12/14 Computer Lab Activity: New spreadsheet ideas of the day are:  1) I can copy data from other sources into my spreadsheet including special delimited data strings and convert them into columns using the Split function, and 2) I can sort data in my spreadsheet using the DATA menu tab Sort options.

Perform the following tasks and share the Google Sheets by 12/18.  You will have an hour of class computer time on 12/12 and 12/16.  Use formulas with cell references whenever possible.  Remember to use absolute refererence (F4 key: $A$1, $A1 or A$1) and =IF(test, true, false)  as needed.

1. Take the data at the bottom of this page and paste it into Google Sheets.  Use the SPLIT function [=split(A1,”, “)] to put the space delimited data into separate columns.  Copy the data and Edit – Paste Special – Paste Values Only to a new sheet.

2. Add the following two students to the grade data below:
Name : Thomas, John      McCullum, Alicia
Exam #1:   82                   65
Exam #2:   75                   79
Exam #3:   81                   84
Paper:         87                 92
Participation: 94                65

3. Calculate the final average for each student. The three exams should each count 25%
of the final average, the paper should count for 15%, and participation should count for
the remaining 10%.  Make the weighted amounts easily changeable so the grades can be
recalculated to view different scenarios. (Hint: use absolute references)

4. Calculate the class average for each exam.

5. Create a chart that shows the grade distribution for the final average. (A=90-100;
B=80-89; C=70-79; D=60-69; F=below 60)

6. Format the table and charts with borders, colors, etc.  Sort the data alphabetically and share the sorted file (with all the work listed above) to mike.myers@bethel.k12.or.us
