7. Charts

Identify the most effective graphical elements to use in your presentation

In this step, decide what charts will provide the most convincing display of your quantitative evidence.  Take your index cards from step 6, and on each card that represents quantitative data, draw a thumbnail sketch of which chart or graphic you will use to best present that data.

Then continue to step 8: Slide layout.
