Description

Course Description Icon

Prior to this lesson students will have a strong understanding of the various types of numbers and that we must convert various objects in the world into some of these types of number. It's time to go beyond just numbers. We begin this journey with words.

Words and sentences in text are created from characters. All characters are stored in computers using a special code. A character encoding provides a key to unlock (ie. crack) the code.  


A Summary

Minimum Grade 3rd grade. Students should understand what Binary is already and how to count in Binary. They should feel comfortable discussing all the places in the world they interact with data (looking at maps, reading texts, seeing a list of emails).
Complexity Level Easy
Length 20 minutes / Class
Subject Area Encoding characters

Target Audience

We think this material can be understand by students as young as 3rd grade.

Testing?

YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons, there will be a test after this lesson.

The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material mixed with tests and games. The remaining 5 minutes for testing or retesting.

You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around.
