Abstract

Teaching decision sciences to non-technical students presents numerous challenges. It is well-established that spreadsheets can overcome one such challenge by facilitating the teaching of technical topics in a more user-friendly manner than algebraic expressions can. However, despite their advantages in terms of user-friendliness, a major challenge when constructing spreadsheet models is documentability.
