Excel Tutorials

         Use one or more of the many Excel tutorial to guide you through the creation of your spreadsheet. Using your Internet browser, go to and then type “Excel tutorial” into the search line. This is the instructor’s choice: It is comprehensive but quite “wordy,” so if you are more of a visual learner you may prefer one of the other many options.


    5.  Funding. How might a teacher or coach go about funding the purchase and maintenance of the technology?
    6.  How is the technology used? Provide detailed, step-by-step, instructions for its use in your setting. Write so that a new teacher or coach could implement its use by following the instructions.
