Rebecca Perry (Bekstar)▸ Task 3: Data- Representation


Task 3. Option 3: The binary number system is a base-2 number system. This means it only has two numbers: 0 and 1. All information in a computer (words, pictures, movies, sound) is stored and transmitted as sequences of bits, or binary digits.

A bit is a single piece of data which can be thought of as either zero or one. Each binary number is made up of bits, for example, the number 1010 is made of 4 bits. When you have 8 bits altogether, this is known as a byte. A byte may look like the number 01000100 and in this case represents the letter 'D'.

This online resource is perfect for Year 5/6. The students developed an understanding of how computers store and send digital images and they are able to represent images in a digital format.
