Review quote

"This book provides the classroom teacher with concrete examples and step-by-step instructions for meaningfully infusing the use of spreadsheets into the curriculum. The text provides instruction for both a Windows platform and a Macintosh platform. The book is divided into three parts. Part one is a review of computer basics using dialog boxes, file management, key commands, and text selection. Reproducible activities are provided for each of these areas. Part two begins with introductory lessons on spreadsheet basics and has 35 easy to implement reproducible activities. The activities start with simple tasks and progress to more complex ones. Some of the concepts and skills students will learn are how to collect and compare statistics, calculate area, create grids, create temperature spreadsheets, design budgets, and make reading graphs. Part three contains basic notes and simple activities to familiarize students with painting and drawing tools common to many software programs. Vocabulary and basic notes are provided at the beginning of each section. A resource list of Web sites is provided at the beginning of each lesson that would be useful to librarians. Index. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
