TOPIC: WORKSHEET II

Sub-Topic 1: EXCEL CALCULATIONS:

The basic and most powerful feature of Microsoft Excel is the ability to accept formula into the worksheet. A Formula is an instruction that is entered to tell Excel how to Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, or otherwise perform calculation by using the content of other cells.

It is advisable to construct formula that makes reference to cells in the worksheet so that the result can be instantly generated even the values are changed.

When working on Excel calculations, the following guidelines should be noted;

(i) To enter a formula, first select the cell that will contain the formula.

(ii) All formula must begin with equal (=) sign tells Excel to treat the cells contents as a formula.

(iii) The formula should not be more than 1024 characters.

(iv) The function name (e.g. SUM, AVERAGE) which is preceded by equal (=) sign must be selected and followed by the desired argument, i.e. =SUM(A5:F5). In this case, SUM is the function name and A5:F5 is the argument.

Addition: Using the SUM Function

The SUM function is used to add together a range of data or numbers. To sum up the values of a range of data:

  • Open the worksheet containing data (as previously done in fig 4.2 above).
  • Position the cell pointer on the desired cell i.e. the cell where the result should be displayed.
  • Type equal sign, Select the function (i.e. SUM) and state the range of cells.
  • MS Excel will highlight the range specified.
  • Press the Enter key.
  • The result is displayed.

Fig 5.1: summing up a range of values

NOTE: Educators should kindly ensure that each student follow the steps above and should also endeavour to explain alternative methods using the ‘AUTOSUM’ symbol (), and Addition sign(+).

TOPIC: GRAPH

CONTENT: – Creating Graph

 

Sub-Topic 1: CREATING GRAPH

GRAPH: A graph is a diagram showing the relationship that exist among variables, quantities (varies data), usually of two, each measured along one of a pair of axes at right angles. It may not be possible to plot a graph without value. The excel spreadsheet provides the values that are plotted.

Creating graph

To create a graph, you can either use the chart wizard or press the F11 key

Types of Chart

  1. Line graph
  2. Histograms
  3. Pie-charts
  4. Legends

1. Line graph: Line graphs are often used to plot changes in data over time, such as monthly temperature changes or daily changes in stock market prices. Line graphs have a vertical axis and a horizontal axis. If you are plotting changes in data over time, time is plotted along the horizontal or x-axis and your other data, such as rainfall amounts is plotted as individual points along the vertical or y-axis

 

  1. Histograms: A histogram consists of tabular frequencies, shown as adjacent rectangles, erected over discrete intervals (bins), with an area equal to the frequency of the observations in the interval. The height of a rectangle is also equal to the frequency density of the interval.

Sub-Topic 2: PIE CHART and LEGEND

  1. PIE-CHART: Pie-charts, or circle graphs as they are sometimes known, are a little different from the other two types of graphs discussed.

For one, pie charts do not use horizontal and vertical axes to plot points like the others. They also differ in that they are used to chart only one variable at a time. As a result, it can only be used to show percentages. The circle of pie charts represents 100%. The circle is subdivided into slices representing data values. The size of each slice shows what part of the 100% it represents.

 

 

4. LEGEND: A legend is used to identify each series in a chart. Its contains on sample of the marker colour and pattern of each series.
