The architecture course is almost universally disliked by students. This has nothing to do with reality but is instead rooted in the idea that it will be, and I quote, "pure,dead hard like".

One tool I'll be using to help explain different number systems is this binary clock application. Working in the same way as the binary watches that are widely available at Geeks'R'Us it shows the time using simulated LEDs. If nothing else it should be good for a fun five minutes in class.
