In this unit you will look at what a spreadsheet is and why it is a useful tool when working with numeric data. You will be able to design simple formulae and use some of the tools in Microsoft Excel such as AutoFill. You will be able to format numeric data in a manner that is useful for your intended audience. You will be able to produce and customise graphs. You will be able to use conditional formatting to highlight actions that need to be taken. You will also see how a spreadsheet package can be used to produce a simple mailing list that can be used by a word processing package to create a “mail merge”.
