© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 “What if?” ● The biggest advantage a spreadsheet has is the ability to ask the “what if?” questions (and get a quick answer). ● Be very, very lazy (in the long run): – Use equations to compute answers as much as possible. – “What if” questions answered by tweaking the data. 6
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 7 Spreadsheet Cells ● Worksheets are 2-dimensional arrays of cells. ● Each cell is referred to by its cell reference. – Examples: A1, E10, AZ1024 ● Cells can be grouped as a range. – Examples: A1:E10, C5:Q8
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 8 Spreadsheet Values ● Constants/literals – A number – A text label ● Formulas (always begins with an = ) – Numbers – Arithmetic ( +, -, *, / ) – Functions ● Worksheet contents are updated in real time.
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 Be Very, Very Lazy ● This usually means doing some work up front. – Can easily ask “what if?” – Compute correct answers. ● Guidelines – No numbers in formulas. – sum() and average() should refer to ranges. 9
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 10 Relative/Absolute Addressing ● When cells are copied: – relative addresses are modified automatically – absolute addresses always refer to the same cell ● Syntax: – Relative address: A1 – Absolute address: $A$1 ● Use the F4 key!!

© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 14 Technology and Humanity ● Working with technology can be dehumanizing. ● “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.” - Genesis 1:28 What’s the Big Idea
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 15 Graphs and Charts ● Quantitative data can frequently be illustrated in a compelling way using charts and graphs. ● Spreadsheet systems usually provide graphing and charting capabilities. ● Here are some examples.

© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 20 Graph/Chart Issues ● Data values can, however, be obscured or misrepresented using charts. ● Here are some examples.

© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 26 Lying graphics cheapen the graphical art everywhere … When a chart on television lies, it lies millions of times over; when a New York Times chart lies, it lies 900,000 times over to a great many important and influential readers.

© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 31 Using Charts/Graphs Properly ● Decide what you want to present. ● Present it accurately and unambiguously. – Let the graphic values/change accurately depict the data values/change. – Clearly label all relevant details. – Don’t graphically mix dissimilar elements. – Use the right type of graph. – Don’t add “chartjunk”.
© Keith Vander Linden, 2005 32 Technology and Lying ● It is as easy to lie or mislead with technology. ● “When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” - John 8:44 What’s the Big Idea
