How to Use Excel

Initial Publication Date: December 21, 2006

Microsoft Excel is easy to use and has very many features so the more you use it the more you learn. The Excel spreadsheet has great documentation through the built-in help menu.

We also have a collection of Example Excel Activities that show how Excel can be used in class. There are introductory activities that focus more on the mechanics of using Excel in science context as well as more advanced activities which assume more knowledge of Excel and use it as a tool to explore more in-depth concepts.
