BCT 130  /  Spreadsheets

I love teaching this class.  Spreadsheets are an amazing tool and everyone should learn how to use them.  Students consistently finish this course with a new found appreciation for spreadsheets and their many uses.  Consider the advanced class (BCT 220 - Spreadsheets II) if you find you love spreadsheets as much as I do.(For official WVC course description please see wvc.edu)
