3.1SIMPLE CALCULATIONS IN MICROSOFT EXCEL
Microsoft Excel can be used to perform simple calculations like the
average, addition, subtraction, division and other simple calculations.
Example 1: To calculate the sum of numbers in row 1 to row 10 in
column A, we perform the following procedures:
To achieve the above, you place your mouse pointer in the row where
you want the answer to display then type in =sum (a1:a10) and press enter
key, then the answer will be displayed.

7
Example 2: To calculate the average of numbers in row 1 to row 10 in
column B, we perform the following procedures:
To achieve the above, you place your mouse pointer in the row where
you want the answer to display then type in =average (b1:b10) and press enter
key, then the answer will be displayed.
Example 3: To calculate the total numbers (count) of numbers in row 1
to row 10 in column C, we perform the following procedures:
To achieve the above, you place your mouse pointer in the row where
you want the answer to display then type in =count (c1:c10) and press enter
key, then the answer will be displayed.
Example 4: To calculate the maximum number in row 1 to row 10 in
column D, we perform the following procedures:

COMPUTER OPERATION

SOFTWARE
Software is the collection of computer programs and related data that
provide the instructions telling a computer what to do.
It can also be referred to as one or more computer programs and data
held in the storage of the computer for some purposes. Software is intangible,
meaning it "cannot be touched".
Examples of computer software include: System software, Application
software, Device Drivers and so on.
HARDWARE
Computer hardware refers to the physical parts of a computer and
related devices. Internal hardware devices include motherboards, hard drives,
and RAM. External hardware devices include monitors, keyboards, mouse,
printers and scanners.
6.1 STARTING UP THE SYSTEM
Starting up the system refers to the process of booting the system. In
booting the system the following procedures are taken: after making sure the
switch is on from the wall, the stabilizer is on and everything is set, press the
start button on the system unit and the computer starts booting.
SHUTTING DOWN THE SYSTEM
Shutting down the computer system refers to switching off the computer system. To
achieve this, the following procedures are taken into consideration.
• Click Start

9
• Point to turn off
• Click turn off
• Click turn off again
We have “Normal” and “Abnormal” shutdown.
Normal Shutdown: Is the right way of shutting down the computer i.e.
following the normal process of shutting down the computer.
Abnormal Shutdown: Is the wrong way of shutting down the computer i.e.
not following the normal process of shutting down the computer fighter by
pressing the start button to switch it off or switching off the socket directly.
LAUNCHING APPLICATION PACKAGES
Launching Application Packages can simply be referred to as starting
up an Application Package. This is done by clicking on the start button,
pointing to all programs and locating the Application Package you want to
open.
For example, launching Microsoft Word you click on Start button, point
to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, locate Microsoft Word and click
it.
FEATURES OF DESKTOP
The major features of desktop are:

CHARPTER THREE

PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED

Despite the benefits attached to the SIWES program, few problems were still
encountered during the course of the program. Some of these problems are:
• Lack of transportation fare which at times made it difficult for me to get
to my place of program
• Harassment from the customers when you are unable to complete their
jobs as expected due to circumstances beyond your control.
• Harassment from the Director of the organization whenever I come late
due to scarcity of transport means.
• Inadequate power supply and power interruption
• Distance from SIWES venue

CHAPTER FOUR

CONCLUSION
Conclusively, I will like to say that it takes determination for one to become
anything in life. With these training, students should determine and have the ultimate
aim of becoming somebody in life.
While on the programme, students must try to behave well and be ready and willing
to learn so that they will be exposed to the practical aspect of what they are being
taught in their various institutions.
Finally, government and establishment should give their support as at when
due, so as to encourage the students.
Incompetence in workplace is related to the kind or quality of training in the school.
To improve on the scheme’s implementation, students should be placed in industries
relevant to their fields of study. There is need for greater cooperation between
industries and educational institutions on how best to implement the SIWES
programme. It can thus be concluded that in spite of apparent economic difficulties,
the SIWES in Nigerian Institutions are attaining its objectives; and that industrial
experience in real setting is very necessary if the attainment of SIWES objectives
will be fully realized because it offers the students leaning experiences which cannot
be directly gained in the class room.

12
RECOMMENDATION
The operation of SIWES lies on the proper supervision. Thus, it becomes
necessary that something must be done at the operational level to enhance adequate
functioning of the programme. In line with these findings, the following
recommendation area made:
1. ITF should ensure the regular visitation of the ITF officers to Supervising
Agencies Institutions, employers and students on attachment.
2. The log-book issued to students at attachment by institutions must be checked and
signed by the institutions’ and ITF Supervisors responsible during supervision not in
their offices at the end of attachment.
3. All the institutions involved should be organizing orientation courses in
collaboration with the ITF for their students prior to their attachment with the
attendance made mandatory for the students accepted for SIWES and ITF staff.
4. The training department of ITF should be providing adequate information about
the biennial SIWES National Conference and Workshops on time.
