1 Using Excel to Graph a Linear Equation Level: LBS 5 Goal: To become familiar with Microsoft Excel and the Chart Wizard in order to create graphs of linear equations on the computer. Learning Outcomes: Use a spreadsheet to construct a table of values Use the Chart Wizard to create graphs of linear equations Contents Getting Started Starting Microsoft Excel Introduction to Spreadsheets What is a Spreadsheet? What can a Spreadsheet Do? Moving Around the Spreadsheet Constructing a Table of Values Entering Data onto a Spreadsheet Entering Formulas onto a Spreadsheet Using the Copy and Paste Options Using Chart Wizard Selecting Data on the Spreadsheet Selecting Chart Types Selecting Data Ranges Formatting Chart Options Selecting Chart Location Saving the Spreadsheet Saving for the First Time Saving Changes Demonstrations (exercises to be handed in) Prerequisite: Basic understanding of Computers Completed Foundations Math Level 3 (FM3) chapter 6 (Graphing & Variation)

2 Getting Started Starting Microsoft Excel Microsoft Excel is a member of the Microsoft Office Group. Using the left mouse button, click on the Start button and move the pointer up to Programs (it should be highlighted). A new menu will appear. Next, move the cursor across to the new menu and position the pointer over Microsoft Office. Yet another menu will appear. Again, move the pointer over to the new menu and find Microsoft Excel. With the mouse pointer positioned over the words Microsoft Excel, click the left mouse button and Excel will open. The screen should look similar to the one below. This module will introduce you to Microsoft Excel and walk through the step by step process of creating a linear graph using the Chart Wizard. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 2

5 Entering Formulas onto a Spreadsheet For each value of x, a formula can be entered to calculate the y value. In cell B2 type =2*a2-1. This formula states the value of cell B2 is equal to 2 times cell A2 minus 1. When the enter key is pushed, the number 5 is displayed in cell B2. This is the value of y when x is 2; therefore, (-2, -5) is a point on the graph. Using the Copy and Paste Options To get the rest of the y values, we simply copy the formula from B2 and paste it into cells B3, B4, B5, B6 & B7. With cell B2 as the active cell, left click on the Edit menu located on the toolbar and select Copy from the list of options. Cell B2 will have a broken line that appears to be moving around the outside of the cell. Position the pointer over cell B3, left click the mouse, and while holding the left mouse button down, move the pointer down to cell B6. The cells B3 to B6 should be highlighted. Left click on the Edit menu again and select Paste from the list of options. The formula will automatically calculate each y value for the x value beside it. Your screen should look similar to the one on the next page. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 5

6 Using Chart Wizard Selecting Data on the Spreadsheet Chart Wizard is a four-step process for creating graphs. Prior to using Chart Wizard, we need to select the data (table of values) we wish to graph. This tells Chart wizard what to graph. Using the mouse, left click in cell A1. While holding the left mouse button down, move the mouse to cell B6. The cells will turn black as you pass over them. While the pointer is over cell B6, release the mouse button. Your screen should look similar to the one below. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 6

7 Chart Wizard is located in the Insert menu on the toolbar. Left click on the Insert menu and select the Chart option. A dialogue box similar to the one below should appear on the screen. Selecting Chart Types Step 1. As it says in the title bar, Chart Wizard is a four-step process and step one involves choosing the chart type. Choose XY (Scatter) and for the chart sub-type, choose the middle one on the left. The Chart Wizard box should look similar to the one below. Click the Next > button. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 7

8 Selecting Data Ranges Step 2 involves selecting the data for the chart. Since our data was highlighted prior to starting Chart Wizard, the data is already selected (the Data range box is filled in).. Note that a picture of what the graph looks like is shown in the 2 nd step. We simply click Next > to proceed to step 3 of 4. Formatting Chart Options Step 3 allows us to add titles, labels and generally dress the chart up. The Chart Title box is already filled in with y = 2x 1. To keep things simple, left click in the Value (X) Axis box and type x. Do the same thing for the Value (Y) axis typing y in that box. We don t require Gridlines (besides the x and y-axis) so left click on the Gridlines tab and uncheck all boxes with check marks in them. Simply left click inside the box with a check mark, and it will disappear. It should look similar to the one below. Click on the Next > button to proceed to the final step. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 8

9 Selecting Chart Location Step 4 asks where the sheet should appear. The default is As object in:. We will use the default setting. By left clicking on the Finish button, our newly created chart will appear on the screen with the table of values. You screen should look similar to the one on the next page. Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 9

10 Saving the Spreadsheet Saving for the First Time Now is a good time to save what we ve done so far. Position the mouse pointer over the word File located in the upper left part of the screen. Left click and a menu will drop down (called a drop-down menu). Move the pointer over the word Save, and left click again. A box will appear similar to the one below. Type Linear Graph1 and click on the Save button. Your work is now safe should there be a power failure or the computer crashes for some unknown reason. Saving Changes If you wish to make changes to the file we just saved, you will need to save those changes after they are made. Each time you Save a file after the first time, the file is updated to what is currently on the screen. It is important to save regularly to avoid losing information that you have worked hard on. Each time you save changes, you are replacing the file with the most current version you have. Check with your instructor if you have any questions or concerns about this module before proceeding the demonstrations on the next page.

11 Demonstrations (Exercises to be handed in or checked by the instructor) Demonstration # 1 Using Microsoft Excel s Chart Wizard and a table of values, create an (XY) Scatter graph for the following equation: y = 3 x + 6 Demonstration #2 Using Microsoft Excel s Chart Wizard and a table of values, create an (XY) Scatter graph for the following equation: 2x 5y = 20 (Hint: solve for y first) Integrating Computers into Learning Activities & Demonstrations 11
