1 Excel Spreadsheets Excel is software that lets you create tables, and calculate and analyze data. This type of software is called spreadsheet software. Excel lets you create tables that automatically calculate the totals of numerical values you input, print out tables in neat layouts, and create simple graphs.

2 Spreadsheets A Row is a group of cells that run horizontally. Rows are numerically labeled A Column is a group of cells that run vertically. Columns are alphabetically labeled. Cells are the intersection of a Row and Column Cells are identified by first stating the intersecting column letter followed by the intersecting Row number For example, B2 is an example of a cell address

3 Excel Spreadsheet Spreadsheets consist of columns (vertical) and rows (horizontal) ABCD 1 2 3 4 ROW (Horizontal) COLUMN (vertical) The intersection of a row and column is called a CELL Letters indicate COLUMNS and Numbers indicate ROWS

4 Excel CHARTS Charts are used to present information so that it can be quickly and easily understood Bar and Column Charts -Show values of data and allow comparison between categories Pie Charts -Show values of data and allow comparison to the whole -The area of each slice represents the fraction of the whole Line Charts -Show the relationship between values -They can be used to show the rate of change
