Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to use Microsoft Excel formulas while playing a fun and challenging mystery game. 
I love teaching programming and data analysis using fun and interesting examples because it helps students go farther than learning hard to contextualize concepts. Understanding what we are doing and why means that students will be able to apply algebraic concepts (like x+y) having understood examples like (red bike + blue bike) in a way that has context and meaning. I have taught Excel to hundreds of college students and learners of all ages. In data analysis, Excel is often the first step to exploring data and figuring things out.
Students should work to solve the puzzles on their own code each week using the Excel sheets, videos, and slides provided. Each module should take about one to two hours to work through and homework should take about the same, but can take longer or shorter, depending on the interest of the learners and how quickly they can solve the puzzles and learn about the new features we work on in Excel each week. 
You will need a computer with Microsoft Excel on PC or Mac. Any version of Excel from 2016 onwards that can use .xlsx files should work. A keyboard and mouse are strongly recommended. It may be possible to complete the course using Google Sheets, but some features may not work properly.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Feedback is provided for all assignments.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course involves a murder mystery and has some themes that may not be appropriate for all students. While there is no graphic content, there is discussion of a murder mystery, various clues, DNA, victims, detectives, and other related elements. You will need a computer with Microsoft Excel on PC or Mac. Any version of Excel from 2016 onwards that can use .xlsx files should work. A keyboard and mouse are strongly recommended. It may be possible to complete the course using Google Sheets, but some features may not work properly. Flies for the modules will be shared with Sync, video feedback with Loom, class videos via YouTube.
Videos, spreadsheets, and slides are provided each week in addition to solutions (which are provided the following week).
