- Formula Writing (using all mathematical operations: trigonometric functions, inverse trig functions, converting radians to degrees)
- Formula Replication, Using Fixed and Relative References
- Analysis of Large Data Sets with Computer Commands
- IF Functions, Sum Functions, Max and Min Functions
- Making and Using Pivot Tables (a Pivot Table is a series of simulating cells that update when a referenced variable(s) are changed at their input location(s), each model is a pivot table)
- Goal Seek/Solver to Solve/Optimize
- Applying Random Number Generator Functions
- Development of Living Graphs that Update Instantly
- Graphing Multiple (X Y Scatter) Data Sets on Axis
- Worksheet Replication
- Application of Numerical Methods such as Euler's Method and Trapezoid Rule to model real world content with ideal formulas such as the ones listed below for each subject area:
