S2 Info Systems – Spreadsheets

This week the class have been learning more about another information management program – spreadsheets.

Most of the pupils have a basic understanding of spreadsheets already, but we have taken the opportunity to review some of the more advanced functions, including more complex formulae and charting.

The main task revolved around carrying out a class survey and using a spreadsheet to analyse the results. Both Jake and Gemma wrote good blog posts about the work they had done.

S2 Info Systems – Management Information Software

The class have been looking at the range of management information software available. We consider general purpose packages such as word processing, spreadsheets and email as resources which are used to share information.

This week we have been paying particular attention to word processors and spreadsheets. We watched one of the snowboard cross races at the Winter Olympics and then used this as a context for word processing a letter to Nate Holland suggesting we become his sponsor.
