I have said "Don't Use Worksheets" about every way there is to say it, and each time I have included solid brain_based, researched reasons for this statement; and yet, I know that many people will ignore the science in favor of the convenience. It is very difficult to fight the tide when there are so many internet sites pushing worksheets at parents, and so many reputable textbook companies doing likewise. It is difficult to remember the reasons to avoid them when one has very little time to devote to working with math. Worksheets just seem so much easier than doing things any other way. Can they really cause harm?
1. Quickly Move to a Worksheet _ To quickly navigate to a worksheet in an Excel workbook, right_click on any of the 4 triangle navigation buttons (located immediately to the left of the worksheet tabs) to display a pop_up menu of worksheet names. Then, left_click on any worksheet name you want to move to. If the worksheet you want isn't shown, click on the More Sheets... option. 2. Move Between Worksheets in a Workbook _ With up to 1꯸ worksheets possible in a Microsoft Excel workbook, try these keyboard shortcuts to toggle or cycle between worksheets: Next worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Down] Previous worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Up] 3. Easy Worksheet Management _ Right_click on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) for a shortcut menu of worksheet options. This is a quick way to rename, delete, add, apply colors to worksheet tabs, copy, and more. By the way, you can also rename a worksheet by double_clicking on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) to highlight the sheet name. Type a new name and press [Enter]. Tip: avoid ALL CAPS which increases the width of the sheet name and decreases how many worksheets can be displayed in one view. 4. Insert a New Worksheet _ Just press [Shift] + [F11] to create a new worksheet. 5. Fast Worksheet Copy.
