I have fond memories of sitting at my kitchen table as a child drawing maze after maze always hoping that my next maze would be the one that nobody could solve. Now one of my favorite times of the school year is when I can teach my students some rudimentary skills in Excel by having them create a maze. If your goal is to teach or to learn Excel, you may find this of interest, and have some fun in the process.
Things You Will NeedA Microsoft Windows based computer with Excel installed.
Step 2Hold the [Shift] key down on your keboard. "Don't let go until the end of step 3"
Step 5In Step 3 we learned that holding down the [Shift] key while clicking on the first and last of anything in Windows will select everything in between. Again this is a contiguous selection. Holding down the [Ctrl] key and clicking on individual cells will select only those cells that you have clicked on. This is a non-contiguous selection.
Click back into cell A1 and then press and hold the [Ctrl] key. Note: do not stop pressing the [Ctrl] key until you are done clicking on cells.
Step 7Click on the Fill Button (see picture) and all of the selected cells will turn black. Note: the default color for the Fill Tool is yellow so be sure to change it to black. Click the down arrow located to the right of the Fill Button to get your pallete.
Keep repeating Steps 6 and 7 until your maze is complete.
I hope you find this interesting and useful.
