A distant relative in California, whom you have never
He warns that you are not spend more than $100 on yourself, and you must not spend more than $200 on each person you buy gifts for. You MUST spend EXACTLY $1,000 (no more, no less) or all of the money will have to be repaid.
You should probably know that this relative has two kids of his own, a four year-old son and a 7 year-old daughter. You might want to send them a little something too, to show your gratitude to the relative that gave you this money. Use the chart on the back to plan out your shopping trip. You do not need to use all of the lines, but don’t forget your siblings and your parents!
· Students will be able to create a spreadsheet with researched information.
· Students will be able to use formulas to solve math problems within their spreadsheet
Before you begin working on your Shopping Spree, let's review some of the basic terms that we have learned about Microsoft Excel:
What is a Spreadsheet???
A spreadsheet is a grid that organizes data into columns and rows. Spreadsheets make it easy to display information, and people can insert formulas to work with the data. For example, there is a particular icon that has a formula to sum up numbers that are given. This icon is called auto sum. Information can also be sorted and filtered.

Josh's Shopping List
8. Let's Go Shopping! Begin shopping and spend your $1,000.00 inheritence and use the spreadsheet to keep the total cost of all the toys just under $1000.00, tax included. And don’t forget that the total cost of all the items (tax included) must fall between $995.00 and $1000.00 or you lose all the money.
To calculate the Total of each row, Type the formula
=(B4*C4). = Cost of Item * Quantity in cell E4, F4, G4, H4....each cell underneath the Total heading. **(The number will change for each row)
Subtotal: Type the formula =SUM (F4:F26) in cell F27
Tax: Type the formula =(F27*0.06) in cell F28
Grand Total: Type the formula =SUM(F27:F28) in cell F29
Money Left Over: Type the formula =(1000-F29) in cell F30
Formatting Your Spreadsheet
Highlight the entire column D. Click on Format-> Number then select Currency.
Click on the letter F in Column F to highlight the entire column. Click on Format-> Cells then click on Currency. Click OK
You will now add color to make your spreadsheet look more eye appealing. Highlight the cells you wish to color and Click on the arrow next to the Fill Color button on the Formatting Toolbar and select a color that you wish to add to the selected cells. Do this throughout your spreadsheet.
