What is an Excel Worksheet? _ An Excel worksheet is electronic ledger created by the spreadsheet application Microsoft Excel. Worksheets are used to allow their users to store edit and manipulate data within rows and columns divided into cells. Worksheets also allow users to create easy to create calculations and logical functions to perform specific functions for each specific worksheet. Worksheets allow users many unique and common ways to sort and filter endless amounts of data. This data can be import and export to and from various resources.
Now, as a former teacher I am not saying that one should never use math worksheets; however, I do believe that many teachers are using a very superficial method of instruction that relies too much on low_level math worksheets and hands_off instructional approaches. Worksheet lessons move from reading the directions aloud, to doing sample problems as a group, to completing the worksheet independently (or at home with parents), day in and day out. Teaching needs to be more than passing out worksheets. Whether you are the classroom teacher, instructional specialist, or parent, the methods you use greatly impact the level of understanding achieved by your students.
