Before starting this class, many of you probably thought that Excel was simply a spreadsheet program used by accountants. In reality, Excel has functions that we can use in our daily lives. For this assignment, draft a two-page essay in which you describe how Excel can be used in each of the following areas of daily life:
- home (e.g., saving money, budgeting, tracking expenses, keeping up with maintenance or projects);
- work (e.g., creating graphs or charts for presentations); and
- school (e.g., tracking classes, time management).
While the examples given may be used in your description, be specific about how you personally can benefit from using Excel in these areas. Also, you are encouraged to think about and describe other ways that Excel can be used in these areas. Since this essay is reflective in nature, outside sources are not required. Use 12-point Times New Roman font, double spacing, and paragraph format for your essay.
