Summary

Project:
In this project you will use colored beads representing 1's & 0's to create a key ring holder with your initials written in binary.

Background:
All computers operate on a binary number system. That is a number system that is represented by 0 and 1. In a computer, which is electronic, everything is stored in millions or switches which are either On or Off. When the switch is On it is represented by a 1. When it is Off it is represented by a 0.

There are 10 numbers (0-9) in the number system we use everyday. A number system based on 10 numbers is called a decimal system. The number system based on only 2 numbers (0-1) is called the binary number system.
