Diving into Binary

Last week at Oakwood, in Computer Science we have been delving deeper into binary representation and looking at how to convert between not only binary (0’s and 1’s) and decimal (0-9) but also up to hexadecimal and even into character sets Students have been decrypting messages, associating colours to images, and completing mathematic equations in binary.

As the saying goes, there are 10 types of people in the world… those that understand binary and those that don’t….Or as our students would say… 10111111 = BF = 191!
