6th Graders "knock it out of the park" on their second MS-Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet had them creating a spreadsheet for a business venture of their choosing. This week, students learned how products end up in our stores. From manufacturer to distributor, wholesaler to retail store, students learned the basics of how profits are made through markups of various percentages.
Here are some samples of the spreadsheets they created. The quality of these products are an indication of the student's understanding of what is expected in a business related spreadsheet.
