# EUSES Spreadsheet Problems for Teachers

## Estimation

These problems were created as part of the EUSES research studies about teaching students to use spreadsheets. The full archive of problems can be found at the EUSES Spreadsheet Education Problems page.

They have proven useful and helpful to students so we post them here for free use by teachers. Primarily these problems are of the level of middle to high school students and feature math concepts taught through the use of spreadsheets.
