Here is this great tutorial that breaks down exactly how to use the basics of Spreadsheets. This second audio tutorial was created by Microsoft. It is really useful but you will need headphones or speakers to hear the lessons. Assignment Software: Microsoft Excel Goal: To Create a computerized version of a worksheet showing projected expenses for a University students' fall term. The design of the worksheet is based on this handdrawn planning version.
1) The first step is to launch MS Excel or Open Office Calc and start a new worksheet. 2) Next, type descriptive labels for the worksheet and TITLE, and label the rows and columns. You may have to adjust the column widths in order to accommodate some of the longer and shorter headings. 3) You should now also try to change the format of the cells to allow them to show the dollar sign figures (currency). Try using the shortcut method (right click) when you have the desired cells selected. 4) Now the data: a) Tuition and fees were a onetime fee which you paid in September ($1450) b) Books were also a onetime fee, also paid in September. ($450) c) Rent is a constant $250 a month, however you had to pay a $125 dollar damage deposit in your first month. d) Utilities are getting more expensive as the cold sets in. (Sept. $50, Oct. $60, Nov. $75, Dec. $95) e) Food is a constant $160 a month. f) Transportation is also a constant $120 a month. g) Odds and ends have been $100 a month for the first three, however this increases in December by $300 for your Christmas shopping.
5) Once you have the data filled in, you need to calculate the totals for each month, as well as the totals for each row. 6) Once the formulas are entered, and totals are complete, you should format the worksheet to make it much more attractive. Change to suit your own tastes, however, keeping in mind that the worksheet will be read by others and should be readable. 7) You may send the worksheet to your instructor at this point, OR you may want to try the additional activity below.
Extra Activity : Creating Charts to accompany the worksheet. 1) Using the worksheet from the previous section, create a chart depicting the data entered in a graphical form,
Some Guidelines: a) Highlight the data from the worksheet from which you wish to chart. b) From insert, choose chart. c) Choose a column chart d) The column chart often looks best when the months lay on the horizontal axis (bottom). To do this choose "series: in rows" e) The chart should be placed on the same page as your worksheet. Make sure the two do not overlap. f) Save the resulting document and email to your instructor as an attachment. 
When rounding whole numbers there are 2 rules to remember: I will use the term rounding digit  which means: When asked to round to the closest tens  your rounding digit is the second number to the left (ten's place) when working with whole numbers. When asked to round to the nearest hundred  the third place from the left is the rounding digit (hundreds place). Rule 1. Determine what your rounding digit is and look to the right side of it. If the digit is 0,1,2,3 or 4 do not change the rounding digit. All digits that are on the right hand side of the requested rounding digit will become 0 Rule 2. Determine what your rounding digit is and look to the right of it. If the digit is 5,6,7, 8 or 9, your rounding digit rounds up by one number. All digits that are on the right hand side of the requested rounding digit will become 0 Rounding with decimals: When rounding numbers involving decimals, there are 2 rules to remember: · Rule 1. Determine what your rounding digit is and look to the right side of it. If that digit is 4,3, 2 or 1, simply drop all digits to the right of it. · Rule 2. Determine what your rounding digit is and look to the right side of it. If that digit is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 add one to the rounding digit and drop all digits to the right of it. · Rule 3: Some teachers prefer this method: This rule provides more accuracy and is sometimes referred to as the 'Banker's Rule'. When the first digit dropped is 5 and there are no digits following or the digits following are zeros, make the preceding digit even (i.e. round off to the nearest even digit). E.g., 2.315 and 2.325 are both 2.32 when rounded off to the nearest hundredth. Note: The rationale for the third rule is that approximately half of the time the number will be rounded up and the other half of the time it will be rounded down. Examples: 765.3682 becomes: 1000 when asked to round to the nearest thousand (1000) 800 when asked to round to the nearest hundred (100) 770 when asked to round to the nearest ten (10) 765 when asked to round to the nearest one (1) 765.4 when asked to round to the nearest tenth (10th) 765.37 when asked to round to the nearest hundredth (100th.) 765.368 when asked to round to the nearest thousandth (1000th) View these Rounding Numbers worksheets for more information When finished, compare your answers with these!

This week we will be bringing together the data you collected last week and your new 'tax calculating' skills to complete your job outline, salary expectations, and monthly budget. We will be working on this during Monday and Tuesday's class. Here is an example of what your finished assignment should look like. 
Mean, Median, Mode Mean:
 Also known as the average. The mean is found by adding up all
of the given data and
Example:
78 Median:
 The median is the middle number. First you arrange the numbers
in order from lowest
Example: 66 74 75 78 82 89\
 as you can see we have two numbers, there is no middle number.
What do we do? 75 + 78 = 153 153 / 2 = 76.5
Hence, the middle number is 76.5. Mode:  this is the number that occurs most often.
Example:
78 56 68 92 84 76 74 56
68 66 78 72 66 The mode is 78. 
Welcome to Mr. Hamlin's Math 10 Essentials course. Your first assignment is to get your parents or guardians to sign your course outline and bring it back to me by Tuesday, February 2nd. Class work for Wednesday: Review concepts of Assessment quiz. 32 = 3 x 3 NOT 3 x 2  therefore 32 = 9
23 = 2 x 2 x 2 NOT 2 x 3  therefore 23 = 8 Order of Operations
Begin Exploration 1: Brainstorm 3 hypothetical careers  work with a partner to come up with a list of pro's and con's for each career. Consider things like benefits, salaries, job availability, working conditions, etc. Class work for Thursday Today we spent time in the computer lab looking up salary information for the prospective careers we brainstormed yesterday. We created hypothetical monthly budgets and then subtracted (  ) that budget from our monthly income to find out how much money we would have left over. How to find out your monthly income? hourly wage x however many hours you work in a week x 52 weeks in a year divide that by 12 (months in a year) ex. $10/hour x 40 = $400 $400 x 52 = $20800 $20800 ÷ 12 = $1733 per month Class work for Friday
You want to buy a video game system. The system costs $200. Lucky for you, they are having a 25% off sale today! To find out the sale price  take the sale % and subtract it from 100. 100  25 = 75 You will be paying 75% of the original $200 price. To find this out, multiply  $200 x 0.75 $150 will be the cost of your video game system
Income Tax Rates as sourced from Ernst & Young):
We took our potential salaries from the jobs we researched and found out how much income tax we would pay. For a train engineer making $85, 000 a year (GROSS income)  that person would fall into the 43.41% tax bracket. To find out how much tax they pay  take 100  43.41  56.59 This means after paying taxes, you get to keep 56.59% of your original $85,000 To find out how much that is  multiply  $85000 x 0.5659 = $48,101.50  This is how much you keep after taxes, this is your NET income.

You will need a Scientific Calculator for these equations. You will need to bring one to your exam. Calculators will not be provided for you. If you have an Ipod Touch or Iphone  search for TouchCalc in the App Store  it is free! News Flash  You can also access a scientific calculator without downloading anything on your Ipod or Ipone  just flip the screen sideways and it will change! You can also find this type of calculator online for free but of course this won't work during your exam.
