Excel Quickie Assignment #1

This is the first of my quickie assignments, which are meant to be short but very useful for teaching and reviewing valuable Excel skills. These assignments do not include step-by-step instructions. They are meant to be used as formative assessment or possibly as material for walking students through how to complete tasks.

Remember that there are other, much more advanced skills that could be taught with this simple dataset, so think about ways you can rework the instructions to better target whatever skill you are trying to teach.

Introduction to Excel – Video 1

In this video, we will be creating a  basic, unstyled spreadsheet for So Sweet Lemonade Stand. We will discuss formatting and making the spreadsheet pretty in the second video of the series. You can grab the starter file here if you don’t want to type in the raw data. (I hope you start from scratch because you get better at inputting data through repetition!)
