Introduction to Binary Numbers

This is a one-period (50 minute) lesson that introduces the concept of base two numbers. It is intended for grades 6-10, but has been used successfully with third graders. The lecture material has a Coleman-Liau Index of six.

This material is based on an exercise from CS Unplugged. It is intended primarily for teachers, but it is available for anyone to use for teaching and learning.

I can present this material in person at schools in the Atlanta area.  It is also packaged as a teachers' kit that will let teachers present it with minimal preparation.

My availability calendar is on line. Please contact me at the address above. The only requirement is that a teacher must be present during the presentation and be responsible for classroom management. I will provide a set of binary cards for each student; I ask that the school duplicate copies of the handout for each student.
