Activity 3 – Project
Design an infographic that compares the exchange rates for the countries to that of the United States (or other developed country).
- For information on IMF and exchange rates see the resources.
- Design an infographic to show the exchange rates in these developing (or undeveloped) countries to the US (if you are outside the US you may use your own country if it is a developed country or another major developed country that influences your business).
- You can investigate other infographics online through an internet search to help you envision your own. However, yours must be original and specific to the countries you have chosen.
- This is your first infographic and will later become part of the whole package of infographics you complete for the final project.
