Correct! So, our lesson for
today class is the Microsoft
Excel which is included in
the MS office Suite.
Our lesson objectives for
today are that for you to be
able to: identify the
functions of spreadsheet,
identify the components of
spreadsheet, enter data into
spreadsheet, Perform basic
mathematical tasks in a
spreadsheet, Insert charts in
a spreadsheet, save and print
a spreadsheet.
Alright class, are ready for
our topic today?
Good! Lets start first with
the definition of a
spreadsheet. What is a

Yes, Maam!

A spreadsheet is composed
of rows and columns.

Correct! A spreadsheet is
also a program that allows
you to use data to forecast,
manage, predict, and present
What do you think are the
use of a spreadsheet? Did
you already use a

No, Maam but weve seen

it used by our teacher in
recording our grades.

Yes, but spreadsheet is not

only for recording grades but
also for sports as their record
for statistics, for personal
use as a checkbook and a
record also for household
expenses and in business as
for payroll and investments.
So, how do we open the
application of MS Excel? To
open Excel, click the Start
button, point to All
Programs, point to Microsoft
Office, and then click
Microsoft Office Excel. Can
somebody demonstrate to us
how to open the MS Excel?

(A student will demonstrate

hot to open the MS Excel)

& MS Excel

Very good! Here is an

overview of a spreadsheet.
We can see here Workbook
and worksheets. A workbook
is a file created in Excel
2007. A workbook can
contain one or more
worksheets and related
items. An Excel 2007
workbook contains three
worksheets. A worksheet is a
single spreadsheet in a
workbook. You can add or
delete worksheets in a
workbook as required. Rows
and columns. The horizontal
divisions in a worksheet are
called rows. Each row is
identified by a number. For
example, the first row in a
worksheet is 1. Columns are
the vertical divisions in a
worksheet. Each column is
identified by a letter. For
example, the first column in
a worksheet is A. Cell. A cell
is formed by the intersection
of a row and a column. The
highlighted rectangular
border formed around an
active cell is called a cell
pointer. An active cell is the
cell in which you are
working currently. There can
be only one active cell at a
time. You can use a cell to
store and display different
types of data such as text,
numbers, or formulas. Each
cell in a worksheet is
identified by a cell address.
A cell address is made of the
column letter and row
number of the cell. For
example, the cell formed by
the first column and first
row has the cell address A1.
The cell address indicates
the exact location of a cell in
a worksheet. Status bar. This
bar provides information
about the present status of
work in the worksheet. For

None Maam.

example, if you are not

working on the worksheet,
the status bar displays the
message Ready. When you
click in a blank cell to enter
data, the status bar displays
the message Enter.
Any questions or
clarifications about the parts
and functions of a
Alright! To work with a
spreadsheet, you enter data
in the cells of the
spreadsheet. You enter data
by clicking a cell and typing
the data. To replace data in a
cell, you click the specific
cell and type the new data.
To edit data in a cell, you
double click in the cell and
type additional data. Can
somebody try typing your
name here in the
Very Good!You can enter
three types of data in a
spreadsheet such as texts,
numbers and formulas.
How about the basic
operations like cutting and
pasting? Well, we can do it
in the same way as MS
Word as well as the
shortcuts. This also includes
the undo, redo, cutting,
deleting, align left, center
and justify, etc. Can
somebody try and
demonstrate to us how to
copy, paste, cut, undo and
Excellent! To select a range
of cells in a column/row,
click the left mouse button
in a cell & drag the mouse
pointer to highlight the cells
of your choice.
To insert a row/column,

(A student will type his/her

name in the spreadsheet)

(A student will show how to

copy, paste, cut, undo and

select the row/column

heading, click the Home
Tab, click the Insert button
from the Cells Group. The
insertion occurs before the
selected column/row. You
can expand the width of a
column or the height of the
row to increase the visible
space in each cell. To begin
changing the width of the
column, move the mouse
pointer over the right edge
of column heading until the
mouse pointer changes to a
double-headed arrow. Can
somebody expand this
column and add another
column beside it?
Nice! You may want to
organize or rearrange data in
your worksheet. To sort data
in the worksheet, click the
column heading and then
click Sort & Filter in the
Editing Group on the Home
Tab. Who wants to try to
organize this list of names?
Very Good! You can insert
a chart by selecting the
group of cells you want to
include in you chart. Then,
go to Insert Tab and under
the charts category, select
the chart of your choice.
Like this. (with demo)
Lets proceed to inserting
formula. Formulas are
equations that perform
calculations in your
spreadsheet. Formulas
always begin with an equals
sign (=). When you enter an
equals sign into a cell, you
are basically telling Excel to
calculate this (with demo)
All functions have a
common format the equals
sign followed by the

how to expand and add rows
and columns)

function name followed by

the input in parentheses.
To Calculate the Sum of
cells, click the destination
cell, select the SUM button
(sigma symbol), select cells
for which you want to
calculate the sum, drag the
mouse pointer from cell C3
to cell C6, and then press
ENTER. (with demo)
You can copy the same
formula to obtain the sum of
values in the cell range D3
to D7. To copy a formula
from a cell to the Clipboard,
click cell C9, click the Edit
menu, and then click Copy.
To paste the formula from
the Clipboard to another
cell, click cell D9, click the
Edit menu, and then click
Paste. (with demo)

(1) Excel also provides a

list of predefined formulas
called functions. To insert a
function to calculate the
average of a group of values,
click the Insert menu, and
then click Function (2)To
specify which cells should
be used to calculate the
average, in the Function
Arguments dialog box, press
SPACEBAR to have the cell
range typed for you in the
Number1 box, and then click
OK. (3.) To save time, you
can use the AutoSum button
to perform functions such as
sum and average (with

then click Print. (with

Yes Maam.

To specify the pages that
you want to print, in the

Alright! I guess youre
ready for the next activity.
So, in your spreadsheet, list
down the items you bought
today or paid for this day in
the first column. Then, in the
second column, enter each
costs/price. Next, sort the
items in column 1 from A-Z.
Finally, in the last row of the
first column, enter Total then
in the next cell to the right
input the sum of all the items
using the sum formula. Is
everything clear?
