Presentation Transcript

  1. PowerPoint Karaoke

  2. PowerPoint Karaoke • You will get the chance to give a presentation based on unseen slides • This will develop your ability to talk freely about a subject • Being able to talk about an unknown subject will boost your confidence in your own ability • Try to draw on what you already know to develop what is written on the slides

  3. How it works… • Pick one of the options and try to speak about it for a few minutes • Try to do this with a group of people • Once you have presented to your group, try to think about points you did well, and areas for improvement • Use the button to choose your topic and return to the list once your presentation is finished

  4. Do we have a volunteer? • Trees • Great Britain • The Internet • Red • Green • Blue • Chocolate • Paper Aeroplanes • Statistics • Manchester • Weather • Baking Cakes

  5. CHOCOLATE

  6. History of Chocolate

  7. Health Benefits/Risks • Circulatory benefits • Aphrodisiac • Muscle recovery • Obesity risk • Acne • Lead (binds to cocoa shells) • Toxicity in animals

  8. Types of Chocolate

  9. World's tallest chocolate sculpture • 6.6m tall • Made in Manhattan • Over 1,000kg of Chocolate • Modeled after Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building and Chrysler Building • 30 hours to complete

  10. PAPER AEROPLANES

  11. Material Considerations • Paper's density is higher than materials such as balsa wood • A conventional origami paper glider has lower performance due to higher drag and imperfect aerodynamics • Conventional balsa gliders will always outperform conventional paper aircraft for this reason. • However, paper gliders have a far higher strength/thickness ratio • A sheet of office-quality 80 g/sq m paper, has approximate in-scale strength of aircraft-grade sheet aluminum

  12. Flight Distance vs. Paper Size, Thickness and Wing shape

  13. World Records • There are multiple goals for a flight: • Distance. • Time • Aerobatic (looping). • Stable flight to understand flight mechanics of a good plane.

  14. STATISTICS

  15. Definition • Statistics is the science of making effective use of numerical data relating to groups of individuals or experiments. It deals with all aspects of this, including not only the collection, analysis and interpretation of such data, but also the planning of the collection of data, in terms of the design of surveys and experiments Dodge, Y. (2003) The Oxford Dictionary of Statistical Terms, OUP

  16. Distributions

  17. Misuse of Statistics • Discarding unfavorable data • Loaded questions • Overgeneralization • Biased samples • Misreporting or misunderstanding of estimated error • False causality • Proof of the null hypothesis • Data dredging • Data manipulation • Linguistically asserting unit measure when it is empirically violated

  18. Manchester

  19. Manchester – Weather

  20. Universities in Manchester • University of Manchester • Formerly UMIST and Manchester Victoria • Manchester Metropolitan University • Notable Alumni: Steve Coogan, Mick Hucknall (Simply Red), Vernon Kay • University of Salford • Leading research in virtual reality, magnetics and optics, genetic algorithms, building design and prosthetics

  21. 2002 Commonwealth Games New buildings: Aquatics Centre, National Squash Centre Manchester Velodrome Built as part of a bid for the 2000 Olympics Football 2 Premiership clubs Manchester United have the widest club fanbase in the world Manchester City are the richest club in the world Sport in Manchester

  35. Trees

  36. What is a tree? • A tree is a perennial woody plant. • It is most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem or trunk with clear apical dominance • A minimum height specification of a tree varies from 3 - 6 m; sometimes with a minimum of 10 cm trunk diameter. • Woody plants that do not meet these definitions by having multiple stems and/or small size, are called shrubs. • Trees are long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old.

  37. Importance of Trees • Trees are an important component of the natural landscape • prevent erosion • provide a weather-sheltered ecosystem • They play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

  38. Tree Houses • Tree houses, are buildings constructed among the branches of trees • Raised above the ground. • Used for recreation, work space, habitation or as temporary retreats.

  39. Forests

  40. Great Britain

  41. An Island… • 9th largest island in the world • Area: 219,000 km2 (84,556 sq mi) • Largest European island • 3rd most populated island on Earth • Surrounded by over 1000 smaller islands and islets

  42. Map of Great Britain
