Description: This simulation checks your knowledge of converting a decimal number to a fixed-point binary representation
Keywords: binary, fixed point, base-2, base-10, conversion between bases
Learning Objectives: After successful completion of running the simulation with the student would be able to 1) check if they know how to convert a base-10 number to a fixed-point representation. With enough tries and first having looked at the resources, they should be able to master the conversion.
Full Resources: The full resources for the topic of the fixed-point binary representation are given here which include textbook content, a PowerPoint presentation, a multiple-choice test, audiovisual lectures, and application examples.
Software Requirements: Latest versions of Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome.
