Purpose of Assignment

Electronic spreadsheets are useful tools, especially when creating a business budget. Once a spreadsheet is set up correctly in Excel®, values can be modified at any time, and the electronic spreadsheet will automatically update itself. Students will create a spreadsheet of computing equipment for a small fictional business where they are the owner. They will include the cost of all hardware and software needed for their employees, and calculate a budget for the equipment.

Each employee is required to work both in the business and remotely, and needs access to company data at all times.
