Марина Викторовна, в Вашей презентации почему-то совсем не указаны источники иллюстраций, а источники текстов даны некорректно. Кстати, "Список использованной литературы" пишется без запятой. Запятая ставилась бы в случае: "Литература, использованная нами, была указана", то есть в случае причастного оборота, стоящего после определяемого слова.
