Course Description:

Students will learn how to utilize spreadsheets in Excel or Google Sheets to organize data and verbal information, compute values, and create graphics and charts, while pursuing their own interests and motivations.

Students will select a target project through which to develop their skills. Example projects include a budget for personal finances, a priority-driven schedule with embedded ways to track our progress towards our goals over time, and a simple to do list with metrics.

As students develop their confidence with the various functions of these spreadsheets, we can dive into a more advanced project, such as a valuation of a financial proposition or enterprise; creation of pivot tables, import data and run regressions; building and managing a Fantasy Football roster; or planning out a vacation.

Whatever our project, students will walk away with this course able to effectively use the varied and powerful tools spreadsheets offer.
