The goal of this course is to introduce the basis of Excel for those who would like some basic knowledge on how to do simple calculations to help them prepare a personal household budget and the like.
Concepts including introductory formulas, formatting, charts and graphs will be included. More advanced topics such as optimization, pivot tables and macros will be included based on personal interests of students. By unlocking this power, students will be more inclined to take hold of their financials and feel more confident with computing overall.
