Hexadecimal coloring

Probably most of us have heard of and even used hexadecimal color codes. Don't you wonder why their number descriptions really make sense?

In this activity we first ask students to color in our Golden Spiral by giving them the hexadecimal codes of the colors that we want them to use.  Then we help them begin to understand which number weights between 00 and FF have the strongest values and how they blend.

All of our digital devices use light blending to create colors.  Why not begin to understand how that works.  Enjoy!


For members we have an editable Word docx and solutions with added questions.
