Excel 2010 Expert Level 5
Description: Excel 2010 Expert Level 5
Versions: Microsoft Office Excel 2010
Pre-Requisites: Excel 2010 Expert Level 4
Running Time: 1 Hour, 5 Minutes
Cost: $19.99


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, non-contiguous 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 non-blank 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.

Mubeezi Micah on 6/12/2011: Dear Richard,

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 re-writing them for 2010, but got busy with other projects. It is high on the TO-DO 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
