What else can you do?
In this project, you’ve learned how to use Excel to carry out calculations and
create a planning tool. There are many projects you can create using these
skills, including:
If you’ve got children in the family who are learning their times tables, you
can use Excel to create revision grids. Just enter the times table required at the
top, and Excel can work out 1x, 2x, all the way up to 12 and show them in
different cells. You don’t have to type out the numbers 1 to 12. Use a formula
that adds one to the value above it. If you can’t quite envisage this, you can
download an example from my website.
If someone in the family has a wedding or anniversary party to plan, you can
use Excel to juggle the guest numbers and budget costs.
You can create a health grid to record your calorie intake and exercise regime.
If you’re thinking about buying a new house or getting a new job, you can use
a simple spreadsheet to model how your disposable income will change.
You can keep track of the money in different savings accounts and work out
your total assets. You can even estimate the interest you’re likely to get, based
on the current interest rates for each account.
Use Excel to keep track of your hobbies or creative endeavours. I keep track
of how many words I’ve written using Excel, but you might want to record the
length of your walks or the yield you get from the vegetable plot.
Work out a simple proﬁ t and loss for a cake sale. Is it worth hiring a table at
the village fete? How many buns do you have to sell to break even? What if
you put up the price of a cake? Excel can help answer all these questions.
You can use Excel to keep an eye on the value of your stamp, music or antique
collections.
