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.
We have come a long way as teachers since those purple_ink mimeograph machines introduced us to worksheets, so let's be vigilant! Avoid lower_level_thinking worksheets, do not use too many worksheets (even good ones) and NEVER use worksheets as busy work. Instead, let's fill our classrooms with meaningful, thoughtful lessons and activities that peak student interest and promote higher_level learning. And that is a message worth copying and handing out!
