    My professor for my computing internals class is a worthless prick and can't teach anything in a coherent manner. And I suppose worthless teachers choose worthless textbooks because our book has 1 whole page dedicated to this concept and not a single example :rolleyes: Can someone recommend a good site that explains step by step on converting floating points to and from binary? I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it has examples, but it doesn't actually explain anything, kinda like my teacher. Something that has a ton of examples and step by step instructions would be handy. Thanks.

    Well these are the lecture notes I have on the subject, I dunno how useful they will be.

    If you put the Mac Calculator into Programmer mode (View==>Programmer) it displays the binary version of a number.
