Our states project is coming up, and this year it is going to be 100% digital!  You will be creating the following components as part of the project:
  • A brochure for your state
  • A budget for your road trip
  • A map of your road trip route
  • A digital poster board of your team's products
Today we will preview working in spreadsheets.  Here is a little "cheat sheet" you can use.

Cells: boxes on a spreadsheet
Cell reference: column letter and row number together, like A1 or C15
Range: a group of cells, named by two corners, like A1:C15 or B2:B20
Formula: calculations done in a spreadsheet cell. They ALWAYS start with =
Basic math functions:
* multiplication
/ division
+ addition
- subtraction
