Task 3: Data- RepresentationCategory
Binary Baubles lesson plans from Code.org
This is a Mathematics Pre-Test I created on Plicker, https://www.plickers.com for a Year Four unit. This website allows you to create an individual QR code for each student. You create tests and activities and the students answer by holding up their code. Using your phone you scan the position of the QR code and this logs against each student the answer they choose and if it was correct. As a teacher you also can views the resu…
Task 3: Data – Representation
Option 2: Describe a classroom activity that involves students encoding and decoding data.
Encoding and decoding
Explain how coding and decoding works. Provide a couple of examples to the class as a whole and do an example together. Give out worksheet for students to work through.

Task 3: Data – Representation
Option 2: A form of coding information that both children and adults enjoy using socially is the use of emtocons. If you have Year 5 or 6 student acts that have access to iPads, the Microsoft Word App allows you to use Apples increasing variety of emoticons. Students could "code" a story that they have written using emoticons in place of certain words, including emotive words or language features (similes, metaphors etc.). Once complete, students could swap stories and have someone else attempt to 'decode' the…
This is an introductory lesson for binary numbers.
Year 5 / 6
1. Why do computers use binary numbers?
2. What does it mean when we say the binary numbers system i…
#cserTask3 I have been fortunate enough to visit a number of schools over the years and in some of the hallways and entrances of schools I often saw photographs and art that were adorning the walls. In some cases when asking the origin of the art or who was in the old photograph, there was some uncertainty about their backgrounds.
In a number of cases I have worked with teachers and students to take some of these images and works of art and then explore …
Task 3: Data Representation
Here is a link to the Hour of Code website, particularly the unplugged Binary Bracelet lesson. Here students learn how to write their name using binary code. It contains teacher information, a video and printable resources.
CS Unplugged. So many great activities to get your students involved. Started my class on Binary Numbers. We watched an entertaining video (see link below) that had them laughing and singing along. We then started off with the first activity from CS unplugged using dotted cards and secret messages. The Binary Game app was also useful for the girls to use to consolidate their understanding of binary numbers. #cserTask3
A great site filled with cryptography resources – I particularly like the task where students make a caesar code wheel and use it to help create their own code sequence to have peers decrypt. #cserTask3
