PowerPoint basics:3. Layout 1. No more than two lines each text. 2. No more than 7 lines per slide. 3. No more than 7 words in the line
PowerPoint basics:3. LayoutThe reason for limiting text blocks to two lines is thatwhen the text block goes on and on forever, people inthe audience are going to have to make a huge effortto read the text, which will preclude them from payingattention to what you are saying. Every time you losetheir focus, your presentation suffers!
PowerPoint basics:3. Layout Complicated slides to be understood Human Sperm-Oocyte Interaction Figure 3. Stages of human fertilization. Spermatozoa swim through the surrounding medium and cumulus mass (not shown) and bind to the surface of the zona pellucida. The acrosome reaction is stimulated by zona proteins and the acrosome reacted sperm penetrates the zona, enters the perivitelline space and binds to the oolemma via the equatorial segment. Oocyte processes surround the sperm head and it enters the ooplasm and decondenses. Infertility could result from defects of any of these processes. For example, abnormal sperm particularly with defective head morphology bind poorly to the zona.
