B. Presentation and Application
1. Ask students about the previous lesson.
2. A brief lecture on Formulas and Functions in an Excel window through
PowerPoint presentation.
3. Demonstrate how to apply the Formulas and Functions to the students.
* Start with the Arithmetic operators (*/).
4. Students are then tasked to apply Formulas and Functions in their
* Students are tasked to apply Arithmetic operators in a worksheet.

C. Generalization
At the end of the lesson, students will know that:
Using Microsoft Excel will make common calculations easy to perform.
You can use the AutoSum button on the Home tab to automatically add a column
or row of numbers.
Formulas and functions that perform calculations are the true power of
In Excel, all formulas start with the = sign.
The easiest way to copy a formula is with the Fill Handle in the lower right corner
of the cell.
To build a SUM( ) function, begin by typing the = sign; all functions begin with the
= sign. Next type the word SUM followed by an open parenthesis.
If you do not want to use the mouse, type in the references of the cells you want
to sum.
In Excel, the standard toolbar has a button that simplifies adding a column or row
of numbers. The AutoSum button, which resembles the Greek letter Sigma
(shown at right), automatically creates a SUM( ) function.
Arithmetic operators include: + (addition), - (subtraction), * (multiplication), /
(division), % (percentage), and ^ (exponentiation).
When more than one operator is used in a formula, the order of operations is as
follows: negation ( - ), percentage (% ), exponentiation (^ ), multiplication ( *),
division ( / ), addition ( + ), subtraction ( - ).
