Why Excel?
Barreto, Humberto
Journal of Economic Education, v46 n3 p300-309 2015
This article is not the usual Excel pedagogy fare in that it does not provide an application or example taught via a spreadsheet. Instead, it briefly reviews the history of spreadsheets in the economics classroom and explores the current environment, with an emphasis on modern learning theory. The conclusion is not surprising: spreadsheets improve learning outcomes across the economics curriculum and are increasingly being used. They offer the "just right" option that gives a middle way between too little and too much focus on software in an economics course.
