Introduction to Spreadsheet Programs
* Lesson 4 - INTRODUCTION TO SPREADSHEET PROGRAMS LESSON
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES  Introduction to
[Introduction to Spreadsheet Programs]
Suppose you have to calculate the expenses of an entire month. You note
the expenses for each day and calculate the total expenses for the month.
You use a calculator to do the calculation, or you can manually add the
figures. After you finish the calculation, you realize that some of the
data that you used in the calculation was wrong. Now, all your time and
effort is wasted, and you have to do the entire calculation again.
If you use a spreadsheet, you can avoid these types of calculation
problems, and save time and effort. A spreadsheet is a table in which you
can store and organize data, and also perform numeric calculations. This
makes your work easier because there is no need to perform calculations
manually or with a calculator. It is easy to modify the data in a
spreadsheet. When you modify the data used in a calculation, the result of
the calculation is modified automatically. Therefore, you do not have to
spend time or effort in recalculation.
In this lesson, you will learn about the components of a spreadsheet and
how to store data in it. You will also learn to perform basic mathematical
tasks, and create charts and graphs in a spreadsheet. In addition, you will
learn about the various options available for printing a spreadsheet.Lesson
After completing this lesson, you will be able to:
Identify the components of a spreadsheet.
Enter data into a spreadsheet.
Perform basic mathematical tasks in a spreadsheet.
Insert charts in a spreadsheet.
Print a spreadsheet.
