Program Description

Written to support distance learning but also useful for physically distanced teaching, a Tech-Up Learning Kit contains resources for both synchronous and/or asynchronous lessons. The teacher guide walks you through leading student activities over a series of sessions of approximately 30-45 minutes. Student activities are handouts for students to work through on their own as assigned, according to your own timeline and discretion.

In these activities, learners in Grades 4-6 will explore how binary code can be used to represent images while exploring reflections and transformations. They will be invited to share their binary code with their peers and work from each other’s codes. They will start with binary code for simple two-toned images and then work their way into coding four-toned images with possible extensions into how all colours are coded in binary for computers to use.

This kit contains resources for both synchronous and asynchronous lessons.

Tech-Up Learning Specialists are available to support you with these kits.

  • Polygons are closed shapes with similar attributes that can be described, measured, and compared.
  • Regular changes in patterns can be identified and represented using tools and tables.
  • Closed shapes have area and perimeter that can be described, measured, and compared.
  • Computational fluency and flexibility with numbers extend to operations with larger (multi-digit) numbers.
  • Computational fluency and flexibility with numbers extend to operations with whole numbers and decimals.
  • Properties of objects and shapes can be described, measured, and compared using volume, area, perimeter, and angles.
