The Binary Birthday Magic Trick is an exciting starter activity to get students thinking about Binary numbers.
If possible you may wish to print paper copes of the first slide for each student.
Hint: Once a student tells you which cards their birthday number appears on, add up the card numbers on the third slide to find their birthday!
Duration: 10 minutes
Teaches: binary numbers, numeracy
