M3 - demonstrate and justify the use of suitable presentation methods using information from three sources Introduction In M3 I will be showing a PowerPoint On the three sources of information that I used for my P5 project. I will be justifying in the presentation why each method was used. I will be describing why each method is useful to me. I will be describing database/written report, PowerPoint and line/bar chart and database in detail and the purposes I have used them for. Written report A written report is very useful is bring a lot of advantages in many different ways. It is very useful when you want to describe something in detail as you can get your point across using formal language on a written report just like the way I have presented my information on my written report.

For example, you can make slides that are much edited with animations and background colours. Background colours make it look more interesting as it catches the audience's attention as the plain background would make the audience very bored as it is just writing. Also you can use bold fonts which can catch the reader's attention as the bold writing stands out and you can show what work is important. Also bold writing stands out so people automatically look at this when doing a important topic. Also PowerPoint is very good for presenting graphs as it allows you to set up the page for you to explain each graph. PowerPoint enhances the level of learning, enjoyment, and excitement in the classroom as it can keep people interested with what I am going to present. When I am presenting my work the audience is more focused rather than on Microsoft word as it could get boring with load of writing. The audience can also have just by looking at a presentation have fun with learning as I could add music, pictures even videos.

Database I used a table in Microsoft word to help me create a table on how much money I made and lost on each day. The table was very easy to make and was easy to read as well, it is not as easy as using a line/bar chart but you can see the expect amount of money in which the money went up by. I used it to see the exact prices of the money when it went up and went down. This was the easiest way to see the amount of money that went up and went down, this also allowed me to make line and bar charts as I just have to highlight it and the graph automatically appears. Conclusion In this task I have understand the advantages and I have understand how helpful these software's are to me. I have explained how each one is helpful to me and to other people. I would say that Microsoft Word is the most useful software to me because I always use it for different assignments. But in the project I used I think that I personally think that I used PowerPoint the most I needed it to present my graphs and to present to the class. Also I analysed the graphs using the PowerPoint and I used it mostly. Gabby Ajibola ...read more.
