Binary Digits

Teaching Binary Numbers via distance learning.

To help you deliver 123Tech remotely, here is a quick video demonstrating the Binary Digits activity which is usually done in a team of 4, but this variation allows students to practice and learn individually

This activity also strengthens numeracy skills as students learn to convert digits from the numerical system to the binary equivilent.

We have a template (linked below) that you can use online, along with our Binary Calculator template and video featuring our very own Digital Dan who demonstrates for students how to make their very own Binary Calculator.

Resources for this activity:

To run the activity you may also want to use the Binary Numbers presentation used in the video.  You will also need to send your students the Binary Calculator template and share the Digital Dan demonstration video with them too.

The original 123Tech Digital Numbers resource for this activity will also give you more information on the background of this activity 

Dont forget that you can register your Discovery Level students for the 123Tech Challenge free of charge and doing so means once they complete this and the other activities in the challenge they will be awarded a 123Tech Certificate.  To find out more about 123Tech and the Discovery Challenge, please click here
