  • Functions are predefined tasks; users cannot change them. Formulas often include functions, but all the logic is supplied by the user. The fewer constants a formula or function contains, the more flexibility the worksheet will have. Emphasize using worksheets as a general problem solving tool, rather than using them to solve a problem with a specific set of data.
  • If you give tests that require students to save a file to a diskette, spend a lot of time on this command. It will save you from having to retrieve someone’s test from a folder in your computer lab. The Save As command is used to save a file either: On a different folder (drive) With a different file name With a different file type
  • Students will often press the Delete key. Pressing that key performs the Clear command, which removes the contents of the cell, but does not delete the cell from the worksheet. It is the best choice to simply erase data from a cell. Students need to check formulas after using either the Insert and Delete commands to ensure the formulas don’t rely on a cell that was deleted.
  • If students set margins, then change orientation, they need to review the margin settings.
  • These two tabs are very useful for printing large worksheets. If rows are too wide to print on one page, set up the row(s) containing the descriptive row labels to print on each page. If there are too many rows to print on one page vertically, set up the column(s) containing the descriptive column heading labels to print on each page. Headers and footers print at the top and bottom, respectively, of each printed page. Printing file names and directories, page numbers, and dates printed can be very helpful tools, especially with large worksheets.
  • Printing the date and time on the worksheet is a good habit to get into. Often, a worksheet will be printed many times by many different users. Having the date and time in the header or footer helps identify the most current version of the worksheet.
  • Students will often press the Delete key. Pressing that key performs the Clear command, which removes the contents of the cell, but does not delete the cell from the worksheet. It is the best choice to simply erase data from a cell. Students need to check formulas after using either the Insert and Delete commands to ensure the formulas don’t rely on a cell that was deleted.
  • Press the Ctrl key and the ~ to toggle between displaying cell values and formulas. Printing a sheet that displays the formulas and storing it in a safe location can help rebuild the worksheet, should it ever be lost or corrupted. It also provides a frame of reference, should modifications be needed in the future. As often as most businesses install new computers and servers, worksheet files are lost all the time.
  • We work on a desktop with either a 21” monitor or a very high-resolution LCD display and are often lulled into a false sense of security about how much data will appear. Before printing a worksheet, users should use the Print Preview command. It saves lots of paper and many trips to the printer.
  • Demonstrate how to use the Ctrl key to select a non-contiguous block of cells. Demonstrate how to use the Shift key to quickly select a large block of cells. Consider showing students the AutoFormat command. It supplies built-in formats for professional looking spreadsheets. It is useful to use on its own, or can be tweaked and customized.

    24. 24. Page Setup <ul><li>We work on a desktop with either a 21” monitor or a very high-resolution LCD display and are often lulled into a false sense of security about how much data will appear. Before printing a worksheet, users should use the Print Preview command. It saves lots of paper and many trips to the printer. </li></ul>

    26. 26. Assignment 1 <ul><li>Title of Exercise: Modifying a Worksheet </li></ul><ul><li>Objective: to open an existing workbook; rename all the worksheets , Place a header with name, section and assignment #, to insert and delete rows and columns; to print cell formulas and displayed values; to use the Page Setup command </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Input File: Grade Book Solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Output File: Grade Book Solution </li></ul></ul>
    27. 27. Using Cell Ranges <ul><li>Range – a rectangular group of cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May be a single cell or the entire worksheet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>May consist of a row (or part of a row), a column (or part of a column) or multiple rows and/or columns </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To select a range: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Click left mouse button at the beginning of the range </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hold left mouse button as you drag the mouse </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Release left mouse button at the end of the range </li></ul></ul>
    28. 28. Copying and Moving Cells <ul><li>Copy command – duplicates the contents of a cell or range of cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Source range – the cell(s) you are copying from </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Destination range – the cell(s) you are copying to </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You can copy to more than one destination ranges </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Move operation – transfers the contents of a cell or range to another cell or range </li></ul><ul><li>You must use both the Copy (or Cut) command and the Paste command </li></ul>
    29. 29. Cell Referencing <ul><li>Absolute reference: remains constant when copied </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Specified with dollar signs before the column and row </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Relative reference: adjusts during a copy operation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Specified without dollar signs, i.e. B4 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mixed reference: either the row or the column is absolute; the other is relative </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Specified with a dollar sign before the absolute part of the reference, i.e. B$4 </li></ul></ul>
    30. 30. Absolute and Relative References Absolute references are used to refer to the weight of each exam. These weights do not change for each student, so absolute references are needed to keep those references constant as the formula is copied Relative references are used to refer to each student’s exam scores. These scores do change for each student, so relative references are needed to make sure each student’s average reflects his/her scores
    31. 31. Compute the Student Semester Averages Absolute and relative references used in formulas Create the formula in cell E4 and copy to other cells
    32. 32. Isolating the Assumptions Enter new exam weights in row 13 New student averages are automatically recalculated
    33. 33. Isolating the Assumptions <ul><li>Assumptions (the exam weights) are isolated physically from the formulas. All formulas refer to the cells containing the exam weights (the assumptions), not the values of those weights. </li></ul><ul><li>Building formulas in this way makes the worksheet more flexible and easier to use. If formulas referred to the exam weights, rather than the cells containing the weights, and you wanted to change the weights, you would have to change the formula. </li></ul>
    34. 34. Formatting Cells <ul><li>Format Cells command – controls the formatting for numbers, alignment, fonts, borders, and patterns (color) </li></ul><ul><li>Select-then-do </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Select the cells to which the formatting will apply </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Execute the Format Cells command </li></ul></ul>
    35. 35. The Format Cells Command Number tab allows you to specify appearance of numbers Alignment tab specifies vertical and horizontal alignment Font tab allows you to specify font type and size Borders and Patterns tabs allow you to create special effects
    36. 36. Formatting Cells <ul><li>One of the most important formatting decisions is the number of decimal places numbers should have. </li></ul><ul><li>If a column contains any mixed numbers, all numbers in that column should contain the same number of decimal places. </li></ul><ul><li>Numbers are right-aligned by default and should remain that way, so that decimal places line up. </li></ul>
    37. 37. Formatting Cells <ul><li>If the column is wide, change the alignment of the text label for that column to right; otherwise, when the worksheet is printed, the text label won’t look like it belongs to that column of numbers. </li></ul>
    38. 38. The Completed Worksheet Shading is used to identify labels and assumptions, and to show class averages. For shading, stick to light colors, such as yellow or light blue, and use a bold typeface
    39. 39. Assignment 2 <ul><li>Title of Exercise: Formatting a Worksheet </li></ul><ul><li>Objective: to format a worksheet using boldface, italics, shading, and borders; to change the font and/or alignment of a selected entry. Remember name, section, assignment number in header! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Input file: Better Grade Book </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Output file: Better Grade Book </li></ul></ul>
