Binary

Want to learn computer-speak? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you all about the binary system, the language of computers! Discover how binary differs from the base-10 number system that us humans tend to use (with the numbers 0 through 9) and why computers find it much easier to stick with binary. You’ll also see what binary has to do with switches as well as how, exactly, to read binary or create a number using the binary system. Zeroes and ones all day long — what fun!
