Uno 18, No. 61, 45-54 (2012).
Summary: Spreadsheets are very powerful tools for tackling interesting problems that are normally avoided at secondary and baccalaureate level because students do not have enough mathematics knowledge to solve them with pen and pencil. This paper presents ten problems, some complicated and all able to be tackled with a spreadsheet (in this case, Excel). The idea is that once students know how to approach the problem, they can solve it.
