Excel is simply a sheet of cells, each cell addressed using letters and numbers, into which different kinds of information can be entered. Excel offers teachers the facility to create templates of cells which can be manipulated and changed to present various problems and explorations for children to solve and explore. The versatility of the spreadsheet means that the activities can be quickly altered in order to set differentiated activities or tasks, for example the numbers used or number of options available can be changed. For example - Controlling counting forwards and backwards from a given number
- Securing knowledge of addition and subtraction facts
- Finding missing numbers which are hidden by shapes or symbols
Used with well-directed questions the images and information presented can help children to see the internal structure of a problem and explain their ideas. In this section you will find examples of Excel workbooks and teaching notes to explain the activities and teaching strategies used. The zip files contain a word document and an Excel file. |
