Getting Start with Apex Triggers: adding custom field

On the 'Getting Started with Apex Triggers' challenge you have to add a custom checkbox field - Match_Billing_Address__c. Can this be done through the user inteface by editing the Accunts object?
On the Beginner Developer Trail I came in at 'Apex Basics and Database'. I don't recall seeing how to add new fields to objects.
Can someone pont me to the resource that tells me how to add a custom checkbox field?
Thanks,
Vin
