Various ways to display formulas in Excel

There are a number of different ways that you can display formulas in Excel. This can be useful when investigating why a certain formula isn’t working correctly or when grading your students’ worksheets to ensure they are using formulas correctly.

A better way to save

You can specify a default location to save your Excel workbooks. You can also “pin” other locations so that they are quickly accessible every time you save.

Use VLOOKUP to help manage your gradebook

VLOOKUP is a formula that allows you to “look up” certain data and retrieve it into another table, by row. This function can be especially useful when you have a well-structured table with information organized by rows (such as a gradebook)!

Using the Excel Camera tool

You can use Excel’s Camera tool to add images of Excel tables, charts, ranges, and single cells to your dashboard.

Calculating depreciation using the SLN function

When teaching depreciation in Introduction to Accounting, faculty always cover a variety of different depreciation methods, including straight-line depreciation. Next time you teach this topic, build your students’ Excel skills by showing them how to use the straight-line (SLN) function in Excel.
