Practical Binary Shift Activity -  Information and Practice

Binary Shift Information and Practice Activities

This resource consists of a basic explanation of binary shifts (left and right) showing illustarted examples of how to perform the operations.

There are also examples and activities to complete.

The resource is linked to two videos that show how to perform the shift operations using 1 and 0’s. The practical activities are best performed by representing the 1 and 0’s on the printed sheet using plastic spoons, buttons, lollipop sticks with 1 and 0 written on them (or any other way to represent to 1 or the 0).

The activity has deliberately been devised to be hands-on.

Useful for KS3 and KS4 GCSE Computer Studies
