1.5 Spreadsheet Magic You may not know it yet but I am a spreadsheet wizard. Not only are spreadsheets very useful for organizing information and performing calculations, but you can also use them to have a lot of fun – and practice magic! Don’t believe me? Try it out! What you do: 1. Open a new Excel spreadsheet. 2. Choose two symbols (numbers, letters, etc.). 3. Create a rectangle of ANY size using only these two symbols. E.g. My symbols are A and B, and I made a 6x6 rectangle What I do: 1. I will add another row and column of symbols to your rectangle. E.g. I added As and Bs to make a 7x7 rectangle. What you do: 4. Change one symbol to the other symbol. What I do: 2. Magically figure out which symbol was changed. What you do: 5. Try and figure out how I magically know the answer… then you too can be a spreadsheet wizard!
