Binary Logic Activities

Click on the picture below to access a range of activities about binary logic, logic gates, truth tables and Karnaugh maps:

Karnaugh Maps

Karnaugh maps are a tool used to simplify complex boolean expressions. The Karnaugh map reduces the need for extensive calculations by taking advantage of humans’ pattern-recognition capability. Karnaugh maps are used to simplify real-world logic requirements so that they can

Why are there 1024 bytes in a kilobyte? (instead of 1000)

Here is a good brainteaser when teaching binary code… Remember: Computers can only work with binary code. Computers don’t really like the number 1000 because in binary it’s not that straightforward: The binary code for 1000 is 1111101000 However computers
