Budget Spreadsheet with Chart | Enrichment

Students create a budget spreadsheet and chart with school supplies.

 

Assign: Back to School - School Supplies Budget Spreadsheet

Instructions: Students have $65.00 to spend on school supplies. Students use the School Supplies Price List to purchase as many items as they can without going over budget. Students create a budget using a spreadsheet to show how much they have to spend (allowance) , and how much each item costs (expenses). Students use a simple formula (sum) to calculate the total expenses. Students create a simple formula to subtract total expenses from the $65.00 allowance to show how much money is left over(allowance - expenses = money left over). Students create a chart showing their expenses.

This is one of the most important lessons in the course. Learning to use the shift keys without losing your home row orientation is one of the most important, and difficult skills you have to acquire in order to become a competent typist.

The shift key is always pressed by the pinky finger opposite to the one hitting the other key.

When you go to press a shift key, you may have to move your hand slightly to reach it, but try to get there mainly by stretching your pinky finger, allowing your remaining fingers to keep as much contact with the home row as possible. Try not to rotate or bend your wrists, as this will throw your home row orientation off and cause you to lose your grounding.

This lesson also introduces the colon, which, like the semi-colon is pressed with the right-hand pinky finger, while holding the left shift key down.
