1 How to Use PowerPoint Microsoft Office

2 Why Use PowerPoint? PowerPoint is a program that allows you to share your projects with others using graphics, sound, text and movies. PowerPoint connects each page together to form a slideshow. Youre watching a Powerpoint slideshow right now! Its a little plain at the moment, but soon youll see how PowerPoint can create a dynamic presentation.

3 Before you Begin Before you can put your PowerPoint slideshow together, you will need to have done all of your research. You will also need to have a plan. The plan is called a storyboard. A storyboard is a sequence of slides with notes. Slide #2 INTEGERS INTEGERS askl;djf a;lskf woie awofna;kn kasn ;asknd;aslfn als skdljf aksdf ;slkdf a;lksdf a;lksdjf a;ksdjf a;ksdf a;lks.

4 Lets Get Started 2) Click on the Start Button on the task bar at the bottom of you screen. Find the PowerPoint icon. 3) At the New Slide window, select Title Slide, then OK. 1) Click on a blank spot on your computers desktop. Go to file, new folder to create a folder. Name the folder after your project (ex. Integers). From now on, everything you gather, create, or need for your project will go into this folder.

5 Toolbars There are a couple of toolbars that will help make your job a little easier; Formatting and Drawing. To display these toolbars, go to View, Toolbars. Choose Formatting and Drawing. View-Toolbars-Drawing

6 Formatting - Fonts Choose fonts that are easy for the audience to read from anywhere in the room. Choose fonts that have upper- and lowercase letters. Use font size, bold and italics to emphasize or de- emphasize information Be consistent; stick with one or two fonts throughout your project. Arial Century Gothic Geneva Georgia Helvetica Tahoma Times New Roman Brush Script Curlz Desdemona Gill Sans Harrington Lucida Handwriting Onyx Good FontsBad Fonts

7 Formatting - Colors Black on white GoodBad Choose colors that contrast. Dark on light or light on dark shows up best. Choose colors that suit your project. For example, a yellow font on a black background would be good choices for a project on space. Black on yellow Maroon on peach Lt. Blue on black Honeydew on olive Plum on gray Midnight on pale blue Gray on white Turquoise on lime Lt. green on gray Black on indigo Banana on tan Salmon on red Grape on plum

8 Formatting - Slide Designs Slide designs enhance the look of your slides. Choose slide designs that are suited for your project. A slide design not only sets the background, it also sets fonts and font colors. You can change them as you wish. This slide design is called Ripple. When a slide design is chosen, it can appear on every slide or just the slide youre working on. To select a slide design, go to Format, Slide design. Select a slide design from the list. Choose Apply to all slides or Apply to the current slide. Click Apply. Format-Slide Design Available Slide Designs

9 Formatting - Solid and Other Backgrounds Dont like the choices of the slide designs? You can choose a solid color, texture or gradient background instead. Go to Format, Background. Solid background - At the background window, choose the color pull-down menu and More Colors. A window of crayon colors will appear. Choose the desired color. Gradients and Textures - At the background window, choose Fill Effects. The fill effect on this page is a texture called blue tissue paper. Select Apply to All if you want all slides to be the same color or Apply if you only want the current slide to be that color. More Colors Fill Effects

10 Title Slide INTEGERS MA.7.1.3: Describe situations represented by integers and absolute value. By: Mr Imamura Math Period Current Date A title slide is like the cover of a book. It contains 1) the title of the project, 2) the authors names and 3) sometimes a photo or illustration. The title is usually in a large font with the authors names slightly smaller. Google Images is a great source for acquiring clip art and photos. Go to Select Images, type the topic name (ex. Integers), and search. Click on the desired image to view the website it came from. Drag the image from the website to the folder on your desktop. Copy and paste the URL of the website to your CREDITS

11 Save…Save…Save Every time you remember, save your project to your project folder. This is to assure that your hard work is recoverable in the event of a computer crash. Its a good idea to save after creating each slide. A PowerPoint project uses a lot of computer memory and sometimes the computer freezes. Save often and you wont regret it. INTEGERS MA.7.1.3: Describe situations represented by integers and absolute value. By Mr Imamura Math Period Current Date

12 Consistency Fonts, colors and backgrounds should not overpower your project. Instead, it should enhance it. Be consistent when choosing fonts, colors, slide designs and background colors; each page should look fairly similar. Its the information on the page that should stand out. Notice how every slide in this slideshow has a heading at the top, center. The font is always Times and the size is 44 point. The information text boxes are also in Times. To make your slides consistent, after youve created a good slide, select Insert, Duplicate Slide. The duplicate slide will be identical to the one before it. Change the information on the duplicate slide.

13 Credits Page Credits 1)Image on Title Slide 2)Definition y.php?word=Integer The credits page is the last page of your project but create it early. As you use books, magazines, and other resources, enter the bibliography on the credits page. A credits page is especially helpful when you acquire information from a website. Simply copy the URL and paste it to your credits page.

14 Math Project – Format The slides between the title slide and credits slide contain the meat of your project. The general format of your math project should include the following slides: Definition, Example, Drawing, or Formula, Question, an Solution to Question. Title Slide Definition Example / Drawing/ Formula Question Solution to Question Credits Page

15 Text Boxes Information on your slides will showcase all of the research that youve done. To create a text box, use the Insert, Text Box. On the slide, right click and drag to make a text box. Choose a font from the formatting toolbar. Type the text. To resize a text box, click on the edge of the text box. Point to a dot, also called a handle, then resize. To move a text box, click on the edge of the text box and drag it to the desired location. Insert-Text Box

16 Graphics Graphics are visually appealing and support the information in the text boxes. You can state that Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain to Hispaniola but having a map to go with your text gives your audience a better understanding of his journey. The map below came from Google Images. Dont forget to give credit to the website that you acquire internet images from on your credits page. To capture the image with a frame, double click the image and change the line color from no line to the desired color. Graphics can also be obtained from Autoshapes in the Drawing toolbar. 5 – (-5) = 10

17 Photos A photo is also a great way to add to your PowerPoint slideshow. The group shot shown here is a team of students who dressed up for the Greek Olympics. To add a photo to your project, use a digital camera to take a picture. Connect the camera to your computer using a USB cable. Your computer should automatically open and detect the cameras connection. Click download to transfer the photos from the camera to your file folder on the computer, or just click and drag the photo into your presentation.

18 Creating Fractions INSERT – OBJECT – MICROSOFT EQUATION 3.0 To create a fraction, click and drag on the fraction displayed on the toolbar.

19 Creating Exponents To create exponents, simply type the equation, but make the exponents and base the same text size. (example = 6, type in as = 6) Type in the following equation: = 6 Use the curser to highlight only the exponent value 2. Next right click on the mouse and select the Font command. The box to the right will appear. Place a check mark in the box titled Superscript. This will change the number to appear as an exponent. End Product: = 6

20 Other considerations Transitions - On the formatting palette, view the different transitions. A transition is what the slides will look like when they change from one slide to the next. Choose a transition that you like. Audio – If you would like to add audio to your presentation, use the Insert- Movies and Sounds command. Find the file (song/clip) you wish to insert. Video Clips – If you would like to insert a video clip in your presentation, use the Insert-Movies and Sounds command. Find your file and insert.

21 Putting it All Together Once all slides have been created, youre ready to put it all together. On the bottom, left corner of the PowerPoint window, there are different views: Normal, Outline, Slide, Slide Sorter and Slideshow. Choose Slide Sorter View. Go to Edit, Select All to highlight all slides. Go to View, Formatting Palette. Outline View Slide View Slide Sorter View Slide Show Slide Sorter View

22 View Your Slideshow Select Slideshow View from the bottom, left corner of your project window. Click the mouse to view the slideshow. To exit Slideshow View, press Escape. As you view your slideshow, practice speaking like you would in front of an audience. Look for mistakes and ways to improve each slide. Go to Normal View to make changes as needed. Next up, a sample slideshow on INTEGERS by Mr. Imamura! Normal – Slide Sorter – Slide Show

23 INTEGERS By: Mr. Imamura Math Period Current Date MA – Describe and solve situations represented by integers and absolute values.

24 DEFINITION INTEGER A number in the set of positive and negative whole numbers as well as zero {-2, -1, 0, 1, 2} POSITIVE NUMBER (natural number) Any integer greater than zero {1, 2, 3, 4} NEGATIVE NUMBER Any integer less than zero {-4, -3, -2, -1}

25 GENERAL RULES Addition –If similar signs, add and use the same sign. –If different signs, find the difference of the two values and use the sign of the larger value. Similar = 7, = -7 Different3 + (-4) = -1, = +1 Subtraction –Add the opposite of the second number. –Then follow the rules of addition above. 3 – 4 = change it to 3 + (-4) = -1 3 – (-4) = change it to 3 + (+4) = +7

26 GENERAL RULES (continued) Multiplication and Division Table below applies to both operations. Positive (x or ÷) Positive = Positive 6 x 3 = 18, 6 ÷ 3 = 2 Positive (x or ÷) Negative = Negative 6 x (-3) = -186 ÷ (-3) = -2 Negative (x or ÷) Positive = Negative -6 x 3 = ÷ 3 = -2 Negative (x or ÷) Negative = Positive - 6 x (-3) = 18-6 ÷ -3 = 2

27 QUESTION #1 UH started a play on their own 35 yard line but were pushed back 5 yards. On what yard line are they now? 35 + (-5) = 30 yard line Started from Lost on playCurrently at

28 QUESTION #2 #2. Last week John had $0 when he borrowed $50 from his parents. This week John borrowed an additional $35. Right now how much money does John have? -$50 - $35 = change to below -$50 - $35 = change to below -$50 + (-$35) = -$85 dollars -$50 + (-$35) = -$85 dollars Week 1 Week 2 $ owed for both weeks Week 1 Week 2 $ owed for both weeks
