This
course is for the expert user who
has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five
courses in our
Beginner Series plus Expert Level 1,
2,
3, and
4 classes. This course will teach you how to work with
math and basic statistical functions in Excel.
We will
begin by learning more about the SUM function. You'll see how to
use multiple, noncontiguous ranges in your functions. You will learn
how to create a running balance  also called a running total.
Next you'll learn how to use the SUMIF
function to add up values IF they meet a certain criteria. For
example, below you will see the total sales for each sales rep. The
rep's name is the condition. You will learn how to use static and
variable criteria. You will learn the difference between thesum
range and criteria range. We will also discuss the related functions
COUNTIF and AVERAGEIF.
In the next lesson, we'll learn about the
SUMIFS function (and the related COUNTIFS and
AVERAGEIFS functions). SUMIFS is similar to SUMIF, but it allows you
to use multiple criteria (instead of just one). In the example below,
you'll see that we have a list of orders, their due dates, and whether
or not they're paid. We can use SUMIFS to add up all of the orders that
are both past due and unpaid.
Next we'll learn about the various
counting and rounding functions. You will see how to COUNT
numeric cells, blank cells, and nonblank cells. You will learn all of
the many functions that you can use to ROUND different numbers,
and how these functions treat fractions and negative numbers
differently.
Next you will learn a ton of different
mathematical functions including MEDIAN, MODE, PRODUCT, POWER, SQRT,
QUOTIENT, MOD, ABS, SIGN, and more. You'll learn about scientific
notation, integer division, calculating a remainer, and how to generate
RANDOM numbers. You'll also learn how to use (and disable)
automatic recalculation.
Finally, we'll look at some of the basic
trigonometry functions in Excel. You'll learn about SIN, COS,
TAN, PI, DEGREES, and RADIANS. As an example, we'll learn how to
calculate the height of a building knowing it's distance and the angle
to the top.
Again, this is the perfect class
for anyone who wants to learn how to work effectively with math
and basic statistics
functions in Microsoft Excel
2010. Of
course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is
for you, please contact me.

I am fully satisfied with this tutorial. It is amazing how many math functions you demonstrate in just an hour. Keep it up!

Laurie J. on 5/3/2013: Do you have any sample tests where we can check our skills on these classes?
Reply from Richard Rost:
I used to have a whole set of tests for my older Excel 2003 lessons. I was in the process of rewriting them for 2010, but got busy with other projects. It is high on the TODO list.

Anonymous on 4/27/2014: Hi Richard, can you think of some examples (+ or ) of when TRUNC is different than ROUNDDOWN (for the same num_digits)? Could they be the same function? Thanks!
Reply from Richard Rost:
Aside from the fact that you can specify a number of digits with ROUNDDOWN, I don't see any difference, no. Usually you have to be careful because some functions will treat negative numbers differently, but with these two that's not the case.

Anonymous on 4/27/2014: Is QUOTIENT the same function as INT?
Reply from Richard Rost:
No. QUOTIENT returns the integer portion of a division (the opposite of MOD). INT just rounds.

Joe Beniacar on 4/28/2014: But it rounds down, while QUOTIENT removes the fractional part that would increase it above that integer...?

Jafar Abdalla on 3/8/2016: Hi, can you please make an video abut using trig functions in Excel? Thanks
