In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. All students want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer. Our students will certainly be provided a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as they learn and master a wide range of 21st Century Skills.

In this year’s “Technology Applications” class, students will learn and master various topics associated with computers and technology. For a list of the various technology topics covered in this course, CLICK HERE for a PDF file. CLICK HERE for a Microsoft Word document.

Week 31 (April 20, 2015)

With STARR testing this week, work on our second Excel Spreadsheet was a little sporadic.   When all the dust settled, the spreadsheet came out great. Students did a fantastic job of paying attention to all the details.

This real life project had students creating an Excel spreadsheet for a small business of their creation. Students had to list a number of items they plan to sell in their store and determine a "Cost" for each item.  Using the Internet, students researched typical "Markup" percentages and used an Excel Formula to calculate a "Selling Price".

Here are some samples.
