Educational Features

Making the tools of Office meet the needs of students
Sometimes the hardest part about doing homework is getting started. Learning Essentials for Students provides assignment-specific guidance in Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. With curriculum-based templates, tools, and tutorials, Learning Essentials helps with a variety of subjects and assignments, from history reports and essays to physics projects and chemistry labs.

  • Getting past the blank page:  The easy-to-use and intuitive tools, templates, and tutorials in Learning Essentials help students get past formatting questions and puts them into the core of the assignment to create high-quality reports, presentations, science projects, and other assignments more easily. Developed in cooperation with well-regarded academic publishers like Pearson Prentice Hall, SchoolKiT, and Great Source Houghton Mifflin Co., Learning Essentials even offers tips, tricks, and tutorials for managing homework projects and developing study aids. 
  • Writing in Spanish, French, and German?  Microsoft Student 2006 unlocks tools in Microsoft Office specially designed for foreign language assignments, providing templates for writing in Spanish, French, and German. Once a template is launched, the student will have tools available specifically for writing in that language, such as letters with appropriate accents and spell checking with suggested correct spellings.
  • Putting together a polished package:  Learning Essentials help students create accurate and compelling work—even in math and science. Guidelines and templates for Microsoft PowerPoint make for sharp analytical presentations, and templates for Microsoft Excel improve critical thinking on physics and chemistry assignments.

Fully functional Graphing Calculator Software - easy to use!

  • Microsoft Student 2006 comes with an invaluable tool for math and science homework: powerful, easy-to-use Graphing Calculator software, the perfect complement to the handheld calculators typically required in middle and high school.
  • A full-color display with 2-D and 3-D charting capabilities helps students visualize difficult problems in trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, and physics classes, and students can enter problems just as they appear in their textbooks. The ability to view, rotate, and animate large, colorful graphs makes understanding difficult concepts and problem-solving in advanced math and science courses significantly easier. Students can also save their work—to finish later, add to Word or PowerPoint documents, or share with study groups.
  • Customizable, interchangeable Calculator Skins let students personalize the Graphing Calculator and express their individual style.
