Product Description
I became tired of my students being unable to use Excel to solve a situational math problem - so I created this set of activities.

This will work with Excel, Libra, Google, Numbers, Open Office, etc.

This includes a set of situations that build in difficulty/complexity to teach students to solve the problem with a dynamic spreadsheet.

To check that the situation has been set up correctly, the teacher will come and change a key input value and see if the entire spreadsheet adjusts correctly.

I included a spreadsheet with a solution to each situation. There are about 15 situations. This takes me 5-8 class days. I love doing this the weeks leading up to winter break. It can be done in groups or individually.


This project is great – but so are all my other resources.
