There are two types of materials you can insert into your assignment that can help your audience better understand what you are presenting: Figures and Tables.
Every figure and table reproduced (copied/pasted) in your written assignment should be captioned and/or cited.
Caption: A description that identifies the image and credits the source (Title/Description. Credit Line.)
Citation: A description that appears in a note or in your works cited. (Creator's Name. Title/Description. Year. Source.)
Figures: Information represented in the form of photos, drawings, images, graphs, charts or maps
