Keynote Presentation (Links to dipity and Doc).


What surprised you most about this information?

The information that surprised me the most was how the U.S were welcoming immigrants from other countries, but the U.S ended up having fights and wars with other countries too. The Chinese immigration surprised me too, because I didn't learn much about Asian countries coming to the United States. 

What seemed quite obvious about explaining this data set?

The obvious factors were the United States problems. It is clear that immigration declined in the United States worse times, and immigration rose when the U.S were going through good times. 

Looking at the overall trend and incorporating what you know about the U.S presently, predict and defend the immigration trend for the next two decades.

The U.S will bring in more immigrants, because immigrants want to have a better life. Immigrants come to the United States to be free and have a better life. They want to have an education and have job. They want to start a family, and have their children getting an education and having a good job. The U.S is for them to start over on a good note.

Describe on how you made a decision to visually represent the information.

We chose to do a timeline, because it was visually appealing and easy to read. We thought it was easy for the viewers to understand the information.

What parts of the group were challenging?

The challenging part is Dipity not working fast enough. It didn't respond well, it was very slow. It held us back, because we had our work done awhile ago, but dipity won't respond and it kept changing our dates to 1969. 

What would you do differently if you had this project to do over?

I would make sure Dipity or any other program I use for the project is stabled and working properly.
