Simple Block Graphics using Spreadsheets (and Binary bits)

(0)
This is my take on getting students to use their simple binary knowledge (they have looked at binary and how up to 5 bits works) and now it’s time to take this knowledge and use a simple task (1 bit binary which means two colours) and then progressing to 3 bit combinations (allowing for 8 colours). There are two spreadsheets that can be used which are available here and these can be shared with students. Task 1 is a simple 10 X 10 grid with 2 colours Task 2 is a 15 X 15 grid that allows 8 colours to be used The aim of all my resources is to provide lessons / activities of good quality that will add value to your lessons / schemes of work without any extra planning.
