In this lesson, students delete parts of a table, including cells, rows, and columns. In addition, they clear data. Clearing data erases data contained in cells without changing the structure of the table. The distinction might be confusing for some students, so you might want to discuss the difference between deleting and clearing after the lesson.
Students are introduced to the concept of a range of cells. Keep in mind that a range can include any contiguous group of cells.
Students are told that table titles should be short and descriptive; therefore, you might want to be prepared to give examples or opinions regarding what constitutes a short and descriptive title.
