PowerPoint is a application used for the creation of presentations. These presentations are laid out in a "storyboard" type fashion, where individual slides are created and formatted with text and images. PowerPoint presentations are widely used in classrooms as note outlines for teachers, and for project presentations by students.
The point of the slides in PowerPoint presentations is NOT to fit as much detailed information as you can onto a single slide. Rather, each slide should contain elements that briefly sum up the major idea(s) of what you will be presenting for the duration of the slide.
The style in which you create slides is completely up to you. PowerPoint allows you to choose from a wide variety of formats that include sections such as titles, lists, images, or charts. Any of these can be incorporated into your presentation. The main thing to keep in mind, however, is that an audience will be viewing this material; it must be large enough to read, yet not so large that it takes up far too much of the screen to include relevant information.
