Exercise 1

Open Microsoft Word.

  • Set the paper to landscape orientation.
  • Divide the page into three columns of equal size.
  • Using 14 point font and double space, enter enough text to fill all 3 columns.
  • Include your name randomly twice in the document.
  • Include the date at the end of the last paragraph.
  • Using 28 point font, add a title to your document in the header section.
  • Add clip art of your choosing in each of the three columns.
  • Make the longer side of each picture about .75 inches.
  • Be sure the text goes around the art on at least one side.
  • Insert a clip art image into the header with your title.
  • Resize the picture to be 1" on the longer side.
  • Insert your name into the header.

Save the Word document as 'hw5.docx' in the 'Word Document' format (it should be default). Send hw5.docx as an email attachment to your TA.

In the subject line for your email, include the assignment number, your name and the last 3 digits of your RunnerID in this form:

Homework 5, 123, Samantha Spade

(Replace Samantha Spade with your name and 123 with the last three digits of your student ID). The subject line must be exactly in this format (including capital letters and commas) in order for my grading script to download your assignment correctly, so please follow these instructions carefully.

Errors in your homework grade must be worked out with your TA within one week of grades being posted. You will be asked to show the assignment in the sent email box with the attachment to the TA as proof that you submitted your work on time.

Remove your USB drive and take the drive with you when you leave. This should be the last action when you leave the lab every time. The lab computers are wiped clean every night and all data stored on them is deleted. USB drives left plugged into the computer usually find a new owner.
