The Binary #MicDropMath Patterns lesson can be used to help students recognize patterns, understand how to make multiple hypotheses in science and math, and understand the importance of basing claims on more data rather than less.
It also serves as an introduction to the binary number system.

You will need one set of the 0-31 cards per student. Sort them into stacks of cards that
are the same – all the cards with 1 in the top left corner together, all the cards with 2 in
the top left corner together, and so on.
You will need one set of the 0-63 cards per student. Keep these in complete sets of six
cards. It is best to print the 0-31 and 0-63 cards on two different colors of paper so they
can be easily sorted.
