Sometimes the 17 180 917 760 cells in Excel that sit waiting for you to organize, calculate, chart, graph and/or display are a little intimidating. True – Excel has a lot of features that seem a mystery and terms that are new.
But instead of focussing on Excel, think about what you want to accomplish. Maybe you’d like to create a class register or a markbook..and then start filling in the cells in Excel with the appropriate data. Or maybe you might just want to play, and draw icons in Excel or predict the amount of smartie colours in a Smartie pack. Or, the really diligent, might read through the spreadsheet notes.
