Matics 3: Binary Numbers
Now that children have been introduced to the decimal system and Base Ten, the Matics move on to binary mumbers. The binary number system works the same way as the decimal system, except it contains only two digits, 0 and 1. Here children see binary numbers arrive on the scene and Max Matic tricks the Squirks into grouping together to help signal the difference between noon and midnight.
Matics 4: Primitive Computer
Having been introduced to binary numbers, children now can lean in simple terms how the first computer came to be. Here they see Max Matic discovers that Squirks have an input and an output, as well as an electrical state of either one or zero; so he arranges them into codes, which results in the first primitive computer. 00/10DE PI 30 min.
