Creating Your Own Project
In this online technology project, we will begin by creating a new document in Google™ Docs. We will be learning how to enter, modify, and format data in spreadsheet cells and create formulas to solve routine calculations, as well as track diminishing resources. We’ll also learn how to create, modify, and format a pie chart that graphically illustrates where the resources have been used. Finally, we’ll learn how to print our spreadsheet and chart.
