Mathematical Monday 10-11-10

I’m feeling very binary today! That’s probably because yesterday and today have binary dates! 10-10-10 and 10-11-10. Here are some fun binary things to do and think about:

– Bake some binary cookies

– Yesterday’s date 1010101 in binary translates to the decimal number 42. That makes yesterday the answer (but don’t forget, we still don’t know the question.) From GeekDad

– Translate some stuff between binary and letters with this 8-bit encoded ASCII translator, also from GeekDad

– Give your friends a “High 31” by counting on your fingers in binary from Yvette’s Inner Geek

– Get a binary clock so you will be the only one in the room who knows what time it is

– Buy some binary jewelry

11 cheers for binary!

    I’m a big fan of the ThinkGeek t-shirt that says “There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don’t.” Those binary bracelets are a great idea, and really pretty!
