Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This unit is suitable for pupils who have a basic knowledge of spreadsheets including cell references, simple formulae and formatting, although these topics are revised in the fi rst lesson, making it also suitable for pupils new to spreadsheets. The unit is centred around creating a fi nancial model for a TV show. Pupils start by looking at different types of model and then use basic spreadsheet techniques to create and format a simple fi nancial model to calculate the expected income from viewers’ voting. The model is then extended to include sales from merchandising, with the introduction of “what if” scenarios. Finally the pupils create a seat booking system to book seats and calculate income from seat sales. Spreadsheet features covered include SUM, MAX, IF and COUNTIF functions, cell naming, conditional formatting, validation, charting and simple macros.
