Project 1 Presentations
are going to spend a week looking at various ways that people visualized
the data from Project 1. There are always multiple ways to solve a
visualization problem and this lets you see several alternatives that
you may not have thought of, or may have thought of but couldn't figure
out how to implement. As you look at the interactive visualizations and
listen to the presentations, compare the presenter's solution to yours.
What did you do better? What did that person do better? How would you
improve your solution based on what you are seeing?
I would prefer that every student presents their work to the class, but
given the class size that will be impractical, so we will spend the
Tuesday class after the project is due meeting in groups of 3-4 where
each student will show their solution to their local group, and the
group will discuss the merits of each solution. At the end of Tuesday
each group will produce a web-based report on what the group liked about
each solution, and a photo of the group in the classroom, and email the
location of the web page to the TA. Be sure to include the names of
everyone in your group at the top of the report.
The group will also choose an overall favorite solution to present on
On Thursday each group will have 5 minutes (and 5 minutes only) to
present their solution. Please rehearse your talk so you will be able to
say everything you want to say in that time, but also effectively use
all of the time. Finishing early is not good. Finishing over time is
also not good. Everyone in the group needs to speak so work out how you
are going to divide up the presentation.
You should try to form your 2-3
person teams for project 2 by the end of this week, email the names of
the members to andy, and start working on your project. If you have a
partial team you can email those names. If you want andy to add you to a
team then you need to email andy. If you do not email about wanting to
be in a team for project 2 then we will assume you are not interested in
continuing in the course.
