  • Are you going to read a book to the audience?
  • Makes the text look busy

12
Too Much Text
  • Biodiesel may cause engine problems, because it
    may eat and degrade various seals that lead to
    injector and fuel pump failures 2
  • Has a higher cloud point around 00 C 2
  • Cloud point-when fuel filter clogs
  • Much higher for saturated fats 2
  • Most engine manufacturers have not extended
    warranties for using biodiesel 2
  • Fuel oxidation lower storage life 2
  • Oxidation leads to hydroperoxides, which can form
    insoluble gums 2
  • Improves engine lubrication, extending engine
    life 2
  • Soygold
  • Ag Environmental Products LLC

13
Too Much Text
  • Too much information!
  • I had a list of problems and then attached one
    benefit at the end.
  • I spread the info. over three slides.

14
Too Much Text
  • Problems with biodiesel
  • Biodiesel causes engine problems
  • Degrades seals
  • Fuel pump
  • Fuel injectors
  • Poor cold fuel properties
  • Higher cloud point
  • Higher pour point

15
Too Much Text
  • Problems with biodiesel
  • No warranties for engines that use biodiesel
  • Lower storage life
  • Fuel oxidizes
  • Can form insoluble gums in tank

16
Too Much Text
  • Benefit of biodiesel
  • Improves engine lubrication
  • Could extend engine life
  • Ag Environmental Products LLC manufacturers
    Soygold as fuel additive

17
Color Choice
  • Keep color schemes simple
  • Dark Background
  • Bright Fonts
  • Light Background
  • Dark Fonts
  • You can be creative, if in good taste!
  • You can change the color or background of a slide
    for emphasis

  • Kenneth R. Szulczyk
  • My Research Area

19
Color Choice
  • Can you read this?
  • Can you read this?
  • Can you read this?
  • Can you read this?
  • This is the ugliest background I have seen (from
    Microsoft)

20
Animation and Sound
  • Moving text
  • If movement is simple
  • If movement is consistent
  • Avoid annoying animations!
  • You can use movement to hide text until needed.

21
Animation and Sound
  • You can add sound, if it is part of your
    presentation
  • Sound can be annoying!

22
Pictures and Graphs
  • Only add pictures and graphics to enhance your
    presentation
  • Breaks up the monotony of the presentation

23
Greenhouse Effect
  • Greenhouse gases
  • Accumulate in atmosphere
  • Prevent the suns radiation from leaving the
    earth
  • Earth gradually warms over time

24
Pictures and Graphs
  • Do not include complicated graphs
  • Only add graphs or diagrams if it strengthens
    your message

26
Pictures and Graphs
  • If graphs are in presentation
  • Clearly define all units
  • Keep graph simple

27
Pictures and Graphs
  • What are the units?
  • The graph has nice colors
  • Hard to read the numbers

28
Mathematics
  • Complicated mathematics may not be good for
    presentations
  • Too much information to digest.
  • If you have to do mathematics, give handouts

29
Mathematics
30
Mathematics
  • Did you remember all that in 1 minute?
  • If you include an equation, define all
    variables.

31
Format
  • Outline your lecture (or presentation)
  • Avoid full sentences
  • Use about 2 to 6 bullets per slide
  • Check spelling
  • Word and PowerPoint will underline a word in red,
    if that word is not in dictionary

32
Format
  • Organize the presentation well
  • Place similar ideas together
  • Face the audience
  • Dont read your presentation
  • Very mechanical
  • Dont hide behind the computer

33
Last Note

34
