Socratic Method Used to Teach Binary Numbers

“The following is a transcript of a teaching experiment, using the Socratic method, with a regular third grade class in a suburban elementary school.”

The experiment was to see whether I could teach these students binary arithmetic (arithmetic using only two numbers, 0 and 1) only by asking them questions. None of them had been introduced to binary arithmetic before. ”
