Additional Resources for Students

WPS office Free 2016

The new school year is begining! By using our “back to school” series as a guide, students and educators should have everything they need to ensure that kids get off to a smooth start.
As summer comes to a close and we prepare to wrap up our series, we wanted to share some additional software and online resources that you can guide your students toward at any time during the school year in relation to particular classes, as well as to supplement their classroom education:

Grammar and Language

English teachers can recommend that their students use the free Writer application from WPS Office as a tool to help them create essays and written assignments. If students are allowed to use laptops in your class, they can use Writer for easy note taking, which can help them capture the highlights from your lectures. Students can also use Writer to craft their research papers. The Writer app comes equipped with a spellchecker, which can help improve the quality of students’ work and ensure that their notes and essays remain error-free. Additionally, students can switch the spellcheck dictionaries used for different languages by choosing the “Set Language” option in the “Check Spelling” drop-down list. A dialogue box will open that shows “Available Languages,” and the student can click on the desired language.

Math and Economics

Mathematics and economics instructors can guide their students toward Spreadsheets to assist them with a wide range of problem solving. The app offers hundreds of commonly used formulas and functions organized by category, which can help students analyze various types of complex data sets. Spreadsheets also comes with advanced pivot tables, which allow students to easily analyze and summarize large amounts of data. The application additionally supports advanced modeling/what-if analysis functions including Goal Seek and Solver. When students use these tools, it helps them with forecasting and finding solutions for data-driven problems. Mathematics and economics students will also appreciate the ability to use customizable charts (like line, column, pie, bar, scatter, and more) and built-in table styles to organize and present their data in an organized fashion.

Arts and Sciences

While students in any class can benefit from the ability to create an impressive presentation, students in the visual arts and sciences may find this ability particularly useful. The Presentation app from WPS Office can help creative students showcase their ideas directly through the app or using PowerPoint files. Students can enhance their own creativity using the app’s formatting tools, WordArt text effects, extensive font library, and advanced animation capabilities. The program supports slide transitions, video, audio, and flash.
