Support Material: Developerís Guide to Excelets
Go to: http://academic.pgcc.edu/~ssinex/excelets/ (opens a new window)
Description: Excelets are interactive Excel spreadsheets or simulations of mathematical models. The user changes a variable and the spreadsheet changes in numerical, graphical, and/or even symbolic form (equations). Through the use of numerical experimentation and "what if" scenarios, we have a powerful learning tool for students using readily available off-the-shelf software. All of this is done computationally with no use of programming, no macros or Visual Basics for Applications, VBA. The use of VBA adds another level of sophistication via programming and also possible security concerns. An Excelet with or without VBA resembles a "Javaless" applet. It is assumed that users of this guide are experienced with the use of Excel.
