Section 1: Introduction to EXCEL 2016 charting features

In this section, we will cover the basics of the features that will use for creating charts.


The project file name is ProjectNewChartingtoolsExcel2016.   I added new datafiles for you to use for the project work. The name of the sheet in the file tells you what needs to be done. Exemple: Boxplot  (do a boxplot comparing men and women literacy rate for all countries in the world).  For histogram, you only need to do  the histogram of the total literacy rate.
When you are done or if you need help, please contact me.
