Description

Course Description Icon

We save Base 2 for last since this is our primary number system that we deal with in Computing.

The use of binary numbers date back to ancient Egypt, but it was 17th-century philosopher and mathematician, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who created the current binary number system used today.  


A Summary

Minimum Grade Best for students 3rd grade and up
Complexity Level Medium
Length 20 minutes / Class
Subject Area Base 2

Target Audience

3rd Grade

Students need to be pretty good at counting for this lesson. They should know 0 to 9, all their tens, hundreds, thousands, millions.

This concept can be a little foreign to students in 2nd and 3rd Grade. It CAN be understood by some but not all. Use your discrection. If you have a student that is a wiz at numbers, then this class might just be for them.


Testing?

YES, very much so. Students will be given a series of binary numbers and will need to convert them to decimal. Students will also be expected to convert a decimal number back to a binary number.
