Simple game. Roll the dice to find out how many pennies to collect. Exchange pennies for larger value coins. Continue to exchange coins when possible. Aim of the game is to have most money with fewest coins at the end.
A sequence of five one-hour lessons designed to take the class from the very basic (this is a row; this is a column) to creating simple graphs and charts. These are presented in Excel spreadsheets designed for display on an IWB or individual screens but you could also print them. Lessons four and five offer a clear handout on formatting using Microsoft programmes in general. The sequence is based on the QCA unit but can be made more interesting if you do actually have the party at the end of the term. [Update, June 2007: None of the files is missing. I recapped a lot in this module because it was totally new to the class I taught this to.] Topics also included; bar graphs.
