Spreadsheet Estimation

Sixth graders input 10 pieces of data per column, provide an estimation of their sum, and using the function formula for the Excel spreadsheet, determine the actual total. To bring this exercise into a real world activity, 6th graders will then import the database that they created in science class and estimate the total volume, area, mass, weight, temperature, and density of a set of given materials.
