What are the Parts of a Worksheet? _ Worksheets consists of four primary parts. A cell is the most commonly used part within an Excel workbook. Cells are where users can enter data to be used within formulas and charts later on. Each Cell consists of a Column and a Row. A column is all the cells in one vertical line in the worksheet. Column names can be seen across the top of a worksheet. A row is a collection of cells in line horizontal across a worksheet. Row names or Values can be seen scrolling down to the left of the worksheet.
We have come a long way as teachers since those purple_ink mimeograph machines introduced us to worksheets, so let's be vigilant! Avoid lower_level_thinking worksheets, do not use too many worksheets (even good ones) and NEVER use worksheets as busy work. Instead, let's fill our classrooms with meaningful, thoughtful lessons and activities that peak student interest and promote higher_level learning. And that is a message worth copying and handing out!
