WMS Eighth Graders EXCEL with Monopoly

Two male students are playing games on their computers.Eighth grade students in Mrs. Lyle’s Computer Solutions class apply real world applications and have fun doing it!  Each nine weeks grading period the students spend approximately eight days learning to use Excel Software.

Students produce worksheets that include sales for Books-A-Million, class grade averages, and even fundraising figures for Agriscience.  At the end of those eight days, the students use their knowledge of EXCEL and their application of financial budgeting to play Monopoly, (not as a board game), using an EXCEL spreadsheet to apply their income and expenses.  The winner always gets a prize!
