This module uses a combination of discussion and participant involvement to learn about the differences between analog and binary representations of information. Since computers use a binary numbering system, participants learn how to count in binary.

The goal of this activity is to illustrate the basics of working with the binary numbering system.

A nice list of quantities of bits and what they are equivalent to.

The purpose of this activity is to introduce students to the concept of binary coding as a language and its practical applications in digital and communication systems.This project is intended to give students a deeper appreciation for communication systems and an understanding of how binary symbols are used to transmit information.
