  1. Bits, Bytes, and Units Of Measurement Created By, Ms. Jennifer Duke

  2. How do people Use the terms bits and bytes? Some people might say: “This computer has a 64-bit processor with 4 Gigabytes of RAM and 200 Gigabytes of hard disk space.”

  3. How do people Use the terms bits and bytes? Some people might say: “My parents played Atari (8-bit) and I play Nintendo (64-bit).” http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Nintendo_64.jpg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Atari-2600-Wood-4Sw-Set.jpg

  4. Key Terms & Prefixes related to storage Some key terms to remember are: Bits Bytes Here are some common prefixes related to storage: KB MB GB TB

  5. BIT The term “bit” comes from shortening the words “binary digit.” A bit is the basic unit of information for computers. Binary means two. 1 or 0 are the only values

  6. BYTE 1 Byte=8 bits Each keyboard character is stored as a Byte. For example: A=01000001

  11. UNITS(From Smallest To Largest) Byte- A group of eight bits. Kb (kilobyte)- about 1000 bytes Mb (megabyte)- about one million bytes Gb (gigabyte)-about one billion bytes Tb (terabyte)- about one trillion bytes Petabyte-1 000 000 000 000 000 bytes Exabyte- 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 bytes Zettabyte-1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 bytes Yottabyte- 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 bytes (named after Yoda) Others include………..Xenottabyte, Shilentnobyte, & Deomegemegrottebyte

  15. How Many Bytes Does your storage device hold? You can check this by right-clicking on the device in “My Computer” and checking its properties. http://www.slideshare.net/jgoldsworth/intro-to-bits-bytes-and-storage

  16. ASSIGNMENT: On Moodle, complete the Bits & Bytes Worksheet and send it to me. When the worksheet is finished, visit the following website to play a game to learn about bits and bytes: http://forums.cisco.com/CertCom/game/binary_game_page.htm
