Some people think that the Models of the Atom worksheet is a basic, one-size-fits-all design. Not so! I guarantee that there is plenty of designs available to make your work with the format even more effective. The results will be well worth the time and effort you put into designing your charts, and more charts.
Okay, so we’ve talked about the Models of the Atom worksheet and the subjects to consider when designing your workbook. Let’s talk about designing the worksheet itself. Consider this quote from an old Carl Chinn article. He said: “The workbook format has been used since 1969, but there’s no telling when it’ll go mainstream.” So what does that mean?
In other words, this means that for years, many different formats have been created for the purpose of teaching students how to use the format. Many of those formats were eventually abandoned, but some are still in use today. If one format becomes the mainstream of the format, it’s unlikely that a new one will be created in its place.
This means that even though the format is now the format, there is still a logical step between now and then. That logical step is to add a few more formats to make the process easier.
What are those formats? Let’s consider two common cases. These are the worksheet template.
A worksheet can be described as a specific shape of paper that is often used as the grid in the charting of data. The key issue is that the worksheet must fit perfectly within the range of the chart’s lines. The other consideration is that the worksheet must be of the same width as the lines being plotted. Most students learn the basics of worksheets by seeing their entire worksheet as part of the overall chart. They should also see how their data fits within the worksheet.
A worksheet template is just that, a worksheet template. It is designed to be used as a template when creating the template or worksheet itself. Once the overall chart is ready, it is no longer necessary to take the exact shape of the worksheet as a template. Therefore, it is possible to make the worksheet the template.
Then, once the worksheet template is ready, you can then create the chart by copying or pasting data from the worksheet to the chart. The best part is that you do not need to modify the worksheet template at all. When the charts are ready, the only thing you will need to do is to click on them to copy. The model of the atom worksheet is something that is not “fixed” in one piece, but can be modified, added, or changed depending on what you want to do with it.
