This Week in Computers!

This week saw our photo projects completed. They are AWESOME!! Additionally, at week's end, our spreadsheets took form. We will be using 2 spreadsheets, which are part of the same workbook, to keep track of our earnings and expenses while we are traveling. Most of our students got their first taste of the power of a spreadsheet. There were many amazed faces as we entered various formulas to allow us to, easily, keep track of our money throughout the roadtrip. Some of the vocabulary we encountered and learned/reviewed: cell, workbook, column, row, menu, sigma, sum, format, currency, "in the red", and "in the black".
