Regarding the decision of filing one or two provisional applications, George White's answer is very on point. You should be aware though that presentations of information are not patentable in many countries, for example most if not all European countries. At the EPO, this is enshrined in Art. 52(d) of the European Patent Convention. When presentations of information are not claimed "as such", then they may be patentable, but pretty much presentations of information are only inventive (i.e. non-obvious) when the following occurs:
"A feature defining a presentation of information produces a technical effect if it credibly assists the user in performing a technical task by means of a continued and/or guided human-machine interaction process (T 336/14 and T 1802/13). Such a technical effect is considered credibly achieved if the assistance to the user in performing the technical task is objectively, reliably and causally linked to the feature. This would not be the case if the alleged effect depends on subjective interests or preferences of the user."
The above excerpt is from the following part of EPO's Guidelines for Examination, which I strongly advise you to read should you want to protect the presentation of information.
As for the algorithm itself, in line with ipesqnyu's answer, I suggest you to read the EPO's Index for Computer-Implemented Inventions of the Guidelines for Examination should you be willing to protect it in Europe.
