Math IAs- can I reference the word doc to MS excel?

Hi,

I have solved all my equations using MS Excel and have hardly shown any working in the Math IAs. I think you are supposed to show all the stages of your working in the assignment, but Excel does all the steps automatically once you type in the formula. I have copied the Excel formulas and mentioned them in the footnotes as references, but they involve Excel cell addresses which I dont think would make sense to a reader who is not reading it on the Excel sheet but reading it out of context on MS Word.

Can I attach the excel sheets along with the IA doc or images in appendices? Does IB get a hard copy of the doc or a soft copy?

Thanks a lot (:

Pls reply ASAP, it's due tonight.

Do the IA in word, you don't have to get so complicated and force your work to look neat. Just use simple notations in microsoft word.

I recommend also writing the mathematical steps and process to show that you do know how to calculate (e.g. standard deviation) without the need for excel :) However, i think the IB also likes the use of technology so maybe integrate both :)
