REThink Day 3, Binary, Hex, and Project Proposals

We spent this morning as a group covering intro to Computer Science. Many of the people here teach computer science, so they completely understand these concepts. For me, it was a day of a lot of learning. We used Dr. Jeffrey Popyack’s website as reference material for the learning.

I learned about binary numbers, hex, and converting binary to hex. We demonstrated our knowledge on a lab. We spent time creating banners from our letters encoded in hex. I made one with my name.






We also talked at length about the new AP CS Principles course. This new Advanced Placement course will take place in the 2016-2017 school year. For a lot more resources, look here.

We spent the afternoon working on project proposals. I will be sharing mine tomorrow.
