Chem 201 Oral Presentation

Oral Presentation: What is required for Chem 201

Instructions for preparing your oral presentation are available for downloading as:

   A PowerPoint file
   PDF format

Some ground rules for your oral presentation:

  • There are 6 lab experiments that can be presented
  • See the class schedule for the dates of the oral presentations
  • You cannot present the first lab you perform – this lab must be a written lab
  • Sign up is first-come, first-served, with the caveats:
    • All 6 labs will be presented (unless there is <6 students in the class)
      • If there are more than 6 students, then one or more labs may have 2 students signed up (but no more than two)
    • Send Prof Matthews and e-mail with the lab you want to present. If the lab is available and there are no other problems (see above), the lab is yours to present.
