For students needing longer with each concept, here is a three-year schedule that shows you how to complete both books in 3 years.
Binary and Hexadecimal Notes
Understanding other bases is not a crucial concept; so long as students really grasps place value, you can let them move on.
However, understanding other bases can help solidify the meaning of place value–and it’s pretty cool! Here’s an example of a hands-on idea for teaching the hexadecimal system. You could follow a similar approach for the binary system.

I also purchased the e-course which has a video for each of the lessons, which we found very helpful. You will also find a few corrections and additional resources here. […]
