Introduction to PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint, part of Microsoft Office, creates and plays presentations. A presentation is something a speaker makes to an audience, typically using a computer and LCD projector to display material in a lecture hall or auditorium. PowerPoint works a lot like Microsoft Word, and the assumption here is that you are familiar with Word. A PowerPoint presentation is made up of "slides" that are individual frames or screens of information. To create a presentation, create the slides. A PowerPoint file (*.ppt) is a collection of slides, typically for one and only one presentation, although files can be linked together to make up compound presentations. PowerPoint has functions for

Creating and inserting new slides. Editing existing slides. Reordering existing slides.

Slides can contain

Text Tables Bulleted and numbered lists Graphics Audio Video Many other types of content.

Content can be modified by

Formatting, including standard fonts, sizes and other attributes, and background colors and images. Reducing, enlarging, cropping pictures, and superimposing drawing. Animation schemes, such as having each bulleted point appear one at a time. Many master templates, which are patterns for colors, bullets, text sizes and background images.

A Basic Introduction to MS Word

Microsoft WORD is a powerful word processing program that gives a professional result. This tutorial will give you the basics on how to use MS WORD. Please note, that with all MS programs, there are many alternate ways on how to open and manipulate files. To Open MS Word - On the Desktop - Click on START, PROGRAMS, and select Microsoft WORD in the side menu To Start a NEW Docment - look at the gray toolbar below the dark blue border - click on FILE, SELECT NEW. A panel may or may not open on the right side, Select BLANK DOCUMENT from the menu by clicking on it. 1.Introduction to Microsoft Word Setting up project gallery toolbars formatting palette opening saving Writing and formatting margins layout headers and footers text color basic formatting special characters Fun stuff word art clip art

Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet application developed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. It has been a very widely applied spreadsheet for these platforms, especially since version 5 in 1993, and it has replaced Lotus 1-2-3 as the industry standard for spreadsheets. Excel forms part of Microsoft Office. Microsoft Excel has the basic features of all spreadsheets, using a grid of cells arranged in numbered rows and letter-named columns to organize data manipulations like arithmetic operations. It has a battery of supplied functions to answer statistical, engineering and financial needs. In addition, it can display data as line graphs, histograms and charts, and with a very limited threedimensional graphical display. It allows sectioning of data to view its dependencies on various factors for different perspectives (using pivot tables and the scenario manager). It has a programming aspect, Visual Basic for Applications, allowing the user to employ a wide variety of numerical methods, for example, for solving differential equations of mathematical physics, and then reporting the results back to the spreadsheet. It also has a variety of interactive features allowing user interfaces that can completely hide the spreadsheet from the user, so the spreadsheet presents itself as a so-called application, or decision support system (DSS), via a custom-designed user interface, for example, a stock analyzer,or in general, as a design tool that asks the user questions and provides answers and reports. In a more elaborate realization, an Excel application can automatically poll external databases and measuring instruments using an update schedule, analyze the results, make a Word report or Power Point slide show, and e-mail these presentations on a regular basis to a list of participants.

About these HTML pages

HTML HTML stands for hypertext mark up language and it is used used by the World Wide Web. The WWW runs on the internet which is an international network of computers which communicate information with each other in a standardised way. It does not matter what type of computer you are using to access the information so long as both systems conform to a standard language for transmitting the text and data. You may be familiar with Hypertext applications running on desktop computers. Unlike a conventional page description language, HTML does not define how the text is to appear. Instead, parts of the text are marked as having certain attributes, such as being a title or a heading. The actual appearance of these styles is set by the viewing program to give consistency between all documents. You would be surprised at how easy it is to set up a document like this! Members of staff who would like to contribute are encouraged to contact us. If you have documents and pictures already in a computer readable form then it may be fairly easy to edit them and link them into this system. Creating these HTML pages I have access to and use many different computer systems for my work, including UNIX (Silicon Graphics, Sun & DEC), Apples and Acorns. As such I have formed my own opinions on the merits and limitations of each system. However as these documents show the world of computers is starting to develop a common language for communication of data and you may be accessing this server from almost any type of computer. Most of my own work is carried out using Acorn computers and these pages have been edited and set up using a combination of Computer Concepts "Impression Publisher" DTP software with Ben Summers' "html loaders and savers" as well as R-Comp's HTMLEdit. Drawings have been produced using Acorn's "!Draw" and Computer Concepts "Artworks". Molecular modelling is carried out using a Silicon Graphics "Iris Indigo" workstation running Molecular Simulations "Quanta, Charmm and Modeler" packages and the images generated are again processed on an Acorn "RiscPC600" using Spacetech's "Photodesk" imaging and photo retouching package. The resulting pages were then previewed on the RiscPC or an A5000 using either the freeware package ArcWeb by Stewart Brodie or the excellent Fresco from ANT Ltd .
