Beginning MS Excel for PCs   

Do you think spreadsheets are for accountants? We will de-mystify Excel spreadsheets and show how they can be used to plan and organize activities, keep track of expenses, and do simple analyses. The course will start with the basics, including an introduction to the Excel window and options in the Excel ribbon, creating and navigating spreadsheets, and saving workbooks. Students will learn techniques for entering and formatting numerical and alphabetic data, editing and moving data within spreadsheets and workbooks, and manipulating page layouts. Other topics include using basic arithmetic operations, analyzing data with simple functions such as SUM and AVERAGE, and the use of simple IF statements. This is a course for beginners, and students are not expected to have experience using Excel for PCs. This is a hands-on course. Students must bring their laptops to class to work on in-class exercises. Students who have taken the course before are welcome. NOTE: Students must have Excel for PCs (version 2013 or later) loaded on their laptop computers, PCs only. The instructor will email files to students with exercises to use during class and to practice techniques at home. Before each class, students must download the files from emails and save them on their laptops to use in class.
