Find a technical journal for your current or planned field of work, and look for an article that has graphs, charts, or tables in it. Select two of the graphic presentations and represent them in a different format. (If something is presented as a Pie Chart, consider using a Bar Chart or other format). You must create two different graphic presentations. Remember to include the reference for the journal source that you choose or a copy of the original graphic representation you presented in a different format. Follow the “good” style formats referenced in “An Engineer’s Guide to Technical Communication” chapter 9, starting on page 158. Excel is a good choice for creating charts and tables and you can paste the results into a word file. Each student is responsible for submitting their own created graphic presentations.
Opinion: When a question asks for your opinion, its answer is exactly that-your opinion. Feel free to use your own opinion.
Cite Examples: For this class, you may use a citation right after the answer to a question, or you may list your references at the end of the project. It is not required to have a separate reference page for this class.
Stating the Question before Answering It: While some reports require that you state the question before your answer, in this class it is not required to do this.
