An introduction to spreadsheets

Date: 7th Sep 2021 @ 4:01pm

Today we began our new unit in Computing - Spreadsheets. We discussed what a spreadsheet is and why people use them. We were also introduced at the following key vocabulary that we will be using through the unit:

  • Data
  • Cell
  • Input
  • Output
  • Format

Our task today was to first have a practise at inputting simple data into cells and then add borders, changing text colour and adding colour to cells. We were then taught how to add add formula to cells in order to add, subtract, multiply and divide inputted numerical data.
