This group covered this topic, from a different angle, a couple of
weeks ago.  See my message of 24th July.  Then ditch your professor.

But seriously, Word is truly appalling when it comes to including
vector graphic formats, but you can probably make things a little
better by ensuring that all the fonts your graphics use are standard
Windows fonts.

You might even want to experiment with bitmaps (GIFs etc); if you do,
make sure that you set the image dimensions in Mathematica before
exporting and importing and do not resize them.

Enjoy yourself
