Media Folder Description:

This three-page handout gives guidance for designing a mathematics presentation based on the needs of the audience. For example, strategies are provided for giving the audience reminders when they may wish they could look back to an earlier part of the presentation, giving the audience time to think when they may wish they could slow the presentation, and telling the audience what’s coming when they may wish they could fast-forward to see why you’re doing what you’re doing. Advice addresses both how to give a research talk and how to give a class lecture.
