Data-logging with BBC micro:bits and MakeCode for modelling with Excel and GeoGebra.

Recent developments in MakeCode now make data-capture from micro:bits very simple via the USB cable.  The data can be graphed in real time in MakeCode and exproted as CSV files.  Using tools such as Excel and GeoGebra's Spreadsheet View, the data can be manipulated, analysed and modelled.  With a pair of...

Modems unplugged - sound representation

All data on computers is stored and transmitted using the binary number system.
