Over the weekend we did a fun Family Math project about decimals in other bases:
As I was putting my younger son to bed last night he asked me about decimals in base 4. I don’t know why – our previous conversation had been about how to play the golf game on the Wii – but something about the weekend talk had obviously stuck with him.
This morning we had some fun with a specific number – 0.111111….. (repeating forever). What does this number equal in different bases? It was a fun and unusual way to review decimals:
the Vi Hart video we reference at the end is here:
I love mornings like this!
