QUESTION: d. Do you think learning to programme a computer is a skill worth having? Justify your response.

QUESTION: e. If you were to draw a circle and then realise it was just too big, how would you change the 2 commands in KTurtle? Would this be a relatively easy task? Justify your response.
ANSWER: e. In KTurtle, a full circle is drawn with 360 degrees. A circle can be drawn using the repeat command, i.e. repeat 360 times. For example, repeat 360 (fw 1 tr 1) It is relatively simple to reduce the size of this circle; we will increase the number of steps in the fw command and the number of degrees in the tr command. This will reduce the number of repetitions and therefore, reduce the size of the circle.

QUESTION: d. List the steps you will take to correct a misspelled word ’freind’ which recurs throughout a passage written in MS Word. Do you think it is right to use spell checkers all the time? Have spell checkers made us a bit lazy?
ANSWER: d. To correct a misspelled word ‘freind’ which recurs throughout a passage written in MS Word, the Spelling & Grammar tool is used. It allows the spellings of words to be checked either as an entire document or as a part of the document. The steps are as follows: • Select the word ‘freind’. • Click the Review tab. • Click the Spelling & Grammar button In the Proofing group. • The Spelling task pane appears on the right side of the document window with the correct spelling suggestion. • Click on the option Change All. It is not always correct to use spell checkers. For example, both ‘stationery’ and ‘stationary’ are different words with different meanings. The spell checker will not know which spelling should be used in the context of that sentence. In this case, the spell checker may not pick the correct spelling.
QUESTION: e. Is there an advantage in using a numbered list rather than a bulleted list? Give reasons for your response.
ANSWER: e. There is an advantage to use a numbered list when the order of items is important, for example, a sequence of events or steps. A bullet list is used when the order of items is not of any significance. For example, when writing out a recipe there is a distinct advantage for having a numbered list so the method is in proper order.

They would also require a computer, projector, screen, and electricity to create a slideshow but if they do not have access to all this, there would not be a presentation. Also, the success of the presentation depends entirely on the proper functioning of technology. If the file is lost or accidentally deleted, there would be no slideshow to view.

CHAPTER#10  Text in PowerPoint 2013 P: 124-132


1. a. iv. all of these b. i. HOME c. i. Paragraph d. iii. Capitalize e Each Word e. i. Dot

ANSWER: c. It is important to go beyond the basics so students learn how to use different options and add details so as to create an effective presentation. This chapter teaches how to present and format slides so they are visually attractive.
QUESTION: d. Changing details of the text within a PowerPoint, such as changing the case structure of words or changing alignment can seem to be very fiddly and time consuming. What impact, if any, do you think your attention to detail can have on the audience who view your finished slide show? Justify your reasoning.
ANSWER: d. The case structure may be changed for the following reasons: • To capitalize the first letter of a sentence and leave all other letters as lowercase, Sentence case is used. • To exclude capital letters from the text, lowercase is used. • To capitalize all the letters, UPPERCASE is to be used. • To capitalize the first letter of each word and leave the other letters lowercase, Capitalize Each Word is used. Each of us may have different requirements for the slide show and may use different case structure accordingly. Alignment determines the appearance and orientation of the edges of the paragraph: how the text is aligned. It is very important to format the text so that the key message to be imparted stands out in an attractive and efficient manner.
QUESTION: e. When a PowerPoint has a spelling error in its final slide show, the mistake is often glaringly obvious when shown on a big screen. Has the spelling tool replaced the need for a dictionary? ls a dictionary more than a spelling guide? What do you think?
ANSWER: e. The spelling tool is a very valuable tool but it may not be a correct indicator all the time. For example, both the words ‘sea’ and ‘see’ are correctly spelt. The spelling tool will not know which spelling should be used in the context of that sentence. Hence, along with the spelling tool, a dictionary should also be used, to check more difficult spellings in the correct context.
