Pyramids Before the Baby Boom... Timeline The Baby Boom Generation X Your audience will love that they have an overview, too! What have we covered? What's coming up? The Lucky Few Why were they called this? What made them lucky? Why "few"? (hint: look at the population pyramid!) In practice, this means that you need to scale up section titles, so they can be read when zoomed out. Also, think of arranging all these into a meaningful form! And return to the overview in your Path a lot (Which is simply a large frame) A population pyramid, also called "age pyramid", is a horizontal bar graph that illustrates the distribution of different age groups in a population, showing the number of males on the left and of females on the right.

What the heck are those? 1965 - 1983 there was Demographics? Generations? Where do you fit in? W e 0 : . . ) w w That's All Folks! Quiz: How was this pig made?
Hint: It's only Prezi, no Clipart. One more thing... One more thing....if you want a strong finale, a large zoom out effect at the end is one solution.
