Purpose

This assignment focuses on using spreadsheets for data entry, calculations, and "what if" analysis.

Assignment

  1. Create a personal Google account, if you do not already have one.
  2. Login to WebCT, and under "Homework 2" you will find file "sample-gradesheet.csv". This file is a gradesheet containing fictitious student data. Download this file onto your desktop.
  3. Return to Google Documents and create a new spreadsheet. Now, import the file "sample-gradesheet.csv".
  4. Work on this spreadsheet to insert formulas wherever appropriate (e.g., MID, MAX, MIN, AVG, 100%).
    • The formula for the midterm grade is: col. ex. #1 5%, homework #1 30%, test #1 65%.
    • The formula for 100% is on our course syllabus
  5. Format the spreadsheet to make it usable (use bold, boxes, background color, foreground color, etc.) as per Ch. 15 of our textbook.

Bonus

Add a letter grade column which gets automatically updated based on the column 100%.

Testing

Verify that your spreadsheet is accurate by comparing the values it calculates (e.g., under 100%) with the values provided in "sample-gradesheet.csv".

If you are not satisfied, go back to earlier steps and fix things.

Submissions
