The Great Number Hunt (Sorted) (Ages 8-10)

Rating
0.0 stars

Guide students to discuss the algorithm or process that they would use to find a value in a sorted list and how that would be different in an unsorted list. Help them to recognise that the best way to search the sorted list is to do a binary search: it does matter what order they actually look at the books.

The Great Number Hunt (Unsorted) (Ages 8-10)

Rating
0.0 stars

Guide students to discuss the algorithm or process that they would use to find a value in an unsorted list and how that would be harder than in a sorted list. Help them to recognise that the only way to search the unsorted list is to go through every item (whether they choose randomly or look at the first, then second, then third…) because they are still just checking and eliminating one at a time.

How binary digits work (Ages 5 to 7)

Rating
0.0 stars

Did you know that right in the inside of any computer there are billions (that’s a really really big number) of little tiny things that can be turned on or off, like a light switch, and that when you have lots of these things together they can display a number or a letter or a movie or make up your favourite game on your device? So let’s look at how they work. Now we need to pretend that we are so incredibly small that we are now inside a computer and we are making the computer show a number.

How binary digits work (Ages 8-10)

Rating
4.0 stars

Explain to students that we're working with just two digits, so they are called binary digits. They are so common that we have a short name for them: write "binary digit" on a piece of paper, then rip off the "bi" at the start, and the "t" at the end, put it together and ask what the combined word ("bit") spells. This is the short name for a binary digit, so the 5 cards that they have are actually 5 bits.

Place the 15 searching squares on a table. Explain that we have 15 different numbers, one on each card. Show that one side has an animal on it and the other a number. Under each of these cards is a number that you can’t see, and they aren’t in order. The numbers range from 1 to 15. Can you find the card with the number 12?
