Place Value (Beyond Base 10)

This is just a preview! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships until September 6th. Join today!
 

To better understand place value, we venture beyond the decimal number system and explore a Base 9 system. Students will be exposed to ancient Babylon’s Base 60 system and computers’ Binary and Hexadecimal before creating their own number system!

This lesson includes 4 videos for students to work through independently.

Place value is something we cover in elementary school. It seems simple, but I'd wager that very few adults really understand the topic. I sure didn't until I worked with non-base-10 number systems in college. Your students can get a taste of this mind-boggling experience by imagining what it would be like if we didn't have the number 9. What would each digit represent then?

The registration window closes on September 6th
