Suggestion: Make base ten chart showing ones, tens, hundreds, thousands etc something like this using both names and exponents Lets convert 28 to binary for example: 10,000's 1000's 100's tens ones 10^4  10^3  10^2  10^1  10^0      2  8                          16's 8's 4's 2's ones  2^4  2^3  2^2  2^1  2^0   1  1  1  0  0 (16+8+4=28)=28                         If you need more help, then let me know and I can expand on this. I might suggest a calculator such as the HP 6s has binary, octal and hexidecimal conversion keys on them. I would suggest using an aid like that to help. The HP 6s is also a very nice inexpensive scientific calculator suitable for all science classes.
