Label these worksheets: SHUFFLE, COINS, FACTORIAL

Step 3: SHUFFLE worksheet

Copy the names of the cards in column b (look below to find the names of the cards)

control + "=" calculates a new random number

Every place you see a "0" or a "1" type in this function "=TRUNC(RAND()+0.5)"

Step 5: FACTORIAL worksheet
Type the following text.  Notice the function. Start in A1
X	X! (X FACTORIAL)
1	=FACT(A2)
2	=FACT(A3)
3	=FACT(A4)
4	=FACT(A5)
5	=FACT(A6)
6	=FACT(A7)
7	=FACT(A8)
8	=FACT(A9)
9	=FACT(A10)
10	=FACT(A11)
20	=FACT(A12)
30	=FACT(A13)
40	=FACT(A14)
50	=FACT(A15)
52 =FACT(A16)

If you know how to fill down you can save your self some time.

Step 6:  Get the worksheet from C. Coleman and get directions from CC on
