Which Summer 2016 Olympic Sports Were Our Favorites?
We reviewed creating surveys with this project and learned how to create bar graphs
with Excel, understanding how to use the available technology to compare data.
We began our first Excel project of the year with surveys to find out which summer Olympic sports we liked best, or wished we could have watched. We each presented our classmates with our top 5 choices, asking them to select one favorite from our 5, making each of our graphs unique. We each created bar graphs, using Excel, to show the results of our individual surveys. ... but we weren't quite done... We each searched online, using the official Rio Olympics 2016 web site, to find images to represent the Olympic sports we selected for each of the bars of our graphs. We each carefully followed Mrs. Dingman's directions to insert the images we saved from our "Pictures" folders.
And, we were introduced to another fabulous Excel feature. We each learned how to stack and scale the images to fit perfectly into the bars of our graphs, without stretching or distorting them.
Our competence and confidence using the available technology will continue to grow!
