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.

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.
