Option 3: Create or share a resource to support a classroom or professional development learning activity about binary OR digital data. This could be a worksheet, a poster, a book, a game or any other idea!
Students use binary to provide on and off images as a representation of how computers store data.
- Explain to students that they have just created an image pattern using ‘pixels’.
- A computer represents this by using two numbers: 1s and 0s. In the picture, 1 represents the white colour (on) and 0 represents the black colour (off).
- Go to the Binary and Data Representation. On the site pixels, bitmaps and binary numbers are explained.
