Create an 18- to 20-slide presentation on one of the topics below. You many use various sources, including your textbook or other scholarly material. Since you will not be presenting this PowerPoint to your instructor or class mates in person, you may need to add written explanation for the contents of your slides. If this becomes necessary, you may use the PowerPoint slide notes function to provide brief explanations.
Once completed upload the assignment to Blackboard.
Pick one of the five topics:
- Describe the differences between the burning of a solid fuel and the burning of gaseous and liquid fuels.
- Describe the thermal and chemical processes that result in the ignition of, and during the burning of a solid.
- Describe the hazards to people and property from fire.
- Describe the most important toxic gases in smoke.
- Describe the concept of limiting hazards and its role in fire protection.
Visual emphasis such as bold, italicized, or underlined text should be used sparingly in order to maximize the prominence of key points. Each slide should address a single concept, and slides should follow a logical progression, each building on the other.
Treat your PowerPoint slides like you would any research paper—provide in-text citations and a reference slide for any outside sources, including direct quotations, paraphrased words or ideas, tables and data, and images. The title and reference slides are not included in the required slide count.
