This tutorial is to be used alongside the Spreadsheet Class Workbook. It is a compilation of existing resources in a slide show format to assist the completion of the writing frame and used with mixed abilities in year 7. It allows teachers to monitor how much work is being done by their students, starting them off together as a class and then providing the tutorial in a community area so that each student can gain access and progress at their own pace. This is very useful as some students can be lazy, resourceful or away. It is also useful if a new student/s arrive in the middle of a unit.
Having a tutorial allows for tracking of current work completed (or not). The accompanying Class work book has elements in it that follow the tutorial and uses numbered slides to aid in referencing and location of information for the student. The tutorial assists the student up to Part 5- Classwork 6 in the workbook. From Classwork 6 onwards the student is required to translate learned competencies into completion of the tasks as indicated.
Parts 3,4,5 have a video tutorial that are to be used alongside the lesson.
