I taught myself how a year ago when I was in 8th grade, but it was an extremely vague understanding. It'd take me quite a few minutes to convert, say, 145 to binary. But now I understand it a little better, and am able to come up with 10010001 relatively fast (that is
it, right?) Then base 8, base 16, etc. etc. came almost naturally to me; though I have a hard time, compared to base 10, multiplying them and stuff. We don't really have any good computer classes in my school
. Gotta take one on Powerpoint and stuff next year, then I have the option to take a year of C++, that's about it. Honestly, I don't even know what CSS & CISCO are. (Unless you're talking about Counter Strike...lawlz0rz, jk)
But at first, I was like, "how does C*E=A8??? that makes no sense." That's how all my friends are now when I try to explain it to them. Almost like their faces when our teacher taught them the concept negative numbers.
Can't wait to see how they react to i
I know that there's weirder stuff than that, it's just that's about the weirdest concept I know as of right now. (I'm a tad ahead of the others in my math classes...all started when my brother taught me multiplication in preschool...
call me a nerd if it makes you happy)
