Develop a PowerPoint presentation on the environmental toxicology of Arsenic element
Develop a 20 slide PowerPoint presentation on the environmental toxicology of Arsenic (As) element.
PowerPoint is an important professional tool that has a lot of capabilities to aid you in educating a variety of audiences on important environmental topics. Your goal in building a PowerPoint presentation is to grab the attention of the audience and keep it. To accomplish this goal, you need to keep your presentation interesting. Make sure you use a font size that can be seen in the back of the room. The use of colors adds to the appeal. Photos, graphs, and tables help to visually communicate ideas. The audience is there to listen to you, the expert, not read a report. Avoid using paragraphs. Simple sentences or bullets are best.
Instructions: Develop a 20 slide PowerPoint presentation on the environmental toxicology of Arsenic (As) element. You should be able to research a lot of this material as you work through the homework assignments throughout the session.
The presentation should be organized in the style of a scientific presentation. As such, it should have the following sections:
1 – Introduction: Defines the purpose of the presentation. It should also include the high points of the chemical nature of the element (atomic number, valence states, etc.). Also, report what the abundance of the element is in the Earth’s crust and in seawater.
2 – Uses: Describe the uses of the selected element. In addition to course resources, you may also find useful information from the USGS Minerals Information Team (http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/index.html). Find details on each element under “Commodities.”
3 – Environmental Guidelines: Summarize environmental guidelines for the elements in drinking water, soil (residential and industrial), stream sediment, and for acute and chronic toxicity to aquatic organisms. Note: there may not be guidelines for all elements in all media.
4 – Pathways of Environmental Impact: Describe pathways that the element can affect humans and aquatic organisms. Are there key chemical transformations that affect the degree of impact? What are they?
5 – Case Study: Describe at least one case study that highlights the environmental toxicology of your element to humans, aquatic organisms, or other wildlife. You must find an example in the scientific literature. Also, construct a figure or table to help summarize the main points of your case study.
6 – Conclusion: Summarize your major findings in a slide or two.
7 – References: You must cite all of your sources of information using APA format.
Some of the things I will look for — Instructions are followed and required topics are covered. Presentation is clearly and logically organized. Demonstrates a clear understanding of the chosen topic. Ideas are clearly presented. The writing was grammatically correct, clear and concise. The presentation is well formulated and easy to read and understand. Correct terminology was used when needed. PowerPoint is used effectively. References to the course text and to other source materials are properly cited in APA format.
