The VisiCalc program is visual calculation on a computer making use of an electronic worksheet that is beneficial to the business user in dealing with numerous accounting and clerical procedures. The Lotus 1-2-3 program begins with VisiCalc and improves upon it by adding graphics and a database as well as more efficient ways to manipulate and calculate on an electronic worksheet. This unit is designed to help the student become a confident user of VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3 quickly and with a minimum expenditure of effort. The unit is two-fold in that the student learns how to operate a program called VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3, in addition to learning many of the concepts, terms, and functions needed in general to operate programs containing an electronic worksheet. The unit, designed to be covered in three weeks, consists of seven sections. The first section of the guide is an introduction that also contains student behavioral objectives and a lesson plan outline. Lessons and exercises for VisiCalc and Lotus 1-2-3 make up the second and third sections of the guide, with suggested applications to business following in the fourth section.
