Binary Acknowledgement of Country

In this learning sequence we explore data representation, learning about the way data in the form of text can be represented in binary (on and off states). In using the context of Acknowledgement of Country, we explore First Nations Australian language or group names written digitally as symbols and using a long thread of beads.

This learning sequence was developed in collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance (ATSIMA).
