1. Terminology and Basic Navigation of the Excel Program
The Excel Worksheet
Terminology 
 Worksheet: a row and column matrix sheet on which you work.
 Spreadsheet: this type of computer application.
 Workbook: the book of pages that is the standard Excel document.
 Cell: the workbook is made up of cells. There is a cell at the intersection of each row and column. A cell can contain a value, a formula, or a text entry.
 Rows, Columns, and Sheets: The Excel worksheet contains 16,384 rows that extend down the worksheet, numbers 1 through 16384. The worksheet contains 256 columns that extend across the worksheet, lettered A through Z, AA through AZ, BA through BZ, and continuing IA through IZ. The Excel workbook can contain as many as 256 sheets, labeled Sheet 1 through Sheet 256. The initial number of sheets in a workbook, which can be changed by the user, is 16.
 Cell references: Cell references are the combination of column letter and row number. For example, the upperleft cell of a worksheet is A1.
Entering Data into a Spreadsheet1. In cell A1, type Keyboarding – 4th Period Grades
2. Type as follows:
4. Type in cells: B3 – 90; C3 – 75; and D3  95 5. Type in cells: B4 – 75; C4 – 80; and D4 – 75 6. Type in cells: B5 – 90; C5 – 85; and D5 – 85 7. Type in cell A6 – Average 
Changing Cell Size1. Point with your mouse between the A and B columns. When the cursor changes to a line crossed by a double sided arrow, click and drag the column to the right. This will make the A column wider.
2. Point with your mouse between the B and C columns. When the cursor changes to a line crossed by a double sided arrow, quickly double click the left mouse button. Notice that the column automatically adjusts to fit the text. 3. Adjust the width of all columns through E.

2. Formulas
A formula is an expression telling the computer what mathematical operation to perform upon a specific value. When referring to computer software, formulas are most often used in spreadsheet programs, such as Microsoft Excel. Using formulas in spreadsheets can allow you to quickly make calculations and get totals of multiple cells, rows, or columns in a spreadsheet.
Copying Formula to Other Cells
1. Point to the right bottom of cell E3 until you get the plus sign.
2. When you get the plus sign, click and hold down the left mouse button. 3. Drag through cell E5 4. Excel will automatically fill in averages for Cells E4 and E5. 5. Now use the same method as above to find the average for Test 1, this will be in Cell C6. Use the drag method to calculate the averages for Tests 2, Test 3, and Average.
