 You do not have to respond to a peer this week.

This week's discussion forum discusses designing tables, charts, and graphics. Your proposal must include a minimum of three original graphics (ones you create yourself).

  1. Current Problem section: a minimum of one persuasive graphic
  2. Task Schedule:  a Gantt chart
  3. Budget: a budget table

Look at the examples in the book and the example proposals to get some ideas.

Part 1.  To get started, read Building Wealth: A Beginner's Guide to Securing Your Financial Future, a brochure addressed to the general reader. (To view this brochure, you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download for free.) Your job is to analyze two graphics in this brochure. Start by finding any two graphics in the brochure. For each graphic, state the page number and the title of the graphic. Analyze the graphics by answering the four questions below for each graphic.

  1. What type of graphic is used (e.g., line graph, bar chart, table, etc.)
  2. What is the purpose behind each graphic (i.e., is it informative, persuasive,, or both)
  3. How is the graphic effective in communicating information to the intended audience
  4. How professional is the overall design of the graphic?

Part 2.  Your book discusses several types of graphics (e.g., tables, line graphs, bar charts, pie charts, etc.). For each scenario listed below, pick one type of graphic that would best display the data for the reader. Please explain why the type you picked would be most appropriate for displaying the data.

  1. in a proposal, the long-term cost of a problem
  2. in a feasibility study, the numerical evaluation of criteria
  3. in a progress report, the month-by-month production figures for a product
  4. in a report, survey results of the employees' preferences for three different solutions
