### Description

Are you looking for a fun activity to engage your upper elementary or middle school students while building a deeper understanding of place value?

Included in this product is a presentation that will give your students a brief introduction to binary coding. This presentation will guide your students through an understanding of what binary numbers are, and will help them make connections between base-2 and base-10.

In addition to the presentation, there are 4 ready to print pages for students to practice turning a Base-10 number into Base-2, and vice versa.

I personally feel that the best part of this activity is that students gain a TRUE understanding of what place value is. AND this is happening all while they are so excited because of the final product they get to create.

Included In This Resource:
*Introductory Presentation to Binary Coding, Base 10 and Base 2
*Place Value Printables - Base 10, Base 2, Base 5.
*Binary Alphabet Chart
*Teacher Tips for Success with this Activity

Not Included In This Resource:
Materials to make bracelets (beads & string). However, I provided a link to the website I purchased my materials from.

*NOTE: This product is not Valentine's Day specific, but is a fun activity to include in your Valentine's Day celebration - while tricking your students into having fun learning awesome math!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 Ã· 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 Ã 100 + 4 Ã 10 + 7 Ã 1 + 3 Ã (1/10) + 9 Ã (1/100) + 2 Ã (1/1000).
