Geocache Description:


I decided to commemorate the 1 year anniversary of my first find with the hide of my tenth cache. This is the seventh cache in my finite mathematical series. I am a math teacher and thought what better way to educate the public than through cache descriptions.

The cache is not at the listed coordinates.


Binary, or base 2, is a numeral system consisting of two digits, 0 and 1. We use base 10, but anything with a computer chip (which seems to be almost everything today) uses the binary system.
"In November 1937, George Stibitz, then working at Bell Labs, completed a relay-based computer he dubbed the "Model K" (for "Kitchen", where he had assembled it), which calculated using binary addition. Bell Labs thus authorized a full research programme in late 1938 with Stibitz at the helm. Their Complex Number Computer, completed January 8, 1940, was able to calculate complex numbers. In a demonstration to the American Mathematical Society conference at Dartmouth College on September 11, 1940, Stibitz was able to send the Complex Number Calculator remote commands over telephone lines by a teletype. It was the first computing machine ever used remotely over a phone line (Wikipedia)."

Since this is a memorial to my first find, I would like to read about your first find.
 The cache is a medium lock-n-lock with room for small trades. BYOP just in case. The cache is located at:
