Modifying spreadsheets

We would advise you to complete this lesson on a desktop device as you need to download and interact with additional files as part of the learning. These can be downloaded from the last slide of the worksheet. You should always ask your parent or carer for permission before downloading files from the internet. During this lesson students will be taught that objects can be described using data. They will build a data set (a collection of related data that can be manipulated using a computer) within a spreadsheet application and apply appropriate number formats to cells.
