A Level Computer Science: Binary
This module contains:
Compatible with the following examination boards
A computer has many electronic components that work as switches. These components have two logics as input and output: ON and OFF. A similar logic is used to represent data in binary form. ON is represented as 1 and OFF is represented as 0.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces binary to your students, explaining:
- The binary representation of numbers
- Understand the units of computer memory
- Converting denary numbers to binary system and vice versa
- Adding binary numbers
- Binary shifts
- Bitwise operations
- Representing negative numbers in a binary system
