### Presentation Transcript

1. Window Quick Tips: • hold down CTRL and spin the mouse wheel to zoom in and out • hold down the ALT key and tap the TAB key to flip between open programs (like the last channel button on TV)

2. Microsoft Excel:Cells, Columns and Rows • Cells (the little boxes in excel) • Hold numbers or text • Contents viewed on edit line • Named like battleship – column and row. Cell A6 is named for where column A meets row 6

3. Basic Formulas with Excel

4. Excel Formulas • Excel can be used as a big calculator • Basic arithmetic (+, -, x , ÷ and yx) • Operation symbols: Subtraction: - Addition: + Multiplication: * Division: / Exponent: ^

5. Formulas Using Numbers • Syntax: always begins with equals sign • Example1 : seven times eight • Choose a cell and type =7*8 • When you hit enter the number 56 will appear • Example 2: four to the third power • Choose a cell and =4^3 • When you hit enter the number 64 will appear

6. Formulas Using Cell Names • you can use cell names as variables • Example1: Seven times the value in cell B2 • Type =7*B2 (cell B2 will be automatically outlined) • Example2: the value in cell B2 plus the value in cell B5 • Type =B2+B5 (both cells will be outlined)

7. Try this out…. • In cell B2 create a formula to multiply the values of cells B5 and B7 and divide by 4. • =B5*B7/4 answer should be zero • Add numbers to cells B5 and B7

8. Basic Functions with Excel

9. Excel Functions • Excel Functions do many things from calculating an average to finding standard deviation to combining several lines of text.

10. Excel Functions • Excel functions ALWAYS begin with an equals sign: • Form of an Excel function is: =function_name(argument1,argument2… ) Arguments are additional pieces of information Excel needs to do what you are asking it to do Arguments are always separated by commas.

11. sum=sum(number/cell_names) • Function sum has one or more arguments • number are actual numbers separated by commas • cell names are individual cell references separated by a comma or a range of cells. A range is shown using the first and last cell in the range separated by a colon.

12. sum using the autosum button • button showing Σ(greek letter sigma) automatically sums up the nearest range of numbers it can find. • The range must be continuous (no empty cells) for Excel to automatically choose the correct data

13. round=round(number,num_digits) • Function round has two arguments • Number is a number or cell value you want rounded • Num_digits is the number of digits you want rounded to. Zero and negative numbers will round to whole number place values. (0 round to ones, -1 rounds to tens, -2 rounds to hundreds, etc.)

14. average=average(range of cells) • Average function has one argument: a range of cells with numbers you want to average • It is on the pull-down menu attached to the autosum button • Simple as autosum – just select the range you want and hit enter

15. median=median(range of cells) • Median function has one argument: a range of cells with a dataset from which you want to determine the median • It is NOT on the pull-down menu attached to the autosum button • Can type it in as above or use More Functions from the autosum pull-down • Could also use insert function: fx

16. mode=mode(range of cells) • Mode function has one argument: a range of cells with a dataset from which you want to determine the median • It is NOT on the pull-down menu attached to the autosum button • Can type it in as above or use More Functions from the autosum pull-down • Could also use insert function: fx

17. mode(continued) • Mode will return the number that appears most often in a data set. • If there is no mode (no repeating numbers) Excel will show #N/A • Warning: If there is a bimodal set of data Excel will show the mode of the first repeating number in the set….

18. mode(continued) • If your data is as follows: • The numbers 2 and 3 are both modes: they both appear twice but Excel shows only 2 since it appears first in the data • Why? IDK, blame Excel.

19. rangethere is no range function • There is no one function that can get you the range of a dataset. You must: • Use several cells with functions to calculate it OR • Combine several functions into a single cell to find it • The simplest way is to subtract a =min function from a =max function: • =max(B2:B6)-min(B2:B6) (no equals sign for the 2nd one)

20. Logical Functions • Logical functions make decisions about information in a cell based on conditions you set and answer by displaying info depending on the decision • Conditions – criteria you set for Excel • (i.e. is the cell =5, is the cell >14, etc.)

21. if=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) • If function has three arguments: • 1. a logical test seeing if something is true or false in a cell • 2. a value that shows up if the logical test is true • 3. a value to show up if the logical test if false

22. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) • Argument 1: logical test • For the logical test argument you put a cell reference and a condition • i.e. you want to see if cell B2 is equal to 5. The first part of the function looks like this: =if(B2=5,

23. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) • Argument 2: value if true • For value if true argument you put a number or text for Excel to show if the logical test turns out to be true • i.e. if cell B2 actually equal to 5 let’s say you want the word EQUAL appear. The second part of the function looks like this: =if(B2=5,”EQUAL”, (remember, all text must be enclosed in double quotes)

24. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) • Argument 3: value if false • For value if false argument you put a number or text for Excel to show if the logical test turns out to be false • i.e. if cell B2 does NOT equal to 5 let’s say you want the word NOT EQUAL appear. The last part of the function looks like this: =if(B2=5,”EQUAL”,”NOT EQUAL”) (remember, all text must be enclosed in double quotes)

25. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) So if we take our example it looks like this:

26. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) Hitting enter gives us the function result which is EQUAL since cell B2=5

27. if(cont)=if(logical test, value if true, value if false) If we change the value in cell B2 to 8 it gives us the function result which is NOT EQUAL since cell B2 is no longer equal to 5

28. Text Functions • Functions you can use to manipulate text in a bunch of ways • UPPER function • LOWER function • PROPER function • CONCATENATE function

29. upper=upper(text) • Function has one argument • Converts text to all upper case letters • Text is typed words/numbers OR the cell that contains typed words/numbers

30. lower=lower(text) • Function has one argument • Converts text to all lower case letters • Text is typed words/numbers OR the cell that contains typed words/numbers

31. proper=proper(text) • Function has one argument • Converts text to all first letters upper case and all the rest lower case • Text is typed words/numbers OR the cell that contains typed words/numbers

32. concatenate=concatenate(text1, text2…) • Function has several argument • Combines text from multiple cells into one cell • The arguments are cells with text OR text in double quotation marks

33. Lookup Functions • Excel can be used to look up information in a table, similar to looking in a dictionary or phone book • A table is a list of data, each column having its own unique info or field

34. vlookup=vlookup(lookup_value,table_array,column_number)) • lookup_value : a cell where you will type the data that you want to seek on a table • i.e. in the database below I want to type a name in cell A2 to get more info from the table

35. vlookup=vlookup(lookup_value,table_array,column_number)) • table_array : information arranged in columns and rows • i.e. the table that the vlookup function goes to find the info in cell A2

36. vlookup=vlookup(lookup_value,table_array,column_number)) • column_number : column in the table that you want excel to return • i.e. column 2 will make vlookup send the phone number back into the function’s cell

37. Basic Formatting with Excel

38. Font Formatting • Everything is the same as Word: font, color, size, bold, italic, underline EXCEPT Formatting Borders around cells

39. Border Formatting • Found on the Font section of the Home ribbon. • Can make a variety of borders around single cells or groups of cells

40. Border Formatting • Pre set border selections appear on the pull-down menu while a box with custom settings can be found by clicking More Borders on the bottom

41. Alignment Formatting • Allows you to line up text within a cell to the left, right or center (like Word) • Also allows you to align text vertically within the cell – on the top, center, or bottom

42. Alignment Formatting • Examples:

43. Number Formatting • Currency • shows numbers with two decimals and a currency symbol of your choosing (dollars \$, pounds ₤, yen ¥, euros €) • On a pull-down menu off the

44. Number Formatting • Fraction • shows numbers as fractions or mixed numbers • On the pull-down menu • You set the number of digits for the denominator

45. Number Formatting • Fraction (cont) • Mixed numbers are entered by typing the whole number, then a space, then a fraction. • Mathematical operations can be done on cells formatted for fraction • The answers will appear as fractions

46. Number Formatting • Scientific Notation • shows large or small numbers with a base and power using the letter E to show exponent/power i.e. – 4.7 x 103 becomes 4.7E+3 meaning 4.7 raised to the +3 power
