This work sheet explains how to convert decimal numbers to its binary equivalent and back again with explanations and small but progressively more difficult tasks. The end task is a code breaker exercise that can lead on to pupils making their own secret codes in binary once they understand the process.
This has been used for both Key Stage 3 and 4 to great effect with pupils showing good understanding after working through the worksheet. It would be suitable as part of a new KS3 curriculum or potentially a computing one off lesson and can also be used as part of theory delivery to GCSE Computing.
