The following Microsoft Word features are required on the final version of the problem-solving paper, and on any extra-credit papers you write for this class.
- Heading styles (needed for table of contents):
Note that the "Heading 1" style should be used for headings of main sections and "Heading 2" style is used for headings of subsections. Your papers will probably be too short to need more than one level of headings. Use only "Heading 1" for your section headings.
Do NOT use a heading style for the title of your entire paper itself. Heading styles are for section headings. Use the "Title" style for the title of your paper.
