Becoming Excel Experts…

Mr Ogilvie led our computing session today. We started off by playing bingo on Microsoft Excel to revise the formatting tools. We are becoming a lot more confident with this and now use topic vocabulary more accurately including: cell, formula and autosum. 

We were then set the challenge of planning a party. To begin we thought of five things to buy before researching how much these cost on the internet. After doing this, we were able to input the relevant information including the cost onto an Excel document. We used our prior knowledge of Excel to calculate the total amount using ‘autosum’ which saved us from working it out ourselves. How clever Excel is!
