In this introductory lesson on number systems, we learn about the history behind how numbers came about and how we represent them today. From using tokens to represent quantities to creating symbols that can be universally understood, we explore the various ways in which people count and categorize numbers, including binary, decimal, and hexadecimal systems. We also learn about the significance of the zero symbol and how it helps us differentiate between different quantities. Overall, this lesson provides a basic understanding of numbers and their representation that is essential for understanding more complex mathematical concepts.
