Binary Dot Cards – Randomly Generated

THE GOAL


To familiarize students with the most basic computer language (binary), done in the most basic way! Simple, easy-to-understand, visuals make it fun for all students to learn!

.

WHAT IT IS


This is a program (and Excel program) that randomly generates binary cards AND answers!! All you need to do is hit “Enter” and then the cards randomly shuffle! This is so fun to play as a review game, or speed challenge!

.

FITS ANY LESSON!


Great as an introductory lesson, review, assessment, or a whole class game! This is a great addition to any lesson plan having to do with binary!

.

GOOD FOR ALL AGES!


Can be used as young as elementary school all the way into college classes! The easy-to-understand visuals are great for students who have never been introduced to binary before, whereas the other pages in the file eliminate the visuals for higher levels of students.

.

INCLUDES


• 5 worksheets (3 different levels) that seamlessly flow from one level of understanding binary, to another!

○ Binary to Base 10, using Dot Cards
○ Binary to Base 10, without the use of Dot Cards
○ Base 10 to Binary (all the way up to 511!)

• Teacher Answer Sheets (to each level!)

.

DIFFERENTIATION


• Dot Cards are great visuals that are amazing for all learners!
• All the levels seamlessly flow from one to another.

.

PERSONAL USE


When I used this with my classes, students (of all learning levels) easily understood how the binary system works.

Before I created this, I tried to explain binary by writing the numbers on the board and also by drawing the pictures myself (I am definitely, not an artist)… but the numbers didn’t really make sense to most students and then my hand-drawn pictures always took too long to put on the board, so I ended up losing the majority of the class’ attention.
I worked with very difficult students, and I was amazed at how ALL of them were able to understand the graphics with very little explanation.
