Spreadsheet Functions Part 1:
- Create a new spreadsheet that contains three separate data sets. Place each data set onto its own worksheet. See the list of example data sets:
Temperature of your city for the past 5-10 days Scored points per game of your favorite sports team for their past 5-10 games Amount you paid for gas for the past few months Miles flown/ driven per day/trip etc. for the past month Most anything else you can tabulate or can track
- Use at least four different functions (e.g. SUM, MAX, AVERAGE, MIN, COUNT, etc.) to summarize each data set. You choose which to use.
Spreadsheet Functions Part 2:
- On another sheet of the same file, create a worksheet that contains data and a calculation determining monthly payments for a proposed purchase.
Identify your dream vehicle (plane, automobile, boat, etc.) and estimate its cost and the interest rate if you financed its purchase. Enter data (loan amount, interest rate, term, etc.) onto spreadsheet and use the PMT function and cell references to determine the monthly payments.
