4 Survey of Math: Excel Spreadsheet Guide (for Excel 2007) Page 4 of 6 2 Analyzing Data Using Excel Dates in Excel The date January 1, 2005 can be entered in Excel using the formula =DATE(2005,1,1). This is a great benefit in personal finance problems, because you can then add 1 month to this date using the formula =DATE(2005,1+1,1) which will yield February 1, You can add 4 months using =DATE(2005,1+4,1), which yields May 1, To add 1 day to the date, and get an output of January 2, 2005, you can enter the formula =DATE(2005,1,1+1)-. In a similar fashion you can get any date you want from the initial date. If you add 12 months to a date, the year will increment by one, so =DATE(2005,1+12,1) will yield January 1, Here is one way (there are others) that you can conveniently enter dates in Excel, when the dates are changing in the month. This would be useful in a problem where interest was being compounded monthly. This way is convenient because you can copy/paste to get more dates! A B 1 Compounding Period Date 2 0 =DATE(2005,1,1) 3 1 =DATE(2005,1+A3,1) 4 2 =DATE(2005,1+A4,1) Once you have the formulas in Excel, you can format how the date is presented. After selecting the cells that represent dates, Right click anywhere in the selected region, choose Format Cells, and from the Number tab then select date. Importing Data Into Excel Getting data into Excel can be a bit tricky, but it is important if you hope to be able to analyse data effectively using Excel. Here is an outline of how you can do it. I have some data at mcquarrb/surveyofmath/excel/data1.txt that you can download into Excel. First try a simple copy/paste and see what goes wrong. An easy way to paste delimited data into Excel is the following. Select and copy the data you wish to save. Click on the cell where you want to start pasting the data, then left click and choose Paste Special. Choose text. Now, click on the clipboard image Excel has placed beside the newly pasted text, and choose Use Text Import Wizard. Follow the steps to get the data aligned correctly in the cells. If the above doesn t work, you can always do the following: Store the Data in a text file such as data.txt as comma delimited text, or tab delimited text. You can use Notepad or some other editor to do this, and can copy and paste the data from a webpage. In Excel, choose from the drop down menu Data > Import External Data > Import Data. You will have some choices to make, so make the appropriate choices based on how you stored the data in the text file. You can view how the data will be imported into Excel at this stage. Formatting Charts In Excel, rarely are the default options for a chart either pleasing to the eye or the best way to convey information. You should always include axes labels, include a title, remove unnecessary legends, and change grid lines and other parts of the chart to make it easy to understand and (frankly) enjoyable to look at. XY Plots To do linear regression (and nonlinear regression as well) and determine the correlation r between two variables, we can first create a scatterplot of the data, and then get Excel to figure out the equation of the regression line and the correlation from the scatterplot. Let s treat the data you pasted into Excel as (x, y) pairs, and create a scatterplot for the data using the following process.
