An Excel worksheet is where you type data and formulas in cells. It is also where you can place charts, pictures, drawing shapes, ActiveX controls, external data ranges,...etc.

Microsoft Excel Worksheet Overview

A worksheet contains rows and columns and is designated by a tab in an Excel workbook file. A worksheet is comprised of cells that are arranged in a grid like pattern. A worksheet cell is formed by the intersection of a row and column. Worksheet cells can store data and perform calculations using formulas. When typing information on an Excel worksheet, cells are referred to by their row and column index. For example, if you wanted to tell a user to type in the cell next to Price in the picture below you would say type in cell B1.
