Course Description

“Your budget is a living document.” ​​–Joel Kwabi
Creating a personal, business, project, or grant budget can be done in many different ways, but using a program such as Excel or Google Sheets makes calculation, organization, and sharing decidedly easier. Using a sample budget from Kay Takeda’s video on personal budgeting (check it out!), math educator Joel Kwabi goes through step-by-step instructions on how to use Google Sheets to build a quick and easy spreadsheet. After watching, you’ll have the foundational skills to understand and draw inspiration from the budgets of others and be empowered to evaluate and produce more complicated and personalized budgets on your own.

This lesson consists of a 12-minute video and the opportunity to create your own spreadsheets which could take 10 minutes to over an hour.
