Research Tips and Resources
When you are preparing a talk, especially for the first time, you will undoubtedly have many questions about how best to prepare. Joseph A. Gallian published an article in Math Horizons, which contains advice on planning and polishing a math talk. According to Gallian, "The ability to do a PowerPoint presentation well is a valuable skill that many students will find useful in connection with their academic work and employment."
