Spreadsheet tutorials

This series of spreadsheet tutorials for excel 10, from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, work through a range of spreadsheet functions that can be used when analysing data.

Each tutorial contains detailed instructions and a series of exercises to work through. The tutorials start with some of the more basic spreadsheets functions, eventually building up to performing t-tests and creating histograms. The five tutorials cover:

  1. Formulae, functions and averages
  2. Auto-fill, cell reference and standard deviation
  3. Graphs, error bars and standard error of the mean
  4. t-tests
  5. Histograms
