Binary Code with Beads
This week in the Learning Commons some classes learned about Binary Coding. We used beads and coding charts to recreate our initials in Binary Code. These are on display in the hallway.
If time is limited, have all the strings ‘started’ with a bead tied on already to go at the bottom. These can take some classes longer to complete than you might think. A challenge, or for a class with longer time, would be to add the periods or middle initials as well. Label the ends with the students initials and ‘Binary Coding’ on labels. This is also a quick way to ‘tie off’ the strand. I used pearler beads which are inexpensive and make for a nice straight binary representation.
