Part of Lesson Plan: Binary 2- 11 Cheers for Binary! How Computers Count.
Activity Overview / Details
Hand out the paper “Binary Worksheet” attached below. In this worksheet, they will count from 0 to 255 using 8-bit numbers. Explain to them that that’s how computers think- in groups of 8 bits, or bytes. If you feel it’s helpful, have them fill out the leading zeroes in the bytes so their numbers will look like what a computer would see.
