Spreadsheet Magic: Second Edition
Dozens of new lessons and activities enrich the second edition of this popular favorite, proof of how flexible and effective a teaching tool the humble spreadsheet can be. Spreadsheets are ubiquitous in the higher grades and the professional world, but they're also a great way for younger kids to learn basic math, science, and language arts concepts. This updated bestseller includes everything you'll need to incorporate spreadsheets in K-6 classrooms: an introduction to the software's basic functions and capabilities, step-by-step activity descriptions keyed to the NETS*S and content area standards, teaching tips and extension ideas for promoting higher-order thinking skills, and a CD with a complete set of modifiable lesson templates and samples.
