Abstract

Students learn to count, read and write numbers in the decimal system for the first seven years of their schooling. They also learn how to read analogue clocks and use Roman numerals, and they may come across words such as feet, dozen and pound. If they are to gain a good understanding and appreciation of the decimal base system, it is desirable that they are exposed to other number base systems like binary and hexadecimal, and do some operations in non-positional systems like the Roman system.
