Real World Learning Objects: Educational Technology
A Study of Diverse Populations Through the Creation of Charts and Graphs

Project Overview

Future teachers need to demonstrate a sound understanding of technological operations and concepts.  In this activity, students will learn how to visually illustrate archived census data using the Excel spreadsheets charting feature.  This feature creates a valuable method for students to analyze data in a spreadsheet.

Spreadsheets are a great teacher productivity tool, which can be used beyond the math classroom.  Integrating spreadsheets effectively into the curriculum motivates students and empowers their learning while developing higher-order thinking skills.
