    • Enter the data into a mini-spreadsheet and PowerPoint converts your data into a chart
    • Vary in format: Column, Bar, Pie, Line, X,Y/Scatter Plot, or many other formats
  • Example
    • This example uses data from the Baker College Instructional Technology Survey 2000
    • The data are percentages of faculty who use PowerPoint or would like to use PowerPoint in their classes

  • Animation Tips
    • Animation can be used to control the appearance of items on the screen
    • Animation can be used to make different versions of a graphic appear to create a sense of change
  • Example 1 Maslow’s Hierarchy Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization
  • Example 2 Maslow’s Hierarchy Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization
  • Example 3 Maslow’s Hierarchy Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self-Actualization
  • Animation Note
    • Animation effects that make things disappear do not effect printed output
