Base-2 Counter (binary)

Project: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/160588454/

Ideas:

  1. Remix to show the base-10 (decimal) equivalent number of binary number being displayed (one way to do is done in the above example)
  2. Remix to not show leading zeros
  3. Remix or rewrite to count in another base
  4. Rewrite to count in base-2 only using a single sprite (see also base-10 counter)

Example Curriculum: Ontario Grade 4-6 mathematics, NSN Strand 

Note: This activity is appropriate for grade 4-8 or for any student in any grade who is ready and interested in exploring the concept of place value using Scratch.

Creating a place value counter in Scratch in base-10 and in another base can consolidate understanding of place value concepts to a high degree of understanding.
