Setting up Google Sheets:

1. Login to your google account. (If you don’t have a google account, just visit google and sign up - takes a few minutes but it’s well worth it! & it's Free!)

2. Open a new tab in your browser and search for google drive, then open it.

(For those unfamiliar, google drive is just a free place for storing files on the web - and it’s an especially great place for files you need to work on collaboratively with others.)

3. Create your first sheet by clicking on NEW, then go down to google sheets.

and Ta daa! Your sheet is being created before your very eyes! It may not look like much… but this little sheet is extraordinarily powerful. Lets go straight to the next lecture to begin exploring this extraordinarily powerful tool.
