a writing form of presentation for 5 7 minutes

For Section Six you will record yourself delivering an oral presentation that clearly explains a technical object, material, issue, or concept directly related to your field of study. Keep in mind that you are explaining a technical topic to a general audience: careful audience analysis is critical.


  • The presentation must be delivered extemporaneously (see page 506 in Riordan for a discussion on extemporaneous speaking). An outline is recommended but not required.
  • You are not expected to be an expert presenter; you are expected to present in a polished, organized, well-planned manner.
