### Mathematician Presentation Checklist

#### Does the Powerpoint Presentation:

#### Presentation

- start on time?

- flow smoothly?

- include enough eye contact with the audience?

- look professional?
- last between 7-10 minutes total?
- make effective use of PowerPoint?

#### Influences, Support, Barriers and Diversity Issues

- address the issue of influences that led them to becoming
a mathematician, by answering some (or all, if possible) of the following:

What influences led them to becoming a mathematician?

Did they have support from family and society?

Why did they become a mathematician?

What kind of barriers did they face while becoming a mathematician?
- deeply explore this issue?
- address
gender, racial or multicultural/ethnic issues in this mathematician's
experiences
address this issue?

If your mathematician is a woman, be sure to also address whether
they are married and have a family, and whether their husband is also
a mathematician or scientist.

If your mathematician is a white man with no apparent diversity issues, be sure to address whether they have mentored women or other traditional minorities in mathematics.
- deeply explore this issue?
#### Mathematical Style

- address this issue by answering as many of the following
as possible?

How do they describe the process of doing mathematics and/or mathematical research?

How do they get the flashes of insight that they need to do research?

How do their
mathematical minds work? Do they have a photographic memory? Are they really good with numbers? Are they good at visualization?

Does the mathematician often collaborate (ie write papers with
other mathematicians) or instead mostly work by themselves?
