WHAT PREVIOUS DELEGATES HAVE SAID:

"Very Stimulating" - "Great to have the TIME to explore ..." - "Thoroughly enjoyable"
"Definitely want to come again" - "Autograph can do so much more than I thought!"
"Those Word tricks - I wish I had know them 10 years ago!
" - "An oustanding 3 days"

"Amazing Intranet and CD resources"

From 1994 to 2000, the TSM training days were offered in a one-day format,
giving delegates typically 3-4 hours to get to grips with using mathematical ICT.
This is the 6th residential TSM Workshop, allowing much more time to practise and reflect,
running in 2 STRANDS, each offering 6 hours of supervised instruction with worksheets:
A: the mathematical aspects of MS Office (including Excel) and Computer Algebra Systems
B: The Dynamic Classroom
(Autograph, GSP and Cabri)

2007: A SUMMER OF MATHEMATICS TECHNOLOGY, and MUSIC!!

A4 - Excel for advanced users [Mike H & Mark D]
This workshop will look at some of the advanced features of Excel and how they can be used to create interactive and dynamic resources for use in the classroom or for independent learning.
We will look at features such as conditional formatting, slider bars, buttons and option boxes, named and dynamic ranges, data validation and customization of the interface as well as including an introduction to the Macro recorder and Visual Basic for Applications.
There will be plentiful examples and a chance to work on an idea of your own.
