Excel is a spreadsheet program ( application). That you can use with Windows operating systems.
A spreadsheet is a grid in which you can enter, calculate, and manage data. In the past, spreadsheets were created by entering data by hand on a ledger paper. When calculators came along, the calculation of data was made easier but it was still entered by hand.
Today, however, advanced spreadsheet programs like Excel make it easy to manage numeric information, to create charts, and to maintain lists of data.
Below is an example spreadsheet designed to duplicate a traditional check ledger. Our first lesson will be to take the money you earned in the Monopoly game and create this spreadsheet.
