From efficient data logging to simple office applications, virtually all aspects of academic study or research are reliant on computers. As part of the requirements to use software for data recording and interpretation, KBS has developed this resource to enable students to reach an acceptable skill level in spreadsheet applications. The visual display of data and its varying interpretation is an essential and often neglected part of the research process. Spreadsheets and Charts - A Student's Guide to Displaying Data
is a teacher reproducible resource ideal for raising the overall standard and quality of database and spreadsheet work.
Topics covered include:
- What is a spreadsheet?
- The Microsoft Excel screen.
- Creating and formatting a workbook.
- Creating charts and graphs.
- Multiple data series.
- Linking and embedding.
- Spelling and grammar.
A sample assignment can be developed via the exercises contained in the book giving the students a chance to practise their newly learnt skills.
