TED
Talk Analysis

TED
talks are organized and highly-vetted public speeches that give normal
people—people like you and me—a chance to spread their message to the world.
Visit TED.com and watch several TED
speakers. Note that you can sort by topic, speaker, and a host of other
criteria. You can watch any TED
talk you wish. If you’re looking a more concentrated list, you might also wish
to visit this link, which highlights the 25 most popular TED talks
of all time
.

After
watching a TED talk (or a few!), write a short 300-500 word (1.5-2 page)
analysis of that talk. Please ensure that you cite the talk you watched in
appropriate APA formatting. You should answer the following questions in your
analysis:

What
is the topic and who is the speaker?

How
does the speaker get the audience’s attention in the introduction?

What
are the main points of the talk? Are they easily identifiable?

What
techniques of delivery does the speaker use effectively (e.g., emotion, vivid
language, nonverbals, humor, etc.)? Please be sure to provide examples.

How
does the speaker conclude the speech? Does it echo the themes in the
introduction and “tie the knot” or does it go in a different direction?

Is
the speech effective? Did it leave an impact on you? Tell us why or why not.

What
did you learn about speech delivery after listening to this speech?

Part 2

Pick
a company whose sales you want to model and predict. Look up their sales
information and pick 2 years of data. Using that information, create a linear
equation that can be used to predict the sales of the company. Once you have
your equation, predict the sales 2 years from now.

Make
sure you include in your post the links where you found the relevant
information. Clearly show your work. This includes naming the company, sharing
the ordered pairs, defining variables, finding the slope, determining the
equation, and then using that equation to predict.

Part 3

2.You
throw a softball straight up into the air at a velocity of 30 feet per second.
You release the softball at a height of 5.8 feet and catch it when it falls
back to a height of 6.2 feet. Use the position equation to write a mathematical
model for the height of the softball.
