The In-Class Presentation

In statistics class next week on the last day of class we are all doing our in-class group presentations. There are roughly ten groups that are each giving a five-minute presentation during a 75-minute class period. So far, not so bad. Oh, wait, did I mention that these are PowerPoint presentations and that the instructor has not given any directions like "send your slides ahead of time so that they can all be loaded on one laptop." Nope. So we'll have ten groups each with their own laptop giving a five minute presentation plus laptop switching during a 75 minute class period on the last day of class.

Maybe I'm just skeptical and cynical. It might go fine.
